We took our 10 year old daughter for a beginners riding lesson today. Katie the lady who took us round was fabulous. The whole experience was amazing. I would really recommend if you are in the area to visit. Thankyou for a lovely experience.

Booked a 90-minute 'walk and trot hack'. We considered ourselves novice riders, and were therefore required to steer our mounts round the training ground first to prove we were in control, which we were - just! The ride itself was delightful. The ponies were very...More
