We went on a 3 hour ride up the mountain but we were given 2 horses that were retired pacers(trotters) and like all pacers they are trained not to canter - and at 17.2 hands the pacer got the better of me - nearly wiping...

I went on the Moke lake trek which was absolutely stunning. The horses are so well looked after and very gentle and obedient. The ride was varied with river crossings, and the guides are very knowledgeable about the beautiful surroundings and wildlife. Many thanks to Valerie, Fleur and the girls for a very professional and fun experience And of course... More

I booked this from UK without knowing much about the company. However I had a fantastic time. They offered to collect me and drop me back to my hotel. They have a very good range of horses to cater of all levels of ability. I'm competent and was given the option to canter which was great. I did the longer... More

We had a wonderful time on the Gills Creek Trek. We were delayed a day due to unseasonal weather, and they were very accommodating and helpful in re-scheduling us. Our guide and the other staff were helpful, friendly and very approachable. The scenery in this area is amazing, whichever trek you go on. It is a beautiful, peaceful are tucked... More

We went on a private ride with Val. The views were so stunning. Horses were a great temperament you could tell these guys take good care of them. Now I did fall off the horse (no ones fault I slid off the side of saddle when attempting a trot) but even that didn't put a dampener on what was a... More

The place was a little difficult to find. But once we got there we were treated to very beautiful scenery and safety concious and professional guides who were particularly gifted at working with young children.

Thanks so much for your review, I'm so glad that your family enjoyed their experience with us. We do have the most wonderful guides and it is lovely to see them interacting with younger members of the family- you never know if a lifelong love of horses might come from one morning of trekking!
