Prepare yourself by listening to some Daryl Braithwaite... then enter tropical paradise! Cantering along the beach on the back of Big Thunder was such a hoot. Very relaxing and an enjoyable way to see Cape Trib. The horses were great, very tame and friendly and...More

We really enjoyed our horse ride. As city slickers with no riding experience, we were assigned very safe and well behaved horses who would probably behave the same way even with no rider at all. We rode through beautiful rainforest and along a lovely beach....More

I heard that cassowaries, crocodiles, jellyfishes and snakes are present on Cape Tribulation beach so is that safe for you to ride horses on that stretch of beach? Also would you ride horse in shallow water of the sea? Would you swim in shallow waters of the sea and let waves push you back to the beach?
