Hella Horse Rental was wonderful. Small group made me feel safe. The horses were very sweet, and they made sure we had time for pictures too. I want to go back and ride again!

Really lovely ride in the countryside surrounding Hella. The Horses were great and the staff (Jo & Amelie) were really helpful. Both begginer and experienced rider had a good time.
