This was my first trip with hoofin-about and it won't be my last! Had an amazing time, everyone was very friendly and the scenery was stunning! The horses themselves are sturdy and in the case of the horse I was paired up with, fast also! We did plenty of cantering and a cheeky gallop :-) It caters for all abilities so even if you've never ridden before its still great! All in all it was a fantastic experience and one I intend to have time and time again!

Ive been to hoofin-about two times with my mum&dad as they can ride aswell, one with george fearn&one without, the first one was more exhillerating because everyone could ride on that one so we got loads of canters, on the second one there were some people who had never rode before and whilst we still enjoyed ourself we only got around 4 or 5 canters&it was only my mum dad&I actually doing them. The views are stunning on whatever route you go&I know im going back again next year. If your thinking of booking a horse I would recomend Penny&Merlin, Thanks for reading

HI Thank you for your comments I have been taking people horse riding /pony-trekking from the midlands and many other parts of the world since 1969
At this centre they take you out in one group so therefore it is possible to end up with a lot of beginners with people also that are good riders in the same group
With people that come on the coach with me if you remember we have coloured elastic bands that fit on the persons riding hat this way I can distinguish the different abilities from riders to beginners
This way we make sure you get the right sort of horse/pony for you to walk-trot or canter and give you the best day possible
This year with the weather being so bad all riding establishments are feeling the pinch
And a bad winter I can see a lot of them closing down or thinning out the horses as the cost for feed and insurances keep rises so please we would love the have you and yes Merlin is still there for you to ride next time and thanks again for writing your experiences with hoofin-about horse riding holidays George Fearn (owner)
