What better way to experience the Aussie bush, rainforest and spectacular views than on horseback with Blazing Saddles.
Our Horse-riding tour offers a safe, relaxing way to meander through rainforest pockets, mangrove wetland, sugarcane fields and native bush! With a stable of horses to suit all ages and levels, this is a perfect family adventure. Our horses have a friendly, mature nature and will be matched to each riders experience and ability. Draw up on horse-back alongside our 18 acre billabong for a billy tea over a camp fire and the chance to see a croc in the wild!
Our horse-riding trails meander through beautiful bushland and rainforest, allowing you to get in amongst nature and experience it first hand.
Our trails are perfect for absolute beginner riders through to the more experienced rider. We hand pick your horse for your particular skill level, provide you with a safety and introductory riding lesson and then split groups into skill levels so as to ensure you have a safe and fun horse riding experience.
Our emphasis on safety is well known around these parts so please look through our safety accreditation from the Australian Horse Industry Council and other safety systems in place.
