Nice welcome, well organized, beautiful surroundings on 3 hour outing. Well behaved friendly horses incredible stable on rocky steep terrain with a nice gallop when possible. We started 8:30 because of the heat later on, which was very good. Thank you Jules and Julia! Willem

It was a sedate hack with mostly walking and the odd canter but the views were exceptional in the early evening light. Just go! I don't even like riding much and even so would thoroughly recommend it.

We went on a very laid back 6pm ride for 2 hours over the local hills and past a typical lavender field. Beautiful light and fantastic views from the hills over the countryside. Sensible but not knackered horses. Instructor speaks good English.
