“Fantastic for beginners and experienced riders”
Reviewed 23 September 2011

This was a really great way to spend the morning relaxing and enjoying the sights and sounds of the Daintree. Pru was an excellent instructor for my partner's first time on a horse. We even saw a couple of dingos who tried to take on Jackie the dog - who gallantly fought them off! All and all a grea exprience.

“Memorable holiday experience”
Reviewed 5 July 2010

During our holiday to Cape Tribulation, we spent an amazing afternoon horse riding at Cow Bay. Prue is a fantastic host- although neither of us had any real riding experience, she showed us how to ride and was really supportive, while also giving us the confidence and freedom to do some faster trotting. Her tours are really informative, taking us through some beautiful fan palm rainforest, and old growth forest. The tours are also really personal as Prue doesnt take more than three people at a time- and this really makes the horse riding a very special experience. And we cant forget the beautiful animals- the horses are gorgeous and gentle, and Jackie the dog is a real special character who comes along for the ride! If you're heading to Cape Tribulation, we strongly recommend Cow Bay Horse Rides as its a very special way of seeing the beautiful scenery. Thank you Prue! From Intan & Paddy

“Easy ride through the rainforest with informative host”
Reviewed 24 April 2010

Our ride was very enjoyable, our horses sweet and cooperative, and the scenary lovely. The proprietor Prue has put a lot of heart and soul into clearing trails through this property for riders' enjoyment - a back breaking task I'm sure. It was lovely to amble through while she shared details of the area, its significance, and pointed out special floral and fauna. On our particular ride, we also waded a bit with the horses in the river, which was fun. We also found Prue to have a very accessible personality, which made it easy to ask general questions about the country altogether, which is nice because getting a chance to chat with 'locals' when traveling doesn't always come easy but its a great way to learn about a place. At the end of the ride, we were rewarded with an (azure?) king fisher flying across an open field (outside of the rainforest area). Hurray! (we also enjoyed the company of Jackie, the loveable dog, during our ride :) )
