Horseback Riding with Blazing Saddles

There are over 70 easy going horses at Blazing Saddle and each person is paired up with a horse that is suited to age, height, weight and riding skill level. Kids as young as four years old are able to ride a horse and even the most experienced horse riders can enjoy a canter through the Australian bushlands. Generally during your two hour ride you will wind through paddocks of bushland and rainforest, climb rock hills, walk through creeks and conquer steep inclines. If you feel comfortable then you may be able to take your horse for a trot.

The professional staff will assess everyone’s abilities and confidence levels in a non- discriminatory manner, giving personalised attention for those in need. Only the most advanced safety gear is used at Blazing Saddles including safe-rider safety stirrups with a quick release mechanism.

There is nothing more transpiring than travelling horseback through authentic Australian landscapes, where you are in complete control of the friendly giant beneath you. Please note children have to be 4 years old and up and weight restrictions apply.

ATV Quad Bike Tours with Blazing Saddles

Choose from a powerful 250 cc quad bike or a more agile 90 cc ATV. No licence or previous experience is necessary; all you need to bring along is your sense of adventure and excitement and a pair of old trousers and closed in shoes. Test the limits of your powerful quad bike vehicle as you wind through challenging dirt track obstacle courses, weave in and out of rainforest tracks and dart through creeks and puddles of mud.

Blazing ATV Rides 2

Although the day can prove to be an adrenaline rush there is an option of taking it easy and just cruising through the tracks, admiring the lovely scenery that passes you by. The Honda ATV’s that are used at Blazing Saddles are serviced regularly and have enough power so you can really feel the grunt and manipulate the challenging hill climbs and water traps. You will be having so much fun on your scenic ATV tour that you won’t even notice that your face, shirt and pants have been completely painted with mud and dirt!.
