Crystal Cascades Horse Park


Welcome to Crystal Cascades Horse Park

Crystal Cascades Horse Park  (CCHP) is located at Redlynch in Cairns. We are only 15 minutes drive from the Cairns CBD and Northern Beaches.

CCHP opened in December 2007 and is the only riding school in the Cairns area. CCHP is a fully integrated equestrian facility and offers:

  • Riding Lessons
  • Pony Rides
  • School Holiday Programs, Competitions and Clinics     
  • Equine Assisted Therapy Programs
  • Agistment
  • Part-Time Horse Leases

CCHP provides the opportunity for families and individuals to experience the joy of horses (some for the first time). CCHP conducts its lessons in the 70 x30m covered arena which means the weather is never a problem. We have 25 quiet, well schooled ponies and horses suitable for all age groups and ability levels and an extensive program of riding school lessons for children and adults.

Horse riding is a fantastic activity for all the family to be involved in. It is fun, great exercise and teaches respect, discipline and responsibility.

Horse riding is also a great way to improve your fitness and general well-being. Horse-riding offers a great workout for both your mind and body, giving your cardiovascular system a boost as well as easing stresses on your mind.

Furthermore, developing a relationship and sense of trust between yourself and your horses is highly rewarding. Also, learning to influence an animal that is so much larger than yourself does wonders to boost your self-confidence.

We look forward to seeing you at Crystal Cascades Horse Park soon!
