enjoyable, but disappointing
Feb 2021
I took my partner on a surprise trip away which included a horse ride at blazing saddles. I booked the Painkallac Dam ride, which I was told would have a lot of time for canter / galloping, which would have been perfect for my partner as she is a very experienced rider. To our surprise, there were two opportunities to canter, both of which were approx 100-150 meters. I also organised for a cheese / champagne platter which upon stopping discovered our guide forgot to pack glasses.
Overall, it was enjoyable, but also disappointing.

Fun Times!
Jan 2021
As lovers of the West (Surf) Coast of Victoria, we're always looking for something fun to do (other than the beach), with the kids and friends... and Blazing Saddles is one of those things. Not only are the staff friendly and professional, the horses are sweet and the rides spectacular! You can enjoy the trails though the Otways or head to Fairhaven beach for a run on the sand...What a way to spend the day!

Amazing bush and beach ride
Jan 2021 • Couples
Absolutely amazing experience!! The horses are sooo well behaved and the scenery even better! Amazing views coming over the otways national park and amazing to have a walk and trot on the beach!We had the beautiful horses Indi and Willow! Also can’t speak more highly of Ally( I think that was her name and feel terrible that I don’t remember 🤦🏽‍♀️) we felt so comfortable with her and she gave us great tips while learning to trot! So easy to talk to as well! I would recommend doing the private beach ride as it’s a bit more personal with instructors and get to go at your own pace!Hope we will be back one day ☺️

it was an amazing experience with this trail ride. the horses were amazingly trained even know my mother received a cheeky appaloosa to ride. it felt like it went for ages but it was only 1 hr to and back on the trail ride. I totally recommend going here if you want to go on a trail ride. the ride also has beautiful views of the water and the Aireys inlet light tower.

Fantastic

This ride literally could not have been any better. It was awesome! I went on the combo ride (beach and bush). Every aspect was excellent. My horse was great - well trained with lovely manners! The guide Sophie was brilliant, such a friendly and happy person. Scenery was spectacular! Plenty of opportunities to canter. You just cannot beat cantering along the beach!
I absolutely recommend this ride. I went because I had some time to kill and I definitely wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was. Thank you Sophie and the team at Blazing Saddles, I will be back as soon as I can!

Great Pony Rides

Went to blazing saddles with small children. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Horses were extremely friendly and loved pats. Small children can be walked around a set path in ponies.

Family Fun Ride
Apr 2019 • Family
Our family day out included a wonderful horse ride with Blazing Saddles. This is a very professional establishment. The horses are obviously well looked after and in good condition. The staff made sure that they were aware of each riders ability and chose a horse for each person accordingly.
Our group was a mixture of beginners and intermediate riders so walking and trotting was enough. The scenery is wonderful and reaching the ridge and looking out over the water an added bonus. Boots and helmets are provided if needed. This is a great way to spend a couple of hours.

Great experience!
Apr 2019 • Family
Excellent riding experience! My son, who has quite a bit of experience riding, loved the many opportunities to canter, and the friendliness of the staff who were always open to questions. My daughter, who has recently had some bad experiences riding, had a blast in the individual lesson with Ruby who really helped her build confidence. Compared to many other facilities this was incredibly professional and reasonably priced, and although some of the equipment was questionable (I was always told him gumboots were terrible for riding in?) there were other options (normal boots). We went on Easter weekend and the staff were great to facilitate our late booking, and we ended up going for rides everyday of our holiday! Coming back in a few weeks, and would recommend to anyone regardless of their experience. Thanks Blazing Saddles!

Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your riding. Can I ask what were the equipment issues? We do offer gumboots but have toe caps on all our stirrups to avoid people getting boots caught in stirrups. R Caroline

Amazing Kids Party Location
Apr 2019 • Family
My three year old was begging for a pony party so we booked blazing saddles with a $25 deposit and arrived on the day with all our picnic items cakes and party toys and set up around the seating area. We brought our own BBQ and we're given free rein of the picnic area to set up how we felt. The customer service was great. They weren't pushy, they were chilled and helpful and the price of a pony ride was $10 - which is exceptionally reasonable for the age group. The ride itself was excellent. We weren't confined to a small fenced area. Instead, they have their pony rides along a trail which gave it a grown up feel and a decent and enjoyable 15 minute ride. I was super lucky with the weather (not too hot / not cold and no wind). Thank you to the girls who worked on 13/4. Nothing was trouble for you with my extra rides. You were pleasant and helpful and definitely a venue I will be visiting again soon!
