Took the girls here yesterday, amanda was very good at gauging experience levels and selection horses to suit. Steph and Izzy had a lovely morning and really enjoyed the ride. It was also nice to mattaus the resident friendly dog. Thanks Mandy. Stu.

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

This horse riding experience was awesome.The instructor Mandy was excellent and my daughter Leah enjoyed every minute. The horse "Beau" was gorgeous and fantastic for learning on and obviously well loved. Many thanks to Mandy and Beau for a great afternoon!

After reading reviews and deciding to avoid the tourist "traps" for horseback riding (geared to first time and inexperienced riders, tour buses full of them), we found this gem as we drove from Cairns to the Daintree Rainforest. We knew our intermediate-skilled level 12-yr old rider would not be happy being led nose-to-nose slowly along a pathway. She can walk,... More

Thanks, Mandy! Our 3 kids loved their horse-riding lessons with you, in January 2015. We are regular holiday visitors to Port Douglas, but first time visitors to your school. Our kids loved the pre-lesson grooming and saddling of the horses, they loved the lesson and feeding the horses a little 'treat' afterwards. The horses are beautifully trained and the service...

My daughter & I did a 1hr session with Mandy on Wednesday & absolutely loved it. I had Beau & my 7 year old daughter had Star, such beautiful horses. It was the first time id been on a horse since I had a nasty fall when I was 17 so I was pretty nervous, but the horses had great... More

A very well structured and planned experience. 2 10-11 year old girls with previous experience found it interesting enough to want to do it again. Perhaps more chances for free play but experience probably wasn't there this time. Definitely recommend.
