We need to introduce our kids to places like that so they can interact and experience the pleasure of riding a pony. Also by doing so, it will keep places like this open and the pony to be care for. Win Win?

Thank you for your review. We love ponies, children and the countryside and when you come to ride you help us, though our work and charitable giving, make a better life for more ponies - so Yes, Win Win!

Rosemary has created something straight out of a fairytale. From the tasteful bunting, blankets on haystacks, beyond cute ponies and polite staff - this place is what dreams are made of. My little girl had the most magical day. I could not recommend it more.
