There is a truly special Byron experience where you can be in the open, natural environment, take in some of the special highlights of the area while connecting to the wild in yourself and nature. The Ranch Byron Bay gives people experiences on horseback that allow them to embrace the Australian wilderness, let go of their busy lives and feel free.

The horses are strong, gentle, reliable, well trained and ‘raised on so much love and gentleness. They know no fear, only love.’ The tack is high-quality western and stock saddles with luxurious woven saddle blankets.

The vast open space of the beach is accessible and you can share the wind with sea eagles, watch whales and dolphins from the saddle, enjoy views of the lighthouse, and take in the waves. There are one- or two-hour Beach Rides, which are suitable for all levels of riders, and The Ranch Byron Bay ensures that there are plenty of chances to trot and canter if riders wish.

Shanti McIvor from The Ranch Byron Bay explains that ‘We are the only approved horse-riding company in the Shire to take people on horseback tours to Minyon Falls, which is an incredible day for people and includes a gourmet picnic’. The Wilderness Treks allow people to explore beautiful, less-visited parts of the area that not many get to see. Being deep in a rainforest is one of the most rejuvenating experiences one can have; add in a strong and gentle ride, wonderful views, cool streams, and lunch sitting atop an escarpment and you have an unforgettable adventure.

There are other horse-riding packages on offer from The Ranch Byron Bay; for example, their three-day Mountain Lodge experience, which is fully catered and includes rides through farmland and wilderness. Guests stay in a sandstone-and-timber bunkhouse that has a pool, spa, and visiting masseuse. Meals are shared and can be accompanied by a well-earned glass of wine at the end of the day as well as a campfire under the stars before bunking down.
