Wow! What an experience and we didn’t even ride any of the horses. Just watching our daughter and granddaughter have such an amazing time was worth the long journey and stay. Beautiful horses.

What a superb place. Extraordinary horses in a such a gorgeous farm setting. I did the farm and fell rides. Cantering across open fields and climbing to magnificent vantage points on those huge, beautiful horses. What a gift. I will definitely be back for more!
