My husband and I did the 2 hour afternoon ride. I am an experienced rider/handler, since I was about 10. And my husband has ridden half a dozen times. We have ridden several times overseas and obviously on several different horses, dealt with different handlers/owners and seen their properties. We both agreed this was up there with our top horse...

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

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
