My kids (aged 5 and 8) have not been horse riding before and this experience was great. Mandy is a very good trainer and instructor. The kids went from having no riding experience to handling their horses at the end of the hour long session. They also learnt how to groom the horses and got to feed the horses at... More

This place is great, particularly because of the lady who runs it... She is "salt of the earth", is fantastic with kids, and really knows her craft. A must do for young kids. Trip advisor really came through on this recommendation.

The highlight of our daughters trip to Port Douglas. They are 7 & 4, have had minimal experience of riding a horse (leads around Centennial Park and a few lessons for Ellie, the eldest)...enthusiastic amateurs at best. Buck & Dolly the horses were beautiful and perfectly suited to the girls abilities. Mandy puts everyone at ease immediately and had the... More

My two children, 7 & 8 years old, have never ridden a horse before. They were very fortunate to have Mandy for their first time. Both were excited but apprehensive to go horse riding. Mandy's style and her beautiful horses made them feel secure and keen to return. A pity we were only in Port Douglas for a week. Definitely... More

I am a reasonable rider , not a beginner, and had a lesson with Mandy . In a very short period of time she had already pointed out several bad habits that I had and ways of correcting them. I also had a really good time while working on the corrections , the horse she put me on was perfect... More

Thoroughly enjoyable action packed and exciting riding. Great variety of games/activities. Beautiful well behaved but spirited horses. I felt like I was a teenager riding again and my daughters who get weekly lessons elsewhere rated it "the best lesson ever!" I really recommend it as a great outing!

We passed the places on a rainy day wondering if they would offer a riding session for my 6 y old son. Mandy was very service oriented and despite weather etc she got my son straight away on the most calm and gorgeous horse and gave him an impressive 30 min riding lesson which was way beyond normal "tourist" riding...
