This was a great experience and one I highly recommend. My first impression was a tidy and clean yard and all of the ponies and horses I saw, looked healthy and well cared for. Great care was taken to ensure my girlfriend and I were provided with helmets that fitted well; they also provide jodhpur boots if needed. Not having ridden for several years we had booked a one hour private hack and were accompanied by Jo. Not only did we not ride on a single road, we did not see one either. Our ride started by fording a small stream and then went straight up some hills into the New Forest where the views were marvellous. Within minutes of leaving the yard we had left all signs of habitation behind. Virtually deserted, we saw just one dog walker, some D of E hikers and two runners ... and lots and lots of wild roaming New Forest ponies. Jo was an excellent and informative guide and set the hack to our standard, which today was walking and trotting. I think Arniss will suit riders of all levels. We certainly had a great time and look forward to returning soon.
