About
We offer a unique and amazing experience with a variety of different horse ride adventures to choose from. Our beach ride is very popular, as it is set in one on the most beautiful beaches you will ever visit, pristine sands with crystal clear waters and brilliant blue skies. Rainbow Beach is called Australia’s Nature Coast and it is easy to see why. The bush land, native animals and coloured sands is why Rainbow Beach is often listed in travel guides as a must visit for anyone going to QLD. We are proud to show you the area in the best possible way. Our gentle horses are fun loving, sweet natured and always happy to meet new people. Our rides include, beach rides, swimming rides, yes, we take both you and the horse into the water they love it and so do our guests. We also have full moon rides, multi day rides and country rides. Andrew McCarthy owns a beautiful piece of land at Goomboorian, which is located half way between Gympie and Rainbow Beach. He offers a scenic ride through lush green hills, natural waterholes and spectacular views of this area. The native animals are accustomed to his presence so they are not shy and often come out to view the visitors. We also offer personalised rides for special occasions. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings or any special event you would like to make a truly memorable one. We have witnessed many marriage proposals and been privileged to be part of numerous weddings. Picnics on the beach are popular in autumn and winter when the water maybe too cool for a swim. Whatever you have in mind we will work with you to make it happen. Rainbow Beach Horse Rides cater for all levels of riding abilities from absolute beginners through to experienced riders. We take photos on every ride, which are available to all guests free of charge at the end of the ride. Age and Weight Guidelines - For the safety of our horses and customers we follow the industry standard of a 95kg weight limit and an age limit of 10 years and over. For those under 10 without extensive riding experience, we can arrange private or led rides to cater to the individual’s needs. Location: Rainbow Beach is approximately 3 hours north of Brisbane and 90 minutes north of the Sunshine Coast. The closet airport is Sunshine Coast or if you are flying international then Brisbane. A shuttle service is available from both airports to Rainbow Beach. Rainbow Beach has an abundance of accommodation to suit every style and budget. From backpackers through to 5 Star Resorts and self-contained beach houses. We are happy to recommend places according to your needs. Andrew and the team would love you to join us for a spectacular riding experience. We are here to help with any questions you may have and believe in giving personal service, so please feel free to contact us.

Rainbow Beach, Bush and Cattle Ride, simply amazing!
Jul. 2021 • Solo
I arrived to absolute paradise and throughly enjoyed my 5 day experience! Every little detail had been thought of and guest comfort was of priority. Andrew and his staff were fantastic, down-to-earth, a lot of fun, and highly educational regarding the local area, and everything to do with riding. The group I was with, were an absolute hoot but the heroes of the ride were the horses. My gelding, Teddy, is fantastically trained with a mouth like butter, and was super responsive. He was safe and surefooted whilst also having plenty of get up and go. He was a little quirky and super loveable and cuddly. I loved riding him so much that I wanted to bring him home with me! The horse welfare is the highest priority and that was so easy to see with the passion that both the staff and horses displayed. There was a great variety of riding in a short space of time. Teddy absolutely loved the beach and cantering down one of the prettiest beaches then swimming bare back can not be described. It was amazing! The food by Chef Dan was spectacular and individual catering needs were of no issue. I really can not put into words how incredible this experience was and I can not recommend it enough!

Once in a lifetime experience.
We did the full moon beach ride and wow what a once in a lifetime experience! Yes we were very lucky with perfect weather for the evening but it was the friendly staff and flawless organisation prior to and on the day of the ride that completed this experience. Andrew is the owner of the business and he came along for the ride and it was easy to see his passion for his business, staff and horses. All the staff were amazing but a special mention to Georgia who not only gave really easy to understand instructions on how to ride for beginners like us but also took the time to chat with us during the ride and made us feel so comfortable.

The ride itself was so much better than we could have imagined. Riding along a peaceful pristine beach listening to the waves as the sun went down followed by a full moon rising from the ocean was just so unforgettable!

We would do this again in a heartbeat!

Thank you so much for this unforgettable experience!

We had an amazing time today at RBHS and would really like to thank the staff involved. Jacqui, who helped me with the booking and whom I spoke to on the phone, was extremely helpful when I told her that we were stuck in traffic on the way to the stables. She quickly contacted the team that was on and notified them of our delay. Due to her great communication, we just made it in time to join the horse ride.

Once there, we were greeted by Andrew and Georgia. I was anxious since I have not had any experience whatsoever with horseriding. However, Andrew's instructions were clear and I knew what to do after he repeated it a couple of times. Flint was my horse and he was an absolute beauty. You could tell all horses were looked after well. I loved how they took photos for us as well and transferred them to us at the end. Georgia was a pleasure to chat to. Everyone was so friendly. It was a perfect experience for a beginner and I honestly loved it! I would recommend it to anyone looking for an enjoyable time out on the beach. 10/10

Worst memory for my 50th.
Apr. 2021 • Couples
Manager called me after I had told his employee that on their booking confirmation my opinon they should change the wording when they say that they generally ride in any weather condition unless unsafe to do so when they cancelled because the forecast is rain. His employee was upset but it is OK for him to call me and abuse me on my birthday for them not liking my opinion or upsetting his worker because she felt responsible that I wasn't happy. When I had told her I personally think she is a nice person and it is not her fault this happened. I had been refunded and had nothing to bad to say about the business. Now that I received this phone call from manager abusing me when he had not even listened to my conversation. Hope to never hear from them again

Jan. 2021 • Family
We had a such a great time on our morning horse ride. I was so nervous as a beginner but Andrew was very thorough and puts safety first.Andrew makes sure everyone is comfortable, gives thorough and clear instructions and matched us all perfectly to our horses based on experience. My nerves soon went away knowing I was in great hands and I enjoyed the ride. It was such a beautiful morning that we will never forget. Andrew and all the staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and took great care of our group. We had so much fun and highly recommend Rainbow Beach horse Rides.

We will return again one day. Thanks again to everyone at Rainbow Beach Horse Rides. You all made us feel so welcomed & safe at all times. We had the best time.We will be back!

Fabulous Experience
Oct. 2020
We are in-experienced riders, but looking forward to the ride along the beach. It was the most fabulous experience we have had for a long time. The staff were confident and reassuring, which made us very relaxed and comfortable. The horses are in very good condition and very calm. It truly was a fantastic experience. I’m not scared of horses any more. Well worth every cent.
