We had a great trail run, seeing lots of native birds on the way with well behaved mounts. Jerry was very informative, teaching us about bush plants and their uses

Kelly's Ranch is a great place to horse ride, the horse was great and was a very good walker. Jerry was very nice and helpful with tips on horse riding for later in life. I am 10 and really loved my ride. Thanks Jerry.

Great and beautiful ride with Jerry ! We tasted bush bananas and bush coconuts. Jerry is a passionated man. Even if he looks shy, he loves share his knowledge about aboriginal culture and speak about his life. We'll never forgive this experience. Thanks Jerry !

We spent an informative 3+ hours with Jerry, learning about bush tucker, bush medicine and bush life. A humorous and gentle man, he opened our eyes to the region and it's indigenous people and culture. Don't pass Tennant Creek without meeting Jerry.
