 Highly recommend 👌

Took my 7 year old & 3 year old for the todder/kid session and it was a fantastic experience! I was worried my kids would be nervous as they’ve never been horseriding before but the ponies were so calm the kids jumped straight on and had a ball! Lovely staff and arena. We also got to pet the many horses in the stalls. Really magical memories made ✨️

This is one of the most friendly stables I have been too. Its relaxed , friendly, homely and so welcoming . we had a mini lesson before a trek and after there was no rush to get us away , we were allowed to groom the horses , see the other horses and ponies in the stables and spend as much time as we needed . The staff are so attentive, patient, non judgemental and know when to laugh with you and not at you … all in all we had a magical time and would highly recommend it …
