We were collected on time, taken to the stables and kitted out with a helmet and a horse. We were the only 2 on the trip, which was quite handy as I'd never ridden a horse before, and my horse knew that! He went where...More

Not sure they have. I got the recommendation by our hotel. It was really great. They have 2 tours a day if I'm not mistaken 9 and 1. But not sure about it. I would ask the hotel you are going to be staying at.
