I did the experienced ride today and it was great, it was only me and one guide. My horse was very nice and good to ride, the guide was very nice as well. It was also nice to see that the horses were well fed (only a few were too skinny) because usually the horses at trekking companies look like... More

A group of friends and I were extremely excited to be able to have the chance to take a ride along one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I was also looking forward to finally getting my fiancé up on a horse for the first time. Words can't describe how upsetting this actually was. We were picked up... More

We were lucky enough to be the only two riders booked for an afternoon ride and went along with Steve (the Manager) and two other staff who were all really lovely and happy to chat with us along the way. As we were experienced it was great that we were able to trot and canter in a few places including... More

Went on Saturday afternoon. Small group of 5 with 3 staff of inexperienced riders. A brilliant afternoon. Only trotted on beach but cantered back up the track for a short distance. Horses very docile, even lazy so all very safe. Highly recommended. Thanks guys

When our guide picked us up, she drove on the wrong side of the road into incoming traffic. She was young and had only been in the country a couple of weeks, so we felt bad for her, but it was hardly a good start to our experience. When we arrived at the stables, we were met by a group... More

It was a reasonably long drive from Port Douglas but well worth it for tour 20 year old daughter who just loves horses. It had to be booked 48 h before as the places appeared to fill fast in July. It comprised both rainforest and beach experience and there was adequate staff to cater for the different experience levels. Overall... More

My husband and I went to Cape Tribulation as part of our honeymoon adventure to Australia. We did the couples ride and were taken out by Sam. She was a wonderful guide and incredibly nice (but she's Canadian so I wouldn't expect anything less!). We're experienced riders so we got to canter. The beach and the rainforest were beautiful.
