Horse riding safety

Horse riding is a unique way to experience many of the national parks in NSW. Riding opportunities vary from relatively flat open areas to steeper terrain with more challenging trails through remote areas. Careful preparation for your horse ride will help ensure a safe and enjoyable time for horses and riders.
