The best thing about this mob is that they obviously love their horses and look after them like their own babies. Well done!!! One of the lead guides is a vet nurse and has worked with horses all her life. She was excellent with an eye focused on safety and another discrete eye on riding abilities. Although Canadian she knew... More

Nice horses, exceptional views, in the forest and on the beach. Small groups that allow instructors attention and teaching.

Best thing my friend and I have done in Australia so far! Neither of us know much about horses but these guys were brilliant at making you feel like a pro in no time! We went on two rides with them, and both were completely different. The guides know their areas, and can show you things along the way. On... More

Once you get past the very very bumpy ride to the stables, you can already see how well trained all the horses are. From there, your skill level is given a horse and you can ready yourself and get to know the horse. The trainers had excellent knowledge of even what order to line the horses up so to minimise...

I recently went on the experience ride at cape tribulation horse rides and it was fantastic. The horses are very well looked after and clearly loved by both the owner and the girls that work there. I had Bella, a beautiful, well behave thoroughbred full of energy and happy to be there. We walked through parts of the rainforest and... More

They were well treated & loved animals which made it a fantastic day. The guides were very personable & made the trek a great experience. I would... More

My friend and I did a morning ride in mid-September 2014. We booked in for a group ride, and were pleasantly surprised when it was just the two of us. The scenery was stunning and the morning views on the beach were stunning. We wish it had gone on longer! My friend had a fear of horses, but Amanda our... More
