Ride the Outback, departing from Ironbark House Dimbulah, begins with my guests meeting myself and my three horses Angel, China and Misfit all of whom I have owned since they were youngsters. All three well-schooled mares have been used for a variety of equestrian events including dressage, jumping, horse-sports, barrel racing and cattle work, but are also fantastic out on tracks as mobile wildlife and nature viewing vehicles! As you have probably realised this is going to be an small intimate ride of a maximum of 3 guests.
Once meeting the horses you will be given some basic instruction and evaluation of your skills before we head out around our 1345 acre cattle and wildlife property for a 1.5 hour ride. We will leave the stables and head out through the forested grazing country towards a rocky outcrop called Wallaby Rock, once there you will have an opportunity to see and photograph the rock wallabies.
On a typical ride you may see...… our colony of Mareeba rock wallabies, kangaroos, wallaroos, wedge-tailed eagles, dingoes, many water-birds around one of our 6 dams and of course there will be cattle as this is a working property. Actual riding time is approx. 1.5 hours.
