Our Safety Culture
We target zero accidents and zero customer complaints.

Our aim is to ensure that we provide you with the most memorable lifetime experience, but working with animals and Mother Nature is not always plain sailing. However, your safety is our lifeblood, so as an organisation we have established and are committed to a ‘zero target’ safety culture
We are members of the Australian Trail Horse Riding Association (ATHRA) and have established safety protocols and standards to ensure that each and every person leaves and returns from our rides safely.
- All rides have a 1:4 ratio of staff to customers.
- The Lead Guide for the group must approve any trotting or cantering.
- There is no smoking on site.
- No riding under the influence of alcohol.
- No riding under the influence of drugs.
- Riders’ weight must be under 100kg (subject to conditions).
Our Parks Victoria Permit
We aim to operate the most professional horse riding service on the Mornington Peninsula – and beyond!
As part of best practice, we have been granted a Tour Operators Licence by Parks Victoria. This allows businesses to conduct appropriate, organised tourism and recreational business activities on Public Land Areas in Victoria; in our instance, the Mornington Peninsula National Park.
Our Green Focus
If environmental sustainability matters to you then you’ll be pleased to know it matters to us too.
Gunnamatta Trail Rides has developed and fostered a culture of green sustainability and makes every effort to be as eco-friendly as possible.
We have a strong commitment to expanding the stewardship of our land and its resources and have in place a number of ‘green initiatives’ to re-use and recycle materials and resources within the business and property.
