My mum, boyfriends step-mum and I did a half day fell ride at the end of October and thoroughly enjoyed it! We had previously spoken to the owner, Annie on the phone and she noted what we were capable off and gave us a rough guide as to what we were (Beginner/intermediate advanced) etc. Upon arrival, we then were greeted...

Me & a friend did a half day beach ride for my hen do. We are both competent riders having our own horses, but were still subject to a thorough questionnaire to ensure the horses selected were 110% suitable for us. The attention to detail of personal requirements was admirable, & Annie made us feel like part of the team,... More

The first day I went out paired up with a lovely horse called BamBam for a half day fell ride. The terrain was demanding but the horses proved their fitness and willingness to reach the hop of the fell. The views from the top are amazing. We were able to see Blackpool tower. The horses were equally as careful making... More

Rode out for 2hours yesterday 05/10/2014, ride led by Holly who was super friendly. I rode Jake who was a complete sweetheart, really enjoyed his work. My other half hasn't been on a horse for 30years & he was very suitably paired with Dingle who was perfect for him. Holly made sure as a more experienced rider I could do... More

And I have ridden all sorts of horses on all sorts of terrain all over the country but these guys do it as well as anywhere I have ever been. They'll quiz you hard about your ability and check that you are as good - or as bad as you say you are, but tell the truth they'll match you... More

My husband and I had a very enjoyable 2 hour farm ride whilst holidaying in the Lakes recently. This was our 3rd visit to CHH (first time we rode here Hubby hadn't been on a horse before!). The ride was lead by a very friendly and professional 'Holly' who ensured we were all safe and happy throughout the ride on... More
