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. The... More

We had never ridden a horse before, but had a strange urge to ride through the forest and on the beach at Cape Tribulation. We were picked up on time by our excellent guide Sam, and taken to the stables to meet our horses (and the other riders). The horses were individually matched to us, and we set off at... More

Did the experienced ride which I loved but my daughter found her horse a bit strong, she can ride but clearly not well enough for these horses, which was completely my fault. I ride well and didn't find the horses difficult but if you are in any doubt as to your ability, maybe go on the beginner ride. Lovely guide... More

Our family of 4 including two teenage daughters did the afternoon ride with Lucy and Emma. We had a great ride and it is a unique opportunity to ride on the beach. We have minimal experience which was no problem as the horses were matched to ability and perhaps character. Lucy and Emma were very friendly and great guides. Thanks... More

Location beautiful, guide friendly but the horses felt like they didn't want to be there. The cantering was good fun however our guide not wearing a helmet which seemed like a bit of a OHS issue. The price seemed expensive although they are now one of the only horse riding places in the area.
