Take a Horseback Ride to the Beach on Magnetic Island

Imagine yourself trekking through the bush, on horseback, to a pristine beach, and taking your horse for a dip in the cool, clear waters of the Coral sea.  If this sounds like a great way to relax and have fun, book your ride now.

Taking a horseback ride to the beach on Magnetic Island, from the Horseshoe Bay Ranch, is one of the most popular things to do while holidaying on the island.

It is affordable family fun and an exciting adventure for backpackers visiting Australia. Enjoy the scenic beauty of Horseshoe Bay, its wildlife, beach, lagoon, and hinterland from horseback as you ride through the bush. At the beach, unsaddle your horse and experience the sensation of riding your horse bareback into the ocean.

Our well-schooled horses are suitable for riders, no matter what your levels of experience. The kids don’t miss out either; we also cater for children’s pony rides.

At the Horseshoe Bay Ranch, we offer regular, scheduled, 2-hour rides at 9 am and 3 pm every day. Each ride takes you through the bush to the beach where you have the opportunity to ride your horse bareback into the sea.


To keep our horses happy and healthy we do have a weight limit.
