Title : Exploring on Four Feet
Exploring on Four Feet
Do you like horses and horse riding?
If so, then you’ll love some of the opportunities available to you from your accommodation. Cairns and the surrounding areas have some magnificent countryside and much of it is actually better explored on horseback than by car or on foot.
You can choose to go along beautiful stretches of the coast, inland to explore the countryside or through virgin rainforest. You also get the opportunity to see a huge variety of animals and discover a little of old wild Australia in a billabong.
Now don't worry, you don't need to be an Olympic-level equestrian competitor to take part in this sort of day out. In fact, it’s perfectly possible to get involved even if you have never been on a horse before in your life.
All the horses are gentle and well trained plus you will always be under the personal care and attention of an expert rider and local guide. You’ll also get a basic introductory riding lesson and it’s amazing how quickly you’ll pick up the fundamental points.
Of course, if you’ve never ridden before then the chances are the following day you're going to be a little bit sore in parts of your body you may not have even realized existed beforehand but that is usually a mild side-effect and part of the fun!
If you really like your adventure then you can combine half a day horse riding through the local forests and beaches with the other half exploring on a quad bike. It’s a fantastic all-round day and you can decide which method of transport suits you best after sampling both.
If you’d like a bit more detail about these sorts of great trips and leisure opportunities then we’ll be only too glad to help you discover more when you get up here for your holiday.
