I took an afternoon horse ride with cape tribulation horse rides. The horse I had was called the duke. Having never done horse riding before, I can say they instructors make it very easy. They taught us how to control the horse by turning left and turning right and making the horse go and stop. We took a leisurely stroll... More

A horse-rider from a young age, I had to do a quick getaway from Melbourne to Cairns for the chance to ride with Cape Tribulation Horseride and doing the three hour drive up was totally worth it with the beautiful scenery along the way. The bonus was I got there and I was the only one doing the trek! Ruby... More

What an experience! The first time I've been on a horse. The ride was excellent and smooth. The instructors were very good and helpful. Very much hassle free! The experience was excellent, especially riding on the beach with the horses!

From start to finish this trip was such a great experience. There are a few horse trek trips available but not many that allow you to trek through rainforest and then go on to the beach and have a paddle in the ocean too !!! If you want something a bit different that will give you unique lasting memories then... More

The whole experience was amazing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. You don't need to know how to ride a horse at all to give this a go! You can go at your own pace or follow the group. The trip to the beach was a treat, with the horses entering the water as well! Definitely worth a go!

Horse riding at its best. Fabulous morning spent riding with these guys. So happy friendly and so love their work and the animals. Fabulous trek through fields, creek, and along the beach. Cater for all levels especially beginners although we did manage some trots and a cheeky canter. If your heading to cape trib you must see it on horseback... More

We decided to go horse riding after our sea kayak tour was cancelled and we are glad we did. It was a wonderful experience and our hosts were great. We felt safe the whole time and were able to trot, canter then gallop by choice. We even went right into the ocean with the horses after walking through the he... More

My family of 4 went on the ringing trip. It's not for experienced riders - a gentle walk through the forest and along the beach + a bit of a trot and canter if you fancy it. The location is amazing and our guide - Jenny - was really great

This is a "must" activity in the Cape Tribulation area with kids. They loved the independence, trust to get a trot or canter in, and diversity of beach, river and rainforest on their walk. The horses are in great condition and very trustworthy to ride. We had a memorable time!
