Cowboy Up Trail Riding

Multiple Locations

Cowboy Up Trail Riding offers you the experience to ride the 'Cowboy Way' on their friendly, good natured, Quarter Horses. In comfortable western saddles, you will have a relaxing ride through a working cattle property. Trails will take you through picturesque country where wallabies, wild deer and native birdlife thrive. From rolling hills you will witness magnificent views of surrounding mountains and farmland.

All rides are fully guided and you can choose from a one hour ride, two hour ride (includes coffee and cake), half day cattle muster or half day ride (includes light lunch).

Cowboy Up Trail Riding also hires horses for movies and television productions. So you could be riding one of our movie horses on the trail.
