We went on a 2 hour hack in the hills during our family holiday. We are a family of 4 total novices and we felt very safe. The horses were very well behaved and we had a lovely day . Highly recommended. Even our teenager smiled !

Had a lovely chilled out ride with Tricia. Exactly what we were looking for - an opportunity for three of us who live miles from each other to go out for a hack together. The horses are very well looked after and relaxed. The whole experience was impressively organised around COVID restrictions.

Fantastic horse riding experience for total novices. Tricia was wonderful well worth a visit. Catered for a group of five superbly. Made us feel comfortable on the horse and even sized up our helmets correctly just by sight.

I recently stayed at Lunga with my 2 young children. Since I had booked (February) ,I have been trying to contact the stables for rides for my kids. I finally had 1 call back which the woman assured me it wouldn’t be a problem to go out riding when we were staying. Heard nothing back from the email she requested so when we were there, we decided to visit to make sure it was still alright to ride. “Oh, I’m not sure I have horses suitable for your kids” was the first blow. Not impressed after stating it wouldn’t be a problem.

Then, we were promised a ride next day if I lead the horse. That was fine. Turned up the next day at the agreed time and the woman who ran the stables- nowhere to be seen. I called her- no answer. We hung about for 25 mins and decided to go home with 2 extremely disappointed kids.

If the stables weren’t prepared to take the kids out for a lesson, why state it was fine and make arrangements?? It Was a very unfortunate end to our holiday and left being very angry about the whole situation. The stables aren’t obviously in need of custom or good reviews.

Really disappointed with having to write a negative review with them having so many positive ones! My boyfriend and I were SO excited about booking with the stables especially after finding out That they did western riding. We contacted on the Wednesday with reference to a ride out, we got a speedy response On the same day asking for heights and weights to which I replied, then nothing, never heard from them again, even after sending another email and calling numerous times. I really do appreciate that in this climate things are difficult and it’s changed a lot of people’s working lives but a quick message saying too busy or something would have been nice. We actually headed to the area and booked accommodation in hope of a reply just in case. But still nothing! Really gutted that we never got to go!

My 20 year old daughter and I spent a lovely week at Lunga and rode most days with Trisha. She and Erin took great care of us and we learned so much. We're both converts to Western riding and will definitely be returning in the future. The place is so beautiful and Trisha couldn't have been more knowledgeable and patient. Good company too.

Thank you to Patricia for organising a glorious evening ride through the Lunga estates on Paddy and Jura for myself and my daughter. The horses were so well trained and really knew their job. We were able to relax and enjoy the route and its spectacular views. Patricia was very welcoming and understanding. We enjoyed the chat and the opportunity to learn about riding western style.

We rang at short notice to see if they could fit us in, they were very accommodating.

Trisha took us out for a ride and taught us the basics, we are completely novices!

Trisha was a great teacher, and told us loads of really interesting stories along the way.
