Not quite what we were expecting, as it's a lesson in a couple of paddocks and an arena, rather than a scenic trail ride. The instructors are very cautious, making sure the inexperienced riders don't go beyond their capabilities,which I appreciate and we managed to have a lot of fun. Good for horse mad kids.

Mandy was an excellent host and she accommodated us on a Sunday despite being her day off . The horse riding was the best thing that we experienced over the holidays . Thanks Mandy and we will recommend this to everyone , especially with young families .

Thanks so much to Mandy for fitting us in late this afternoon, as the last opportunity for us, flying home tomorrow. A wonderful hour spent learning the basics. My son (13) had never ridden a horse before, and had the time of his life. A perfect location to learn to ride in. The horses are very well looked after -... More

We took our young children 2 & 3 year olds and we all went riding. Mandy was fantastic at assessing the kids abilities and we were able to let our 2 & 3 year old along with ourselves learn to ride, including little jumps. It was a fantastic experience that we all loved. I can't recommend this highly enough.

Mandy was a lovely instructor who was patient, funny and informative. It was my daughter's first time to learn riding a horse. She (12 years old) got the basic skills of riding in just half an hour time, and this helped her develop self confidence. Highly recommended, especially for families with children.

Mandy is excellent in teaching kids. My daughter is shy and reserved but she gets along well with Mandy. She learns so quick under Mandy's professional coaching. After just half an hour, she can trot a little bit by her own. This is amazing.

My wife spent a very good time with Mandy riding horse. Mandy is full of good advices very helpful. She has a huge ranch with many beautiful horses and good infrastructures. The only regret is that she could not get out of the ranch for a tour. Anyway, Port Douglas horse riding is a good plan!!

We took our 5 year old twins for a half hour ride - amazing! Mandy is a professional horsewoman and trainer - and in this time, had our delighted children trotting, having a little barrel race and trying a small jump! The horses are beautiful and happy. Can't recommend this enough :) Thank you

My kids (4 and 2) were really excited about seeing and riding the horses. Mandy was fantastic. Involving the kids from the outset and giving them a wonderful experience. Buck and Dolly were gorgeous horses and the kids haven't stopped asking when they can go back for another ride.
