Our trek took place whilst on a recent holiday to the Lake District. The only riding experience my granddaughter (aged 9) and I had was a trek 18 months ago at a different centre. We were keen to go riding again and Phoebe wanted to use the experience towards her Cubs Equestrian badge. I emailed the details of the badge... More

We booked for a 3 day 'Riding Holiday' 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The beach rides were fun, 30 minutes hack each way through the village and an hour on the beach. Groups are mixed ability and if you want to canter/gallop you get several opportunities but each one is limited to 50-100 metres for safety reasons. We were disappointed... More

Booked as a solo, experienced (but rusty) rider for a 90 min ride to the beach. At £40 I found it to be good value. Friendly, helpful girls. Great horses, all very well looked after with good tack. Loan hats, boots etc, all looked OK. They were thorough with checking own hats were to standard, and insurance paperwork completed etc.,... More

Had a lovely 2 hour beach ride here. The horses are well looked after and the girls leading the ride were very good. Had some great canters across the sand, after the beginner riders had gone ahead in walk. Beautiful scenery too.

We brought our 11 year old daughter here for her first ever beach trek and she had an absolutely wonderful time. We chose the 90 minute beach ride as although an experienced rider she has never galloped before and this was ideal. The staff looked after us so well and we felt more than happy to entrust her safety in... More

Very professional friendly staff. Lovely gentle but responsive horses. Fantastic galloping along the beach and up on to the fells. What more could you want? Loved every minute. We'll definitely be back!

My daughter and niece rode hear and really enjoyed it. All the horses are beautiful and lovely to ride. They loved the experience and a nice canter on the beach will definitely go back.

I visited Murthwaite green along with my husband, mum and sister. We booked for a 2 hour beach ride and loved every minute. The staff at the stables are all lovely and match your ability to your horse/pony. My steed, Basil is a very handsome cheeky chappy who is off to see the Queen next week apparently! Best of luck...

The highlight of our holiday. Lovely stables with lovely friendly ponies. Staff aren't bad either (lol) especially Emma who took our ride through the village if Silecroft and onto the beach for a trot and gallop. So glad we came. Highly recommended and worth travelling our of your way for.
