“Beautiful trail ride on lovely, safe horses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

I took my two daughters (age 8 and 6) to cow bay horse rides in August 2012. After speaking with Prue, the owner, about the girls comfort level with horses and what we were trying to achieve, she recommended a perfect option for us. For very good value my girls and I enjoyed a 1 1/2 hour guided trail ride through the rainforest. Pru ensured that we were all comfortable and safe. She described the different rainforest areas as we rode. What a lovely way to see the countryside! I would highly recommend this to both riders and non-riders.

“Fantastic for beginners and experienced riders”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

This was a really great way to spend the morning relaxing and enjoying the sights and sounds of the Daintree. Pru was an excellent instructor for my partner's first time on a horse. We even saw a couple of dingos who tried to take on Jackie the dog - who gallantly fought them off! All and all a grea exprience.

“Memorable holiday experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2010

During our holiday to Cape Tribulation, we spent an amazing afternoon horse riding at Cow Bay. Prue is a fantastic host- although neither of us had any real riding experience, she showed us how to ride and was really supportive, while also giving us the confidence and freedom to do some faster trotting. Her tours are really informative, taking us through some beautiful fan palm rainforest, and old growth forest. The tours are also really personal as Prue doesnt take more than three people at a time- and this really makes the horse riding a very special experience. And we cant forget the beautiful animals- the horses are gorgeous and gentle, and Jackie the dog is a real special character who comes along for the ride! If you're heading to Cape Tribulation, we strongly recommend Cow Bay Horse Rides as its a very special way of seeing the beautiful scenery. Thank you Prue! From Intan & Paddy
