We had never ridden a horse before, but had a strange urge to ride through the forest and on the beach at Cape Tribulation. We were picked up on time by our excellent guide Sam, and taken to the stables to meet our horses (and the other riders). The horses were individually matched to us, and we set off at walking pace through the forest, across creeks, and to the beach. We were encouraged (but not forced) to try trotting and cantering on the beach - both of which are pretty exciting for new riders! Then we walked and cantered back through the forest to wrap up a lovely afternoon. We felt safe and secure the whole time, and could not have asked for more. Strongly recommended as a memorable activity in the Daintree.

Did the experienced ride which I loved but my daughter found her horse a bit strong, she can ride but clearly not well enough for these horses, which was completely my fault. I ride well and didn't find the horses difficult but if you are in any doubt as to your ability, maybe go on the beginner ride.

Lovely guide over from the UK, chatty and very enthusiastic horse lover. We really enjoyed it, thank you!

Our family of 4 including two teenage daughters did the afternoon ride with Lucy and Emma. We had a great ride and it is a unique opportunity to ride on the beach. We have minimal experience which was no problem as the horses were matched to ability and perhaps character. Lucy and Emma were very friendly and great guides. Thanks for a great experience.

Location beautiful, guide friendly but the horses felt like they didn't want to be there. The cantering was good fun however our guide not wearing a helmet which seemed like a bit of a OHS issue. The price seemed expensive although they are now one of the only horse riding places in the area.

What an Experience! Our guides were super friendly and handle their horses really well. It was such a relaxing morning and a great way to finish up our stay on the Daintree. What better way to see Cape Tribulation! For inexperienced riders, our Horses Alfie and Billy were very much suited to us, as these horses are well trained by their handlers. A single hand raise by our leader, and the horses knew to stop. These horses had a real character of their own. Billy preferred to make his own track and ride beside the slow paced Alfie who seemed to have a penchant for shoes, well Theo's shoes anyway. If you love animals and nature, this ride is for you.
