The staff were knowledgable and friendly. Although we did find it a shade expensive we found that for a bucket list item it was worth it. The horses are calm and beautiful. We had a great experience.

The Staff were excellent, horses amazing they allowed you to do some fantastic tricks with them. My sun was able to Horse surf with his, but the weather was way too cold (the reason for not getting 5 out of 5).
