The gentle motion of the horse, the steady clip clop of their sure feet on the land and the sense of comradeship with your fellow riders are all things you will remember long after the experience is over.
When they think of the Gold Coast, most people picture golden beaches and exciting nightlife, however tucked in behind all this is a veritable treasure trove of gorgeous mountain scenery and amazing landmarks. Experience the Gold Coast hinterland by horseback and you will never forget it.
