An Overview of Results from the Queensland Trail Horse Riding Survey, 2018

Throughout November 2018, Queensland Trail Horse Riders were invited to complete a survey. The focus was on capturing trail horse rider:

  • demographics,
  • motivations,
  • riding patterns,
  • satisfaction with trail ride sites,
  • club or association membership, and
  • use of communication and technology.

A total of 539 responses were received from riders across the length of the state. This represented individuals from the Tweed ranges on the southern border through to those from the Tablelands of Far North Queensland; and from Roma and Cunnamulla to Longreach in the west.

This overview is based on data captured through a survey distributed by the Queensland Outdoor Recreation Federation (QORF/ Outdoors Queensland). The survey was developed by the Australian Trail Horse Riders Association (ATHRA) in association with QORF to capture a range of perspectives regarding horse trail riding needs, experiences, club engagements and participation.
