My Grandaughter and I had a fab time. She is only 6 so we could only do the paddock ride but it was excellent. First time on a horse for both of us but staff were so reassuring and helpful from the minute we arrived to the end of the ride. The girl on reception was very welcoming and friendly... More

Took my teenage daughter and her friends, all regular riders and they all really enjoyed their 2 hour hack. The staff and owner were so friendly, welcoming and helpful. The horses were great and well looked after. We will definitely come again and would highly recommend the centre.

Lisa told us about all her plans to develop the centre which sounds awesome. We'll definitely be back and we've already told family and friends that they can get us gift vouchers for Xmas. The team take great care... More

Very friendly staff and lovely horses to suit any ability. They spend time talking to you and choosing a horse for your ability. None of them are push-button riding school horses but some are more forward and others suit any ability. Most importantly the horses are well-cared for and loved and their welfare is the priority over and above anything... More
