Thank you for a most enjoyable day out riding today, you guys have done a job well done training your horses to be so well behaved, they were a pleasure to ride! Even the weather behaved itself by turning on the sunshine, when I neared the Bay it was raining. Kind Regards & thanks again!..

Tanyka and I just wanted to say that we had such a wonderful day with you guys. Even though we were both beginner riders, you made us feel at ease as did your horses who were very well mannered. We had an enjoyable day, in a glorious setting with the best, most hospitable people and also great food. We are already starting to plan our next holiday and guess where we are going……back to your place and we plan to stay. We can’t wait. Thank you so much.

Oh Karen and Wayne, What a fabulous weekend, you and Forest are the absolute best hosts.
The FOOD, RIDING, ACCOMMODATION, all first class, thank you so much.
The moonlight ride was really great, a bit scary in the beginning for old scardey pants me but I loved it and didn’t even see the bridge. We will rave about this forever.
Lorraine & Graham



Thank you again for this wonderful experience we all had on the trail ride.
It was great that the kids had the opportunity to ride such well trained horses.
They were very excited and asked if we could do a full day ride next. So we may come back..
Have a great time and we all sending our love. Cheers from Andy, Craig, Georgia and Erin



Hi Karen and forest,
Just a quick note to say a huge thank you for our horse riding experience yesterday, we all had such an amazing time and it was down to you both and your beautiful horses!! We are all a little sore today but all agree it was well worth it!!
Thanks again and will be recommending you to my friends!!
Will see you again! Kirstie, Eileen & Barry X



Hi Karen and Wayne
Just a quick message to let you know how Rocky is coming along.
He is a pleasure to own and such a darling also a very safe horse as last weekend we were chasing cattle through scrub country and he hit a fence, stopping dead in his tracks. I got off on the off side as there was a lantana bush on the near side. He had his two front feet over the bottom barb and did not move. I put my foot on the wire and lifted each foot over the wire and he didn’t even get a scratch.
I am running him in the barrels at the Goomeri New Years rodeo this year as he is going that well.
Thank you for bring this little horse into my life I just love him, I will send you so pics of him.
Leighann and Kingsley. Wondai



Hi Karen,

Just a quick hello and a big thank you for such a beautiful horse that you have breed ,  He is getting very spoiled here in a good way with love not over feeding, his paddock is beautiful and green with lots of shady trees and he is getting triple mix chaff and pony pellets. I have caught him without food and once tied I give him a handful of pellets he is such a gentleman I only have to tap his hoof now and he gives it straight away. Andre my husband even said the other day that he wants to have a ride which is HUGE . He has won everyone’s hearts here.
Kind regards



Hi Karen,
Just giving you an update – Laura and Snoopy has had a great week. We have discovered the trail rides you were talking about, the tracks are FANTASTIC! We would never have known they were there if you had not mentioned it to us – so thankyou!!! Snoopy has been around the streets and the block several times now. He was a bit hesitant with mail boxes and driveways/drains the first time, but he was much better the 2nd and 3rd times. you will be very surprised when you see Laura & Snoopy together – they make a very good team. Laura has come along in leaps and bounds and looks so comfortable and relaxed riding Snoopy now. We are all very happy. Laura cantered for the first time last Friday and now we can stop her from cantering!!! She has even been cantering along the front of our street.
Snoopy was very responsive to Laura going around all the obstacles as he turned effortlessly each time with Laura’s commands. They are both going extremely well.
