Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Awesome day. My 11 year old daughter who had never been on a horse and myself who hasn't ridden since being a teenager could not speak highly enough of this experience. Sheila and her helpers were terrific. Very patient and helpful, the scenery was fantastic through the hinterland and considering how much other attractions around this part of the state can be this was great value. Sheila's quintesential no nonsense Australian character added to the experience. We will most certainly be back. Thank you for a great morning.

Exceptional morning riding with Sheila and the team. The scenery and tracks provided a stunning backdrop for an unforgettable adventure for our boys. Sheila is very experienced in her craft, and it shows as she coaches the riders during the morning.
Top class experience and highly recommend for all rider abilities. Exceeded our wildest expectations.
Also some wild kangaroos in the adjacent paddock was a great addition to the morning for the boys.

Amazing. Me and two small kids, inexperienced riders, what a great morning. Sheila and the team made us all feel confident and we loved the bush trail. Thanks for a great time.

My daughter and her friend 11&12 both went on a trail ride with Sheila for my daughter's birthday. They are beginners, and were shown how to hold the reins etc before they got near the horses. They were a bit scared and nervous, but when they arrived back from the trail, they were both galloping and loved every minute. They're so looking forward to going back again. It was fantastic.

Had a horse ride with Sheila this morning with our 5&7 yr olds. Sheila was wonderful and the horses where amazing. Loads of local kangaroos to spot. Very knowledgable, rustic and no nonsense experience.

We had a wonderful time with Sheila and her daughter. They chose the perfect horses for my husband and me and took us on trails our German dressage-horses would have refused to put a hoof on! We had tea and home-made cookies at a scenic creek and on the way home a nice gallopp.
Thanks a lot for this lovely experience and good conversations and horse-talk!

We recently enjoyed a half day (morning) ride with Sheila and a few other locals - it was the best trail ride experience we have ever had.
We met Sheila and a few locals that came along too, were introduced to our horses and headed off. The ride was never boring with so much to see and a real work out for the horses. Stopping for morning tea along a flowing creek was amazing and we felt so relaxed. Our horses suited our riding abilities and we simply had a wonderful time. We will definitely be back!

I have regularly done riding lessons with Sheila for the past few months, I live on the Atherton Tablelands.

It’s a pleasure doing lessons with Sheila & she regularly changes the lessons riding course to keep it interesting for us. It’s my ‘me’ time without the kids. Riding through the bush is soul cleansing & I’d much prefer to be in the bush learning than in an arena!

I would highly recommend for anyone visiting the Atherton Tablelands to do a trail ride with Sheila. She has horses to cater for all levels of rider. The bush setting through which you ride is lovely and there’s even some old war relics around the property you might spy on your ride.
