We have been to these stables several times and the children have always loved their lessons. It is a well managed business set in a beautiful location and the cafe even makes a decent coffee while you are waiting. Highly recommended.

We are novice riders so stayed close by in the countryside to the riding school. I suggest contacting them direct. Happy riding!
