Wow! My 2 kids loved every minute! They got to help groom & feed their horses, do some exercises, taught some important instructions on how to ride and stop, rode by themselves, did some little jumps, climb hills and have a wee race! They experienced so much more than I thought they would. They had so much fun that they... More

She made them both feel confident, explained clearly what to do and gave them an hour of fun activities on the horses, giving them a... More

Was expecting a basic pony ride just being led around rhe paddock for our daughter but got a really fun lesson on top of it. Immediately booked slots for each day of our stay. Our daughter enjoyed each outing and really progressed and showed definite improvement. Our daughter has special needs and is limited in what she understands and what... More

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

Our 2 kids, 11 and 9 had a fantastic horse riding lesson with Mandy from Port Douglas Horse Riding on Buck and Dolly, 2 beautiful horses. 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

Mandy was great with the kids and in no time our complete novices were trotting and weaving through the poles. Thanks again

this was a different experience to what we have enjoyed in the past which is what we thoroughly enjoyed. this wasn't a trail ride - rather an insightful skills learning experience.

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...
