To assist horse owners there are some paddocks available for rent for the agistment of the horses.

Owners of horses also have minimum standards and animal specific standards they must comply with.   In certain circumstances approval may also be needed to keep a horse.


Horse – Approval to keep

Approval is requried for the keeping of horses on certain land in the Burdekin Shire.

Under Local Law No. 2 (Animal Management) 2012 to keep a horse on certain allotments requires an approval. 

The requirements in relation to applying for an Approval and the details in relation to horses can be found on the Approval to Keep Animals page.
