A brilliant way to see some fantastic sights! My husband hadn’t been horse riding before, and was a bit nervous. He rode a Shire called Grace, who was very calm and relaxed. The staff were very friendly and service-minded. To be recommended!

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday to the Isles of Scilly and one of the highlights has to be our horseriding experience. Both my husband and I are complete novices at horseriding but decided we would like to try something new. We had...More

Thank you to Claire for fulfilling a wish I've had for many years to ride on a beach, and in the sea. The stables are very well run, with the horses in great condition. I love the fact that my husband, who cannot ride, was...More
