My partner and I did the 1.5 hour ride through the pine forest. Helmets and chaps were provided. The guide was friendly and talkative, and we were fully briefed before heading out. The horses were well behaved and solid, and we had the opportunity for some trotting and cantering along the forest paths. It was a great outing, and we... More

You simply must book this! Myself and a friend had never been on a horse before but we felt so safe and enjoyed every minute. The views and scenery you ride past are amazing and the staff are so friendly. I can't recommend it enough just book it, you won't regret it!

I dont think we could have a place near to our heart as the place of Lindsey! The way she treats here animals is amazing. One big family. Even one of us used to be scared of driving Lindsay took it all off and let us feel completely comfortable so we could only just relaxed. We did the 3h tour... More

The horses were in great condition and are much loved. the ride itself took us across farmland before passing through blue gum and pine forests. Our trail then took us into indigenous forest where our guide led us to... More

What a beautifull ride along farms, pine forest and indigenous forest. Easy ride for first timers! More experienced riders will also enjoy it as you are allowed to gallop. Beautifully cared horses. Very enjoyable ride. Will remember this special day!

Oh it was fabulous! We did a 3 hour horse-back ride to the waterfalls. Even though it was our first time on horseback we had so much fun. Our tour-guide was the best ever, he made us feel at ease within 5 minutes. The horses were great they did not mind inexperience riders and took us where they wanted us... More
