What You Can Expect

Horse Riding Tour from Cairns

Half-Day Horseback Riding Tour from Cairns or Palm Cove

After hotel pickup, your Cairns horseback-riding tour starts with a safety introduction and short riding lesson. You’ll be matched up with one of the horses, all of whom have gentle natures, and then take off into the wilderness.

Follow your guide along trails that wander through pockets of rainforest, sugarcane fields and mangroves, and pause by a large watering hole to look for native wildlife like geese, birds and maybe even a crocodile. Then stop for a cup of billy tea, made the old-fashioned Aussie way over a campfire.

We had a great time Horseback riding! The staff from Blazing Saddles was wonderful. They met us at our ship and pointed out all the sights in Cairns to and from our riding experience. We were very happy!

You get a one on one experience with a guide throughout the area. The horse I rode was tame. It was great fun.

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2015

Lovely tour. Felt a bit rushed as we arrived. Would be helpful if they listed the items we needed for riding or that we weren't allowed to bring cameras beforehand.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better November 2016

Unfortunately this trip was not as exciting as we had hoped as we really just went round the same flat ground in a number of different directions. Also not allowed to take phones or cameras so the only way to have photos was to buy the professional ones! We have done horse riding trips in a number of locations but this one was quite disappointing.
