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.

Nice, friendly team to educate you on methods of horse riding. Even got the chance to trot. Bush walk is great for beginners and great on a sunny day.

Well suited horses that were matched to the right riders. As someone who hasn't ridden for years and was quite nervous, Amy had me cantering down the beach in no time. Also suited our more experienced daughter as well. We all had an absolute ball.
