My wife and I had a great time quad biking around the farm. A well recommended experience. Mike and Donna were quite accomodating, especially with the challenges of COVID-19. Thank you :)

Fantastic fun for all
Mar. 2020
My husband and youngest daughter rode the ATV's and my eldest daughter and I rode the horses. We all had a fantastic time. The scenery is beautiful and all the staff were very lovely and helpful. They have a mini bus to pick you up from your hotel which is very helpful when you are on a holiday.

Amazing experience!

Yesterday my fiancé and I went on the horse riding tour. It was such a wonderful and serene experience. The horses were so calm and good-natured and the staff were friendly and informative. I’m an intermediate rider and I even got to have a few canters on my horse Dancer. I really enjoyed my morning at Blazing Saddles and will be recommending to all of my friends!

Horse back riding followed by fun on easy to ride quad bikes. It’s suitable for all skill levels.

Fun and Exciting Experience
Nov. 2019
Exciting and suitable for all age. Track design is good with a good mix of turns, slopes, straight, etc.
Guide will assist you even you are not good at driving.

Coach pick up from hotel and return trip to hotel. Timing is nice too, went to ATV in the morning, then rafting in the afternoon.

Remember to wear sunscreen and sunglasses (or protective eyewear)
Be ready to get dirty!

Blazing Saddles - Disappointing
Oct. 2019 • Family
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.

Great morning! Friendly staff
Nov. 2019 • Solo
I booked the morning tour so it wouldn't be so hot and busy. We where just with 6 people so that was perfect. They really listen well to you experience and pick horse that fits perfectly.
I had a great morning! The riding was nice, trough the Bush, going up and down hill.
The pick up and drop off was perfect too!

Blazing Saddle Horse Riding
Nov. 2019 • Solo
I had an amazing time at blazing saddles adventures. I’m an advanced rider and got the chance to really enjoy the tail ride, but at the same time the beginners got looked after so everyone felt very comfortable. The horses were perfectly matched to the riders wishes and abilities.
