I am twelve and my sister is ten, we love horses and we were looking for somewhere to ride on our holiday. We were warmly welcomed with Mandy's kind greetings. She had helmets for every size head and safe equipment to use around her horses. With all her horses she had one for every ability rider. She could cater for anyone, from the most confident to someone who has never even seen a horse in their life. She made our riding experience the best we have ever had, we learned so much and would love to go back. I highly recommend going out to her ranch if you are in the Port Douglas region. Thank you for an amazing experience!

My wife and two boys (9 and 7) had a great time during their lesson with Mandy this afternoon. Boys had little experience riding before but felt extremely comfortable with their horses Star and Buck. They got an introduction to horsemanship and then moved on to practising rising trot. While the boys had their intro my wife got to ride on her own in the sand arena on lovely Beau. Later all three had great fun doing pony club style games. Such a wonderful experience. Highly recommend it for beginners and experienced riders alike. Fantastic teacher and great responsive horses. All the best to Mandy and her wonderful gang of horses. We’ll definitely be back if we are in the area again!

Mandy was recommended to me by a shop owner in Port Douglas and I am so pleased to say, she and her horses are true gems! I was visiting Australia for Springbreak and was lucky enough to get to spend several hours at Mandy’s beautiful farm. I have been riding most of my life but haven’t had the opportunity to ride in almost a year. Mandy was terrific and her horses are truly lovely! She taught me a dressage lesson and was patient, knowledgeable and excellent at helping me get myself “back in the saddle again!” My favorite day in Australia for sure! Thank you so much Mandy!!

Our 8 year old daughter was trotting and doing little jumps by the end of the hour and she's never even been near a horse before that session.She was on a high all day afterwards. Gentle horses. Most impressed with Mandy's instruction. Would do it again.

Our 7yr old daughter arrived with a smile and left with an even bigger one. Mandy gave her a 1hr private session and she definitely learnt a lot in that time. Mandy was kind and patient (infact so was her horse, Star)! If you visit, make sure you take a bunch of carrots as a thanks for the ride, your horse will be very grateful!!
