We loved it - we did the 1 hour guided tour. We have horses of our own - so it was a real treat. Our guide was well informed and easy to follow.

Third visit here over 20 years each time it’s been a little different, a super place to visit if you know a lot or a little! Good English spoken and the video to watch beforehand is subtitled too, go early 20/30mins to watch it.

Really interesting tour. Watch out for the English speaking tour times. You get up and personal with the stabled horses and watched riders training their beautiful mounts.
