We took our four and six year old niece and nephew out on a very wet afternoon here for a pony trek. Despite one of them being extremely nervous and unsure beforehand they both had a fantastic experience on their ponies Dora and Lady!

Just back from an amazing beach ride. Horses were very well behaved and the staff very attentive with my friend and I. The views were simply stunning and the sun was shining. What an amazing experience.

Two of our sons (age 11 and 9) went on a short trek and loved it whilst others in the group went on a walk to the Flowerdale Waterfalls which starts at the same point. Both trekkers scored it 10/10. Enough said! Many thanks
