Shockingly rude, Do NOT part with your money to give to these people. Management booked me on the wrong ride and they gave a showdown whereby they ordered me to get off the horse!! No alternative or apologies were provided. AVOID at all costs.

Me and my little brother went on a hack during the holidays, they were very helpful and understanding. However had to pay £2 for a hire helmet, kinda worth it though.
