We would like to thank all previous customers and supporters
of HorseBack Riding Victoria (owned and operated by OAV Tours Ltd). Due
to increasing costs and mounting losses, govt regulation, dog attacks and odd
complaints by grumpy residents we are no longer able to offer Horseback riding
at a reasonable cost. Horseback riding is being limited to people who can
afford their own horses and enjoying a trail ride or beach ride is becoming
more and more out of reach for those who cannot afford to own a horse.
I started the business to share with others my wonderful experiance riding and
swimming with a horse. It was one of the peak experiances in my life.
I have volenteered all my time in the last few years and purchased lots
of supporting equipment to try and reduce costs and improve efficency.
However, costs keep rising regardless and losses keep mounting. So it is with a sad
heart I will take my losses and no longer offer the service.
If you have an interest in any adventure tourism in BC I would recommend you
take advantage of it as soon as possible lest it become much more expensive or
cease to exist.
And special thanks to:
Christine Neidhoefer (manager and trail guide)
