Take a Horseback Ride to the Beach on Magnetic Island, QLD.

For over 30 years Horseshoe Bay Ranch (originially Bluey’s) has provided travellers from all over the world with the truly magical experience of swimming with their horse in one of the most beautiful locations on earth, Magnetic Island, Queensland.

Imagine yourself trekking on horseback through native Australian bushland and arriving at a pristine beach. Now unsaddle your horse and experience the sensation of riding them bareback into the ocean. Sound like a dream? Let us make it a reality!

Taking a horseback ride to the beach on Magnetic Island is one of the most popular things to do while holidaying on the island, and for good reason. It is affordable family fun and an exciting adventure for backpackers visiting Australia.

Our horses are well-schooled and calm-natured allowing us to cater for the first time rider through to the more experienced and our friendly, experienced guides are always close by to assist and ensure you are having a great time.

The kids don’t miss out either; we also cater for children’s pony rides.

At Horseshoe Bay Ranch we offer 2-hour rides at 8:30am and 2:30pm 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.
