They helped us to feel at ease and taught us useful techniques that helped us and we were confidently trotting with their support. Beautiful horses... More

We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. We had a fantastic ride with some lovely people. It's great to have a place that can cater for all abilities. I'm a very competent rider and my boyfriend is a complete novice. Horses were lovely and in great condition. Will definitely be returning and thank you so... More

We had a wonderful weekend in the Lakes; took in a lesson and two beach rides over two days and had an amazing time. Found all the staff really helpful, the horses were well matched to our skill level and we couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I enjoyed a great ride on the beach, something I haven't done since I was a child. Beautiful scenery, a lovely horse - Pandora, and plenty of canters along the sands. Thanks to Emma for taking me and making it such a nice outing.

Just got back from the lakes after having the best 3hr beach ride ever. James and Laura led the ride and looked after us all perfectly making sure we ok and giving advice where needed. I got to ride the lovely Harry who was just a joy. The yard is small and we had a lovely friendly welcome. They are... More

Our trek took place whilst on a recent holiday to the Lake District. The only riding experience my granddaughter (aged 9) and I had was a trek 18 months ago at a different centre. We were keen to go riding again and Phoebe wanted to use the experience towards her Cubs Equestrian badge. I emailed the details of the badge... More

We booked for a 3 day 'Riding Holiday' 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The beach rides were fun, 30 minutes hack each way through the village and an hour on the beach. Groups are mixed ability and if you want to canter/gallop you get several opportunities but each one is limited to 50-100 metres for safety reasons. We were disappointed... More

Booked as a solo, experienced (but rusty) rider for a 90 min ride to the beach. At £40 I found it to be good value. Friendly, helpful girls. Great horses, all very well looked after with good tack. Loan hats, boots etc, all looked OK. They were thorough with checking own hats were to standard, and insurance paperwork completed etc.,... More

Had a lovely 2 hour beach ride here. The horses are well looked after and the girls leading the ride were very good. Had some great canters across the sand, after the beginner riders had gone ahead in walk. Beautiful scenery too.
