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

The horses seemed to be well cared for. This is Not that common in peak season. They only take two rides out a day and at night the horses are free to roam free. The horses are ridden without a bit in their mouths so it doesn't feel like you're riding and causing pain. It shows the horses were relaxed... More

We confirmed weights, riding ability etc plus date time and duration. They agreed. We tried sms'ing to get the address and directions day before. On the day we drove towards Wilderness... More

It is interesting that our first bad review is by someone who has not even been to our farm, met our horses or done one of our rides. I did send you a message the following day to apologise for my mistake in messing up your booking. As I mentioned I was having terrible trouble with my phone and had... More
