Have done a number of trail rides and this one was spectacular for the scenery, the river crossing and the wildlife. Sadly though the guide was a rather rude young man who yelled at and spoke to guests in an unnecessary way. He spoke to...More

Thank you Melanie for your review it is at times very hard to predict the weather here but glad you got a ride and enjoyed it. Jason is a gem and we are very glad he is with our team.

Thank you Gail for your wonderful review and we are so happy to hear your feedback.
We did the afternoon horse ride with our 9 and 10 year old boys.

Me and my husband stayed at the ranch on a camper van site. Was well located only a few kilometres from Kalbarri with beautiful surrounding scenery and incredible star viewing at night. The facilities (camp kitchen + bathrooms) were average and could do with updating....More

Thank you for your review and yes we understand about the facilities here which I can say are a work in progress. Out rides are advertised for a 9am start and we ask people to be here by 8.30am so don't know why you were...More
1:54 of walking. Trotting is not allowed because apparently it's bad for the horse's backs. No cantering at all. Don't know why. No stopping at all because that's bad for the horses too. And a very bossy guide. Pretty much everything was forbidden. 2x $125...More

So sorry your experience with us was not satisfactory and normally the canter track is done. If you rode with us over the school holidays we did have horses with saddle soreness and we were not letting them canter so I do understand the guide...More

We went as a family of 6, the youngest being 17 and the eldest 45. We all were signed...More

The morning trail ride was amazing. We started the trail at the ranch and then continued into the Bush. After we crossed some massive puddles and then crossed the river which was so much fun. After the river we went for a further ride and...More
