This was the most amazing horse riding experience for children that I have ever seen. The instructor Mandy guided my 5 year old daughter through different circuits and she leant in a half hour session how to trot, move the horse to go left and right and many other fun things. It was well worth the money and Dolly the... More

My best friend (formerly the manager of an equestrian centre) organised a horse ride for my 3yr old son. They were friendly and made my son feel very comfortable on his horse "Dolly". The instructor tailored the lesson (ride) to suit my son and his abilities. I was one very proud mum as they took him over jumps, got flags... More

Booked the kids in for little horse riding treat as they had been begging to go for a ride all holiday. Being only three and five years old I thought we would be pretty limited in what they could do. When we got to Port Douglas Horse Riding we met with Mandy and she made the girls feel confident and... More

We recently visited port douglas and our daughter and her friend (aged 8 and 9 years) went for a one hour horseriding lesson. They loved it so much we booked in for another one. The hour was action packed and the girls (who have some experience but not much) got to try many different things. Mandy was great with the... More

We visited Mandy while staying in Port Douglas for a week and I would strongly recommend popping by for a ride if you have kids. Kate, our 4yo, had been on a horse before but was no rider. Mandy gave her a great experience, from getting her horse ready to trotting around the paddock. Kate had a go at walking,... More

My 6 year old autistic boy and 3 year old girl are quite unadventurous when it comes to animals and outdoor activities generally. Mandy was excellent with them teaching them to mount, turning, rise and even had them experiencing a small jump! They loved it and Mandy's experience and professionalism was delivered in a fun and friendly way. Very well... More

Our 11 year old boy and 7 year old girl are not the most adventurous souls. But they both had their first horse riding lesson here and they both loved it. It does not have the beach or the rainforest - its just around the farm. But for kids who are beginning it's perfect.

my sisters had their first experience of being on a horse here and it was GREAT unlike alot of other horse riding places they actually taught them how to ride them and not just follow the leader. I would recommend this establishment over any of the others
