If you’re wild at heart, horseback riding on the sand dunes of Port Stephens with Sahara Trails is what you’ve been waiting for. Getting to ride a horse is an adventure in itself, but combining it with a backdrop of moving sand mountains and beach views is just awesome. As you take in the unbelievable scenery, you can’t help but notice just how gnarly horses are. There really is nothing like horse riding on one of Australia’s best coastlines!
With the wind in your face as you trot your horse through sacred Aboriginal land, you’ll realize how magical Port Stephens is. The personal experience that local company Sahara Trails offers, makes for a ride that exciting and equally peaceful. Beginners will be fine too — the guides here are super helpful. From the highest ridge point of the dunes, to the beach where the water nearly touches your feet in the stirrups, your guide will make sure you’ll remember this ride forever. Now giddy up and hold on! Because this will seriously be one of the best rides of your life.
