We travelled here in the summer with our kids, and all loved it.
Riding every morning, different activity in the afternoon like rafting (tame), archery, clay pigeon shooting, or more riding if you fancied it.
After dinner games included volleyball, football, fire engine games, quick draw, horse training demonstration, lasooing. Also babyfoot, table tennis, pool table, so loads to do.
Sounds busy, but there was plenty of time to relax or hang out on your own too.
The kids swam every day (indoor pool) and we played tennis, and went quad biking (extra), but never got round to fishing or mountain biking (which was not guided).
Our riding ability was all levels but we were still able to ride togehter , or choose to go in a fast/slower group. Beautiful trails and countryside.
The only frustrating thing was for the experienced rider- not enough trotting/ cantering, and always having to adhere to single file.
Great accomodation in a family log cabin with adjoining door. Lots of characteristic old wood and cowboy decor. Noisy fridge in room which we had to unplug, but otherwise beautifully dark and quiet at night.
Food average- hearty ribs, bbq chicken etc and not enough fruit and veg.
Staff superlative- friendly, fun, informative,yet safety conscious.
Met a great bunch of people there - old/ young, with/ without kids- we all mucked in together.- though you can keep yourself to yourself if thats how you want to play it.
