Riders must be over 6yrs to leave the training
As we care for the welfare of our horses
we do not ask our horses to carry a person
more than 100kg
the farm stay began in 1993 we had 5 horses and we
use to ride once a fortnight to gather the cattle.
Now in 2009 we have 34 horses and offer horse
riding to our guests daily.
you are an intermediate or beginner rider we have
a very safe, relaxed and wonderful style of
teaching the basics.
riders are impressed with the quality of the
horses, however we do not promise fast rides as
safety is our priority. We are confident
that you will enjoy your ride with us.
rides are not head to tail pony treks and the
horses are well trained making the horses easy to
manouvour. Riders enjoy the fact that they
can actually control their horse to move
independently across the wide open fields.
and ride with us and experience the vastness of
the Central Queensland country side and see the
farm, plants and animals up close and personal.
horse tours are a specialized activity and
somewhat unique compared to other trail riding
tours. You have the opportunity to groom and
feed your horse. If you are a beginner or an
experience rider there will be a horse to suit
you. We spend from 7.30am til 11.30am with
during my farmstay I was assigned to a buckskin
horse called Rebel. He had a bit more go than some
of the other horses (I'm a horse girl from way
back and have my own horses) so I was up for a bit
of fun. At Myella Farmstay everyone is assigned to
horses according to personality and ability - and
I’ve got to give it to them, because they
usually get it spot on. I had an absolute ball
riding Rebel, but even though I ride all the time
I was *so* sore on day two after several hours in
the saddle on my first day at the farmstay, but
sooo much fun!
all the great farmstay activities take the
opportunity to do a bit of washing, play games, go
into Baralaba or go for a dip in the pool.

weeks have been amazing. I've been
entertained everyday by the farm life, the horses,
the guides, the new guests and of course Lyn and
Peter's fabulous stories and poems. Olive,

retreat from the mobs of backpackers.

I"m a true pony girl...And I'm sticking with
the fact that Isis in the best pony around!

Thanks for having me, Lyn, Peter, Olive, Shane,
Renee, Kyle and Dave you've all been fantastic.
Good luck with everything. I'll miss this

quote from Vicki.....
”Every morning we went horse riding for at least
two hours. With over 30 horses, there is a horse
to suit every skill level. Don’t be scared of
your first ride, you’ll receive excellent
instruction and guidance, which makes it much
easier than you think and you are well looked
after by the Myella team and also by reliable
groups are fairly small other than most tourist
horse-riding places that mainly go on prepared
tracks in a strict line one after the other.
There is always something different to achieve
with the horses here. One of the best features
during the rides is certainly the open countryside
. Even though it is a relatively small farm
for the area, it still appeared huge to me; I
haven’t been going exactly the same way for once
and a ride to the other end of the property
(Wallaby Hill) took us more than an hour.
from magnificent trail-rides, we got to know our
horses and brush up our skills by saddling,
feeding and grooming them each day. Whilst
out riding the farmer is also checks the watering
points for the cattle and can report to the family
the grass-conditions for the cattle etc.
horse-riding was definitely my favourite activity;
a big thank you to Ray, René, Lyn for guiding and
Ginger, Candy, Whisky, Isis, Samurai and Rebal for
not kicking me off.
