“Amazing fun!”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

My sister and I love riding and it has been a dream of ours to go back out on the beach and canter along the sands. At first we were skeptical; some trails can be real disappointments, but this was far from that. Smiles all the way through.
We had an amazing time. The horses were some of the best behaved I've ever ridden and were very sweet and beautiful. Our guide was engaging and fun to hang out with. We were lucky it was cool-ish day. Walk and canter alike were just as fun.
This experience could not have been any better. I will definitely be back to do it again!

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.
