I've been here twice this year, after 22 years away from riding due to losing my nerve. The staff are very friendly and helpful and both times I've been given a safe and steady horse to ride. Big thank you to Karen and Zeus for a great lesson today, really enjoyed it and got a lot of confidence back. Would... More

Have been visiting here since I was 9 years old, used to come every week but this stopped when I got my own horse at 13. However still visit here every so often as its only round the corner and it is still an enjoyable experience and is nice for me and my friends to go or together. Even now... More

Great place to ride out on the Chase. Girls always friendly and happy to help. Horses always lively and ready to go. Ben going for years on and off.

If you love horses and the great outdoors then you have to visit this establishment, something for all abilities from never sat on a horse before to seasoned equestrians, very knowledgeable and experienced staff for whom nothing is too much trouble makes everyone fell safe and relaxed, would not have a moments hesitation in recommending.

I had booked a 2 hour trek for a Christmas present for my other half. I was a bit nervous as it was a 2 hour session with a mixed group. Neither of us had ever been on a horse so wasn't really sure what to expect. All I can say was the trek was brilliant! A leisurely trek through... More

Brought this as a gift for my daughter. She went for her first 1 hour trek today. Everyone we met was absolutely lovely. She was fitted with the correct hat and matched to a lovely horse called Dolly. Off they went and she came back asking to go again. I'm really pleased. Can't fault the place or the staff. Lisa...

I am an older wannabe horse rider, and at last have the chance to try and learn. The staff match my ability to a very understanding horse and then off we went across Cannock chase. I really loved the ride with two experienced young girls who were great at giving you confidence and explaining what I needed to do without... More

Great first time trek. Lisa and her team matched everyone up with a suitable horse and they got it spot on. The whole team were really helpful giving hints and tips where needed. The horses are all really well looked after and their aim is for their clients to have a fun but safe day out. Would definitely go again.
