Fantastic to days with the people and horses at Cumbrian Heavy Horses. Day one was a 2 hour tour of the farm and surrounding area, great staff and lovely horses. Day two was a half day trotting through the valley and cantering through the fields. I would recommend Cumbrian Heavy Horses to anyone who loves horses, just like my girl... More

I don't ride any more but love being around these big guys. Gentle giants and so well cared for. We first met them during their "Migration" from Skye to Cumbria. Annie and gang work so hard to keep them tip-top and everything right at the stables. I treasure the painted horseshoe I have from them. Big 'boots' and hearts.

I booked a novice ride for my husband. They were wonderful. Great with him and me, teaching us both new skills and the scenery was... More

We phoned the week before Christmas and despite the fact that they were moving premises and packing... More

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
