I was up on holidays and decided to try and fit some riding lessons in. Mandy was fantastic. I learnt more in 2 days than months of lessons in Melbourne. We need to book another holiday to Port Douglas so I can go back.

I took my niece Emma for a beginner session with Mandy and her patience and tips were great for my girl! She had a wonderful time and was able to gain more confidence quickly on the horse! Really recommended!
