They are beautifully friendly and humane to the horses. They put smiles on children's faces and they are there when you have nothing else to turn to. I will always remember my favourite horse from many years ago and many years riding there. She was a dream come true. Stella was a favourite in my heart and soul.

I decided I would also take lessons with her, with neither of us having ridden horses before, I found the staff very accommodating, polite, and extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I have... More
