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

Took my mum here for her birthday. We had little riding experience compared to the others there but we were made very welcome and given suitable horses. We began with a scenic ride following the river estuary to the beach and then back through the sand-dunes and forest. The horses all had great temperaments and the owners (particularly Rob) we're...

Went on a 2 hour circular ride which crossed two rivers,followed the river down to a deserted beach & returned through the dunes. Has to be some of Wales best scenery. Was very impressed with the friendly helpful staff & well kept horses. As a novice rider I felt completely at ease & had a really great morning. Would certainly... More

As a regular rider, Riding on the beach is something I've wanted to do for a long time. The scenery was stunning, and overall I am really glad I got to experience it. However, the horses were very strong willed and took very little notice of the riders. I have ridden strong forward going horses before so am fairly confident... More

The horse I was given had only just come back from a2hr hack and looked exhausted. The saddle was like a brick. As an experienced rider I was looking forward to a canter along the beach. Once we had crossed a river there was a short hack to the beach where the ride was split into those who wanted a... More
