My daughters, 8 and 5 participated in an hour long lesson with their cousins on our recent holiday in Port Douglas. Mandy was an excellent instructor and the lesson was more like an introduction to looking after and caring for your horse, as well as learning the basics of horse riding. The girls thoroughly enjoyed it. It was safe, fun... More

The kids were complete beginners and the horses were extremely calm and Mandy was great at getting them to feel confident on the horses. It was just the two of them throughout the hour... More

This was more than a "pony ride." $40 and a half hour with Mandy was my three year old's horse riding dream. "Dolly" was a calm and kind steed as my normally fidgety boy followed Mandy's instructions and learned to trot, go up and down hills, make turns, play a cool flag game and best of all say "whoa" and...

We noticed the ' pony ride today' sign driving past and did an impromptu stop. Wow, it was more than just a pony ride, it was a great horse riding experience for both my children, aged 8 and 6. Mandy accommodated us very well as we had no bookings. The kids had an amazing time and Mandy is a great... More
