I am an experienced rider who hasn't ridden for a few years. My friend who I rode with is the same. I wasn't sure how fit I was to be able to ride, all the doubts about whether i could still do it, those sort of thoughts were going around in my head. I decided to start with a 1... More

I had a lovely day, riding on the full day hack. The horses and the staff were great, the stables were in wonderful condition and the stable owner was one of the loveliest women I've met. We went for a pub meal mid ride that hit the spot and enjoyed a fab ride. Thanks for a wonderful finish top my... More
