We had an excellent ride today albeit it in torrential rain! Think it's says a lot that we still enjoyed ourselves! We were very dubious turning up as we were all quite experienced riders and were worried we would be put on 'go slow' horses however this was not the case at all! My horse dotty was great, not sharp... More

I have always wanted to ride at the beach but unfortunately never got around to it until today! I had an excellent time despite the horrific weather. The horse I rode clearly LOVED his job and was a really lovely little horse. The route the trek takes is really beautiful, and the horses were all so well behaved when it... More

There was no introduction to health&safety or even how to control your horse(not that they listened) whilst out on the trek! We were left to just stand around when we first got there so we thought we would get some hats so we were ready to go but whilst doing this we got a sarcastic comment from a lady that... More

I recently returned from a 2 hour trek with my husband, daughter and her partner. I had a few lessons over 20 years ago and haven't ridden since, so I was quite nervous and was quite happy to be led on my trek. We were given no instructions on how to hold reins or how tight or loose to hold... More

It was more than we could have wished for crossing the river on horseback then down to the beach.a good long fast... More

Visited today with my friend and our daughters. Girls went on the 2hr trek at 10.30am. Horses they rode were Winston & Midnight. They went to the beach, over the sand dunes & through rivers. Had a thoroughly fantastic time. Friendly staff. They can't wait to go again!

I went to Ogmore Farm on a recommendation from a horsey friend when staying with family locally. I had a fantastic ride including very long canters and gallops and the scenery was breathtaking. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that I saw a couple of things that made me feel quite sorry for the horses. But everyone... More

The horses were lovely and the ride was great, going through deep rivers, across heath, along the beach and then through woodland. Never a moment to get bored or feel your sore bum as there is so much of interest to see as well as riding! Great experience for someone will very little riding experience or more as the group...

We had a brilliant experience with some fantastic people. A couple of us had ridden before and wanted to be able to ride along a beach. Our daughter who had very little experience also enjoyed it, being lead by one of the instructors. I would highly recommend this trip regardless of your riding experience. The people were very helpful and... More

Ok, I have seen some negative reviews so as a rider I wanted to go and try this place out and see if it was good, bad or indifferent. We arrived and had some lunch directly opposite which was nice. We were welcomed and asked if we wanted body protectors, we had our own but that impressed me as I... More
