Horse riding tours around Brisbane

19 September 2017

Say hello world and release your inner cowboy on a trail ride through the great south-eastern countryside. Whether you don’t know your stirrup from your saddle or you’re a closet Saddle Club and equestrian expert, horse riding companies in Brisbane and surrounds can offer an experience to suit everyone. Grab your favourite blue jeans, a pair of RMs and even a cowboy hat before you embark on your ride into the sunset – you could be whinnying some hearts here.

Horse riding hinterland, Scenic Rim 

Horse riding

Is there anything Mount Tamborine can’t offer? Thunderbird National Park offers horse rides through the rainforest and up the mountain to witness breathtaking views of the valley below. Riders of all skills are welcome and catered for – even the littlies can join with pony rides around the lawn. 

Slickers Horse Riding, Moreton Bay Region

Slickers Horse Riding

Saddle up to Slickers Horse Riding for the ride of a lifetime. Besides the regular style of trail rides around its Ocean View Road property (it’s called Ocean View for a reason), the family business also runs scenic trail rides to the local pub in Dayboro or the nearby winery, Ocean View Estates. Giddy up!

Nash Horse Trekking, Lockyer Valley 

Grab your cowboy attitude and head west to enjoy the great outdoors with trail rides and pub rides through the Lockyer Valley. For more adventurous folk, book in for an overnight camp out among the stars or pack up your swag and take on the Aussie bush for a few days.

Fordsdale Horseback Adventures, Lockyer Valley

Fordsdale Horseback Adventures

Offering one-hour, two-hour or full-day rides, you can experience the beauty of the Lockyer Valley with a ride along mountain trails catering for both beginners and the adventurous at heart. If you’re loving the country feel, opt to stay on the 1000-acre grazing property and do it all again the next day.   

Cedar Glen Farmstay, Scenic Rim

Cedar Glen

Nestled in the foothills of the spectacular "Lost World", Cedar Glen Farmstay lets you soak up life on the farm. Stay in one of the cattle property’s four historic cottages to enjoy a cheaper rate on trail rides – it seems silly to refuse this offer.  

Gummies Farm and Bush Tours,  Scenic Rim

Take in the surrounds of the Biddaddaba outback during a half-day or full-day ride on the back of a new found friend. Combine your scenic trail ride with farm activities including boomerang throwing, whip cracking and clay pigeon/skeet shooting for a true blue Aussie day out.
