Had an absolutely amazing ride - the views were incredible, the guide very kind, but most importantly was how happy and full of life the horses were. I will definitely be back on my next visit. Kirsty

It was a great place, you felt looked after by both people and the horses who were gentle and kind. You felt they really cared about their horses and you, and the beauty of the ride was spectacular
