Couldn’t of been better in anyway!! It’s been a few months since I visited with my sister and mum to ride these amazing horses and I haven’t stopped thinking about it. I hope I get to return again one day. We based our whole trip around this experience and it was definitely worth it. I had the pleasure of riding Ben who was so much fun and I was able to canter him through some fields. Our ride leader was very friendly and made us feel at ease, she done a great job of matching us to the right horse so we all had an enjoyable ride. The same weekend we went paddle boarding, climbed a mountain and went kayaking and riding the horses was by far our favourite thing to do! Thank you soooooo much! I will return again one day!! Shannon :)

I cannot recommend Cumbrian Heavy Horses enough! My friend and I did the beach ride followed by a fell ride the next day and had such a lovely time! The horses are beautiful and well trained, and the staff were so friendly and supportive, even when I was a bit wimpy about going fast on the beach ride and needed some extra reassurance! The beach ride is amazing - cantering through the surf on these gorgeous horses is a memory that will be with me a lifetime! And it was nice to enjoy the views on the slower fell ride. Go, go, go!

I have ridden out twice in the last few days while staying here. Firstly taken out by Peter and then by Natalie. Both were friendly, informative and looked after everyone well. I was very lucky to ride Sol on both hacks, he is an amazing, kind and responsive horse who responds to what the rider asks and I’m very jealous of his owner ! Some amazing scenery and views while hacking and nice varied terrain. Thanks. 😊

Honestly the best place I have ever been to horse ride. I went on a farm ride with my friend. The horses are great and the staff are lovely. They really know how to give you the best experience. I will definitely be going back and doing the beach ride!!

Today was my first ever time on a horse!! At the start of the day I didn’t even know I was going on a horse because my girlfriend said she had booked us a surprise and also because she knew I wouldn’t go horse riding willingly!! So when I first arrived it was a bit of a shock and In all honesty I was bricking it! All the staff were so helpful and reassuring so, once I made them aware this was my first experience on a horse, they said they would help along every step of the way which they did! Before I knew it they kitted me out with all the gear and I got on the biggest horse I have ever seen in my life and what a feeling!! Across the next 2 hours I learned so much and I managed to get a good rising trot going which I didn’t even know what that was at the start of the day - but here we are!! During the farm ride, we saw some of the most epic views I think I have seen and the feeling of riding a horse up on the fells was truly exhilarating!! The whole time the staff looked out for me and taught me what I needed to do which was fantastic. Then we come to the horse, I felt like we bonded, me and sparky!! What a gorgeous horse he was kept at a great beginners pace and looked after me going down the hills slowly where I was nervous and you could see he was so careful with his footing, avoiding stones and bumps in the road - I had such an amazing day and can’t recommended it enough! So as an overall today was absolutely amazing and I hope anyone reading this whether it’s your first time on a horse like me or if you are experienced rider like my girlfriend you will go visit!! My girlfriend enjoyed it just as much as me if not more. Thank you so much for such an great experience and we will 100% be going back again when we visit the Lakes!
