Six of the riders were thrown, including all of my family. My granddaughter sustained a fractured humerus, my grandson was bruised and shaken, my daughter-in-law suffered severe muscular... More

We went on an hour treck during May half term. We are a family with 11 yr old and 8 yr old that have never been on a pony before. Both the staff and ponies were very friendly! It was such a lovely introduction to riding with beautiful views of Coniston lake. Would recommend.

Kids have asked for a horse ride so we got to this lovely farm on the lakes. The staff are very friendly and told us many local stories through the trip, which made it even better. We called to order and payment is in cash

We visited Spoon Hall in the easter break having driven past the sign loads of times on the way into coniston. The farm is family run and everyone was so nice and friendly and spent a lot of time reassuring our children. We went for the 1 hour tre which was more than enough for us, as we all had... More

The horses were a pleasure to ride, very happy and calm, which was reassuring as all... More

I took my two nine year olds who have some experience of riding here whilst on holiday in the Lakes and it was amazing. The staff were very friendly and very safety conscious and the ponies were very well behaved. The trek didn't start until everyone was safely saddled up and then we were on our way. We enjoyed amazing... More

The four of us booked for a beginners one hour hack. All the horses were immaculate and very healthy. The route was amazing with stunning views up near the peaks. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
