I had such a lovely ride, i wish i could have been there all day!! Jane was a brilliant instructor, and she made me and my family feel welcome the whole time we were there (which was ages as we hung around for a chat). She catered for all the different experience levels so none of us missed out and... More

I took my friends to Jane Allum's riding establishment because India is only six years old and I knew from her reputation that Jane would look after her well, especially as she also holds a Pony Club meeting on a Saturday so the atmosphere there is completely natural. No snobbish attitudes, just a warm welcome and super riding. I have... More

I went for a ride here and had a wonderful time, I got equipped with a safety hat and then set off on a well trained beautiful horse called Inca. Jane, the owner, was enthusiastic and very experienced and helped me to feel confident. I rode through a river and past the lemon groves and also cantered up a hill!... More

I was convinced to go riding here with Jane after a long spell away from horses, following an unfortunate incident as a young teen, I thought I would never ride another horse. I really must say, hand on heart that Jane gave me the confidence to start again, from the basic's. With her at my side I felt safe on... More

Took my three daughters to go on a trail ride. Jane was very welcoming and reassuring. The horses were beautiful and very well trained and the kids had a fantastic time being accompanied through the Andalucian country side. Jane also explains how to care for the horses and is very educative in her approach. A special day out.

Having not ridden for years I was very nervous about getting back into the saddle, but Jane and my chosen horse instantly filled me with confidence, We went out over the hills and down to the river everything was perfect and the views were just amazing too. Would highly recommend a trek with Jane and Co, thanks again guys xxx
