Living and working in the city is exhausting and extremely stressful. One great way to get rid of that stress and feel full of life again, is to enjoy a Blue Mountains Horse Riding experience. There are several establishments in the area offering these riding tours, so it’s simply a matter of heading out that way, and putting the city behind you to enjoy a few hours of absolute peace and tranquility.
The day starts early, with a hearty breakfast, after which you saddle up and take a leisurely ride on a horse that has been specially selected for your level of expertise, whether you’re a pro, or have never ridden a horse before.
You’ll make your way slowly through gullies and along rocky ridges, where you will see some of the wildlife of the area, including lyrebirds, goannas, wombats, wallaroos, kangaroos, as well as plenty of cattle, sheep and horses that live on the farms in the area. The landscapes you wander through are absolutely magnificent, with their lush green glens and high, imposing cliffs, and you will experience the same serenity and tranquility that the pioneers of the bush must have done here, more than 150 years ago.
As you make your way higher and higher into the mountains, you will have the opportunity of enjoying some of the most breathtakingly beautiful views in the country.
Riding on horseback through deep gullies, next to one of the most spectacular rivers in Australia, and along the high ridges of the mountain, is a truly exhilarating experience, and one which you will remember for the rest of your life. When you reach the bottom of the mountain, you get to ride through the wilderness region, which is filled with magic, mystery, and legends – yet another thrilling experience.
During your stay at one of these establishments, you get to live in rustic, comfortable accommodation where you can have a relaxing sleep in, participate in activities on the farm, take your camera and wander around the bush, or simply sit in the shade under a leafy tree, and take in all the wonderful scenery surrounding you.

Many people are finding that taking a ride on horseback up and over mountains, along scenic rivers, through untouched wilderness and pastures, and breathing in that fresh country air is the best way to get rid of the stresses and strains of everyday city life.
