What a great way to spend a morning . Mandy the owner was very patient with our 4 year old and almost 7 year old children and showed them a number of tricks and gave them confidence in the saddle. Recommend you book ahead, as this is quite popular. Definitely do this again

My 14 year old daughter and her friend (14 year old boy) recently enjoyed a fantastic 1 hour horse riding lesson with Mandy in July during our visit to Port Douglas. They would have loved to return for a 2nd lesson but unfortunately time did not permit.They had so much fun and I recommend this activity to others. Thanks Mandy... More

This was all that the previous reviewers had raved about. My Partner had never touched a horse nevermind ridden one, by the time he finished the hour he was feeling very comfortable with the whole experience. Thank you Mandy

I had an incredible experience with Mandy from Port Douglas Horse Riding today! I hadn't ridden a horse in over 15 years (since I was a teenager) and she was both considerate of my past ability, pushed me to push myself but also gave me better coaching on my technique (or lack of it) than I ever had when I...

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
