Customer Reviews

The ride was excellent and catered very well for both my husband and I who are at different experience levels. I appreciated being able to have a canter at the end with my husband's horse being safely tethered at the time. The trail through fields and forest was interesting as was the information given by our guide. Would definitely recommend. - Clare Clerici

As novice riders my wife and I were put at ease by the professionalism of all the staff. The horses were we looked after and we were allocated ones to suit our ability. The instructors with us were most knowledgeable and ensured we were well looked after. The ride took us through forest and countryside with great views. We certainly had value for money and were out well in excess of the hour booked. The more competent riders went off ahead with another instructor to give them the best experience too. Would strongly recommend this amazing experience. Steve and Pam. - Stephen Fagg

Really really nice tour guide, great view and nice horses! We had a lot of fun. Thank you!! - Amelie Ege

What a great experience! The host and guides were so accommodating: we had several levels in our group and they satisfied each one! From the littlest kid who was safely led on a lead rope and shown how to trot, to the most advanced rider who craved a full speed gallop across an expanse! 10/10 would recommend. - Helen Aldrich

My daughter absolutely loved it. she is a horse rider. She had the guide to herself so she could do more than walk on the horse. All the staff were friendly. I would definitely do it again. - Sara Alpert
