  • I booked my 13 year old daughter and I onto one of the 1.5 hour hacks for the most experienced rider. The staff were so hard at work tacking up and matching riders to the most appropriate horses for them and I have to say they did a very good job. I was lucky enough to ride 'Tina', a lovely big bay mare. My daughter rode a fabulous skewbald pony with wall eyes. Both of our horses were spirited enough for us which was very welcome and suited us well. All of the horses looked very well cared for. The slighter breeds were carrying as much condition as possible considering how dry the weather has been with no grass. I got a glimpse into their well stocked feed room with lots of prepared feeds so they are trying their best. The ride was a touch slow for us but we completely understand that they have to tailor it to a whole group and I think they did that well. I would love to go back with a smaller group that had an ability assessment beforehand. Overall, as a riding instructor myself I was very impressed with their service and how well the horses looked. I left a tip for the te which they seemed to appreciate but maybe weren't used to.
  • Great value, great staff
