We spent a very relaxing few hours riding on Rainbow Beach. Andrew and his riding experts looked after our group really well. From rank beginners to expert riders, everyone will enjoy their time at Rainbow Beach.

“Waited 28 years for this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

My wife has not stopped talking about this experience. She wanted to do this on our Honeymoon 28 years ago. tday finally she has done it, with my daughter and prospective daughter inlaw who had never been on a horse before. the girls loved it. Instruction from the guides was simple and precise. Horses were quiet and easy to control. The wife wants to come back and do a moonlight ride. Highly recommend this adventure to earn some brownie points. 10 out of 10.

“Rainbow Beach Horse ride - Australia Day 2014! Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

This is an absolute must-do experience. Riding a horse on Rainbow Beach is both exciting and exhilarating! I booked the ride for myself and my 11yr old daughter - neither of us had any experience of riding. However we felt safe, welcomed and relaxed. We also had great fun! Andrew and his team of lovely ladies are clearly very experienced riders that support all their guests throughout the ride. The team also take pictures of you during the ride and also stop for some shots in front of the sea - a nice touch! These pictures are available on Facebook to view and the team are happy to email you any favourites - at no charge! If you are thinking about this one then go ahead - you won't regret it!! Thank you Rainbow Beach Horse Rides - Can't wait to ride again in October.x

“Do yourself a favour and go on a horse ride at Rainbow Beach.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Our family of inexperienced riders absolutely loved this. This ride came recommended by one of the locals who I ran into over a coffee and they were right. The owners and guides have an enthusiasm and love for the horses. Andrew treated us a old friends and then proceeded to show us the commands. Right from the start this made us feel relaxed and at ease with ride. Then we met our horses who were always referred to by name and picked to suit the rider. We were advised that Charlie would take the photos. This made a welcome change as it allowed us to relax even more into the ride and not having to think about getting just the right photo. The horses are well trained and even to the inexperienced you can see that they are well looked after We firstly rode a short distance through the scrub to the beach and then had a glorious ride along the beach and even got to take our horses into the water. Our 10 year old was a bit nervous at the start so Nicole led her down to the beach until she was comfortable on the horse and then there was no stopping her.Along the ride Andrew, Nicole and Charlie were easy to chat to, knowledgeable about the area and the horses. If you are visiting Rainbow Beach then this is a must activity. The beach is so beautiful, the horses amazing and the owners/guides a pleasure to ride with.

Beautiful words Sue.

It was great to meet your family, who like us, enjoying "DOING". Your outlook on life and family was refreshing, which is what allows you enjoy the family unit that you do.

Thanks for coming for a ride and thanks for taking the time to complete a review.
Much appreciated. Andrew
