Great introduction to horse riding! Absolute beginner, never been on a horse before. The guide Molly was patient and experienced in pointing out the sights along the way and ensuring it's a comfortable ride for both rider and horse!

Nice day out, really friendly instructors. Super handy pick up and drop off service. Little bummed to find out that other riders had found a deal on booking.com and I was paying full price though
