A wonderful experience. Cantering along and almost empty Cape Trip Beach with the horses on the edge of the water was great.
Great ride. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Horses had personality and were well matched to riders. Through rainforest, streams and onto the beach. Brilliant!
Had a great day , we will come again when the weather is better
The horse ride was spectacular! As someone who had never ridden a horse until this experience, I found the horse easy to ride and control under the helpful guidance of the guides. The scenery was just amazing!
Experienced, friendly guides make it a really great way to see the area and a really pleasant ride.
What a great day and a great experience. Thoroughly enjoyed it ! Thank you !!
