The Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing manage the Kidman Trail.

Be familiar with Australian road rules regarding horses, bicycles and pedestrians.

Horse need to be healthy and able to be controlled. On many parts of the trail horses need to be familiar with traffic passing closely, crossing water courses and a variety of distractions including cyclists, walkers, emus, kangaroos and gas guns in vineyards.

Leave nothing behind. Take all rubbish, excess horse feed and manure home with you.

Biosecurity - stopping the spread of plant and animal diseases is important.
