The cleanest, friendliest and most efficient stables I have been to. The staff were knowledgeable and competent making the family outing extremely enjoyable. For a reasonable price the care they gave was second to none. Highly recommended.

Really lovely stables and horses in fantastic condition and well behaved. Faye our leader was really helpful and a lovely person. Went for a trek through forest for an hour, would highly recommend for something different to do.

ello! My name is Monica and I will be staying at Groveside Farm on August 8th night (with my daughter and companion). On the 8th of August (after 3 pm) I wanted to try and organise a surprise for my seven year old daughter - Caterina - (who loves to horseback ride) and have her ride with you in the open (in the country side or even better on the beach, if this can be arranged. she would love that so much!). Cate has done many trekking tours and she has ridden ponies here i Italy for 3 years (she has lessons once a week) and is at an intermediate level. She walks, trots, canters and at the moment she is learning to gallop. If it is possible I would like to organise a trekking trip (1 or 2 hours) for her on the afternoon of August 8th (after lunch) or on the afternoon of the 9th (with other people too). Please let me know if this is possible and how much it would cost. In the meantime I thank you very much for your kind help, best regards, Monica Beneduci (from Rome, Italy) P.S. we will not have Cate's cap with us (since we are traveling from Rome, Italy). Do you have a cap we could use for Cate?
