“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Thought we were going trekking but turned out it was a riding lesson! However, staff very friendly and the horses were well cared for.

Dear reviewer,
Thank You for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your visit. I am pleased that you found our staff friendly, and the horses well cared for.
I am concerned that you found the content of the activity that you booked was not as you expected. At Arniss Equestrian we offer many activities, including taster sessions booked through Sandy Balls that comprise of a tour followed by an instructional mini lesson & ride; progressive lessons in the menages; instructional hacks on the forest for novice riders; & longer faster rides including pub rides for experienced riders.
I would welcome the opportunity to talk to you to find out more about what activity it was that you booked. Please do call me, or e-mail jan@arnissequestrian.co.uk

“Just what we went to the New Forest for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

My friend & I booked Arniss for the pony trekking in the New Forest experience & we were not let down! Despite arriving hours earlier than booked we were given a tour of the yard and then chipped in with the morning yard chores! This yard is immaculate & so well organised. All of the ponies/horses are so well looked after - it was an absolute pleasure to be there. We then set off with Angela on a great hours hack through absolute breathe taking scenary. Our horses were just great. William (my noble steed) was a very comfy & enjoyable ride - aiming to please me at every opportunity. We had some great canters along the moorland and a photo opportunity amongst a herd of ponies & cows. The whole experience for us horsey lovers was fabulous and I can assure anyone who is thinking of booking a ride here - you will not be let down!! Thank you Arniss for making us smile! We will definately be back for more riding. Look after William for me!

Dear reviewer,

I am so glad that you enjoyed your time with us at Arniss Equestrian last week. It was great to have the extra pairs of hands on the yard in the morning! The forest never ceases to amaze me with how beautiful yet how different it looks from one day to the next. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
