We rode 2 lovely horses through some of my favourite bits of the woods. Having not ridden for a while it was nice to stick to a gentle trot now and again. The staff were friendly and accommodating but also mindful of safety. Some have said they're unfriendly but I disagree, I found them quite vigilant which I appreciate. All... More

I am a horse owner myself so to say I was disappointed with this experience is an understatement. The people running this show seemed bored and fed up. They showed little interest in us other than getting their money. The person guiding the actual ride didn't speak to us at all. The horses were a motley assortment and the atmosphere... More

My grand children who are aged 4 and 5 loved it. One had never been on a horse before but was looked after wonderfully and was given a pony to ride. The only problem we had was getting the little ones to leave.

My daughter went to this school for a couple of months on her pony and hated every second. She found that the teachers were too aggressive in their voices and would often come home complaining of the lesson and I was paying for to come out with a smile on her face! Not to mention that her friend was put... More

This site is currently being redeveloped as 3 houses. I am surprised to be asked to review it. You need to update your website.

My friend and I rang up the business to organise an hour hack, payment was made by card over the phone and off we went to the stables the next day. We walked over half a mile due to lack of a car, got to the location of the stables to find it had been knocked down and was just... More

I live near to this site and passed it daily. The standard of hygiene seemed to be very poor and the leaders of the rides were very rude on the road. The stables have now closed and a local builder has bought the site and is building houses there.

Monosyllabic teenagers running the show. Despite being promised one walker for each child, this was not the case. Our third child was separated from the rest of her family, by Emily who spent virtually the entire time on her mobile phone, hardly fun for a nine year old. The hack was mostly walking past allotments - with all that glorious... More
