Natural area parks for horse riding

A number of the city's hinterland reserves and surrounding semi-rural areas offer trails for use by horse riders, and there are many other informal trails and horse riding destinations across the south east.

There are also other opportunities, with a large number of trails on State-managed land including Nerang Regional Park.

A number of horse riding trail improvements have been completed in recent years, including the installation and upgrade of many horse step-overs to allow horse riders access to trails.

The popular 'Barcoo Court to Bellis Road' trail, which traverses part of Lower Beechmont Conservation Area and links with trails in Nerang Conservation Park, has recently been upgraded.
