This is pretty much a repeat of an earlier post. We were not allowed cameras or phones. The provider will take periodic photos which you can purchase at the end of the ride for about 25 AUD each. The ride seemed to be in figure 8's around the same area. What Billy Tea? Didn't happen. Campfire? Nope. Sugarcane fields not on the property. Fenced off. I don't know where the photos were taken that showed a beach area.
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.
I cannot recommend this tour. The guides seemed unexperienced and did not give enough information about how to communicate with the horses when riding. Trotting was optional, communication from the guide throughout the trip was bad, so only the first one in the row could understand the guide when explaining how to sit on the horse and what to do while trotting. They put two horses in a row which did not like each other, with a total beginner on the first one the horse was too tall for a beginner anyways. The second one bit in its back, the first one jumped and the girl fell. She lay on the ground without moving, the guides went to her but seemed helpless. It took a great while before someone came to bring her back to the camp. She was fine in the end but their attempts to help her could have been more professional. After she was taken back to the camp there was only one guide in the front, and no guide in the end of the row who could have noticed if someone struggled. Not recommendable for total beginners.
This tour was amazing!
The tour was pretty plainish, worth for someone wants to experience to sit on the horse and let it walk around.
Ladies and fella leading trip were professional, safety conscious and courteous. Nice ride but would have liked it to be longer. Horses well behaved
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.
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!
I didn't realize the trip would be so short; it was very difficult to tell from the website description about the length of the horseback ride. (We were in the saddle less than 1-1/4 hours). The guide was great, but we mostly made figure 8's through the sugar cane fields and a portion of the rainforest, and it was easy to tell we'd covered the same territory before. I did get to canter and trot a short bit, which was fun, and you don't always get to do that on a trail ride. I would have preferred a longer ride with a real "destination" as a goal.
You get a one on one experience with a guide throughout the area. The horse I rode was tame. It was great fun.
