Half Day Horse Riding Tours

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 look at some spectacular native bird life 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.

Although the guide was very informative, it was so boring. Lots of mozzies, and nothing to see around the hot, dry property. Couldn’t wait to get off the horse.

Hey there! Did the horse ride. Gorgeous area. My buddy was Lily who is really knowledgeable about the local area. Horses were well kept, well rounded- even in a drought! Horses bare foot, responsive and friendly. Catered for all abilities, and I got some good canters in with me

Please put the care of the horses first ! 1- Horses were left tied up all day with no access to water and half of them with no shelter from the sun. Tack was not loosened before tying them back up to make them more comfortable. Why are the horses who are not going on the ride

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I had to check on your booking to see if you had booked for 3 Horse riding tour on the day that you traveled. I have noted that you joined our 2nd tour and then left straight after this tour. Our horses are given water after every tour and have access to water in the morning prior to the tours starting, as we as in the afternoon when they are no longer working. They are then tied up again by our guides for the safety of the next group of people that are to go into the arena to partake in their horse ride. We request that mobile phones, bags, cameras are not taken on the tours but to people not holding on the the reins and not being safe, also they are at risk of being damaged on the tour. We also ask that wallets, keys are also not taken on tour as people in the past have lost them or they have been damaged. We welcome GoPros to be taken on all of our tours as long as they are on a helmet mount. (we even have a couple of helmet mounts that we lend out to people if they need one for the GoPro) You will find that many tourist companies offer the option to purchase photos while on tours. The choice is yours if you wish to purchase them.
