Visited blazing saddles with family and had a great time. This little treat was easy to book with a quick call to the centre and was reasonably priced. On arrival the staff were attentive.

Had a great day out at blazing saddles. Friendly staff, great introduction to our horses and a running commentary of other horses their status in their herd and passing wildlife and fauna. Really felt like part of bushland Australia doing this. Thanks guys

As a first time quad biker and horse rider, this experience was FANTASTIC! Not only was the location really fun to do it, but you also get a good amount of time on both (we booked the combo tour). The setting is truly beautiful to ride around (Mountains, lakes, etc) and the staff helpful and friendly. Wear insect repellant though... More

Blazing Saddles completely exceeded our expectations! The staff are friendly and thoughtful to your skill level. Our 12yr old daughter was a little hesitant about the machines, but our guide, Zach, helped her get used to her smaller quad and then she took off and never looked back. The location is a farm with a fun off road course and... More

During our short ride excursion through a nice scenery we were guided by a professional team, who looked first whether the riders were advanced riders or beginners. Only then one could change over to a rapid gallop over the compound. Insofar, it was the right balance between safety and the feeling of freedom. We liked it very much. Greetings from... More

All day we were looked after by a gentlemen named Bradley how gave us special attention and care. My horse was in a bit of a foul mood so they watched over me and taught me how to react. The other horses were very sweet and were very well trained! I was just unlucky on the day. The ATVs were... More

I visited Blazing Saddles having no experience of horse riding. I would recommend any beginners going there, as I found my experience very pleasant. The two ladies who took us around were very nice. They choose to walk around with us rather than ride, as they could tell I was a tad nervous. They scenery is beautiful, and the whole... More
