“King Island Trail Rides a magic beach experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We were on King Island for yet another trip when we decided to trade doing the walking ourselves for the energy and enthusiasm of some really great horses. My motorbiking other half finally saw the advantage of horses in the natural environment as we tackled narrow tracks, really soft sand and rolling waves along a majectic and stunning piece of coastland. As with all King Island activities, we reaped the benefit of the quiet winter season and had the undivided attention of our great guides Michael and Liz as we were only a group of four. We took the more adventurous three hour ride, for which you needed some measure of experience, but we were well supervised, supported and the horses were absolutely lovely. The ride included the opportunity for a bit of speed for those up to it! The saddles and riding equipment were great quality, and the tack shed was a work of art in organisation. Highly recommended.

“So much fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

These people really love their horses and care about you and how you ride! I had never ridden before and I was more than a little trepidatious, however I felt completely safe in their hands. The ride itself is so beautiful and for higher levels of rider there are options to enjoy the wilder (read - more than a walk!) side of horses! You will love this experience.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

This was an excellent way to while away a few hours and see some of the lesser visited spots on King Island. Mick and Eliza were fantastic hosts who made us all feel welcome and safe. I've not been on a horse for 35 odd years whereas two of the others on the same ride were very experienced. They also helped my eleven year old niece to overcome her nerves and left her feeling safe and secure. We only did the short trip but next time we're hoping to go a bit further and spend more time on the well chosen horses.
Mick's also planning to do some overnight trips which will cover most of the east coast and will really be an experience to write home about.
100 % recommended with no hesitation.
