“Amazing!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

My sister and I booked a 2 hour private ride along Noosa North Shore with Nikki. We used to own horses years ago, but both had not ridden in approx. 5 years. Our experience was acknowledged and instead of a boring/sluggish walk, we were able to canter along the beach and through the water.
The horses were gorgeous! Our mounts, "Jewel" and "Kiki" were both well behaved and well maintained. Not to mention our guide, Nikki, who was very friendly and easy to talk to (and even took photos for us while riding). It didn't feel like we were being 'guided' or 'watched' at all.
It was an amazing experience! I would definitely recommend Equathon to anyone, and if I didn't live so far away (Canberra), I would be back on a regular basis!

“Dream come true”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

We did a two hour private guided trail ride with just my husband, the trail guide and I. We walked, trotted and cantered along the beach on a gloriously sunny afternoon and the horses were stunning and quite well behaved (which is unusual for a trail ride horse). This was by far the best trail ride I have ever been on as it was a private ride which meant we could ride at whatever pace we wanted to. Additionally the trail guide was very experienced and helpful and listened to what we did and did not want to do. It had been a dream of mine to ride a horse on the beach, so thanks for helping make my dream come true. Note that I personally avoid trail rides unless they are private as things can become dangerous when riding in a pack, so I only did this ride because it was a private ride. Note that my husband was a total beginner whilst I was an experienced rider (albeit out of touch), however the ride was done such that both our needs were catered to and we both had a wonderful time. Well done to Equaton!!

“Best Christmas present ever”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

From the time we arrived Becky took great care of us. Becky explained what I needed to do, which was important for me as I'm only a second time horse rider. We had a great time and I would recommend Becky and Equathon to beginners and experienced riders.

We will be back.

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

My fiancee booked a horse ride along the beach at Noosa North shore as a birthday present and it was spectacular. The horses are very well looked after and happy. They were calm and patient and very sociable. We are both beginners and felt very comfortable and safe during our ride. We want to say a big thank to Alex for an unforgettable experience and couldn't recommend them highly enough :). We will definitely be back.
