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.

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 amazing! Mud and dirt everywhere and you were able to drift around everywhere. A very positive experience! I even gave the tour guide a $50 tip I was so happy!

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 ride around the billabong felt very relaxed.

We did the horse riding and ATV tour. This was our first time doing it and our guide, Bradley, ensured we made the most of the opportunity. The horse riding was nice and relaxing with good views throughout. During the ride, we also got to take the horses at a more faster pace, which was extremely fun.

The ATV ride was even more exceptional. After a quick safety session, we went around the ranch, followed by going around the track at our own pace. The track is well organised with a great adrenaline rush. Make sure to wear your dirty clothes as your going to get muddy, which adds to the experience.

Overall, an exceptional experience combining the leisurely horse riding and more action-packed ATV tour.
