One of my favourate activities. The horses are the stars of this show. They are well trained and absolutely bomb proof. I don't ride often and I felt confident from the get go. The forest is breathtaking. Rustic, laid back and thoroughly enjoyable.

Hi Jon D, Terribly sorry you thought it was a "dull ride". Bookings are made according to experience of riders for Safety reasons. As you mentioned, u are "not very experienced" thus you were accommodated as a "not very experienced" group. We do encourage trotting...More
