Beautiful ride along the beach. It was a bit windy and cold and my horse wasn't too keen to go in the water so we just splashed on the edge. Bronte, our guide, was terrific. Nice relaxing, peaceful time with magnificent scenery. Highly recommended

Everyone there were very humble, I didn’t know what I signed up to as it was my very first time doing horse riding but within a couple of minutes I feel relaxed and at ease! It was great experience overall..! See you next time Cisco..!

We had Imogen as our instructor who was a really lovely and fun girl to have - whenever I have gone to other places the instructors have always seemed rude and stuck up so was really nice to have a mature talkative girl for once....More

I went on the beach ride with my mum and sister last month and we were pretty underwhelmed for the $90 price tag. The horses were quite well behaved and looked after though some looked a little on the thin side. You spend a good...More

My teenage daughters did the dune and beach ride. The horses were very reliable and safe. The group guide was a lovely young lady, very helpful. The overall experience was wonderful and I thought it very good value for money.

Came with two kids (8 and 4) and did the beginners ride. Although a little boring, it was a good introductory ride particularly for our youngest. Good honest fun and something different to do while in the area.
