Suggested Items to bring on this trip:
Blazing Saddles is a family owned company, carefully operated by Michael and Venette Trout. In 1997 they relocated their horseback trail riding business to a beautiful forested area in Palm Cove from itís former, much more distant location on the Atherton Tablelands. Since then the operation has grown to include more than 60 horses and 16 staff members.
The company has developed a trail network that winds its way up into the rainforests, providing a scenic ride with both views of the forest and the tropical coast. They pay close attention to the safety of the riders, and carefully match riders to their horses, and have the latest in safety equipment, including helmets and a new breakaway safety stirrup.
Recently the company has created a second, separate trail network for ATV use, and now offers ATV rides for those interested in a more mechanized trail experience.
