The owner was very pleasant and obliging. The premises are well organised and clean. They catered for a wide range of abilities and ages. The price was reasonable

Anna's ridden internationally. She's really friendly and the horse I rode was her ex-dressage horse who, apart from being beautiful, was the best trained horse I've ever ridden.
And Anna's mum insisted on getting the sun lounger out for my husband!
