This was my 6th visit to Caeiago. Every time I go there it is with a feeling of homecoming. Lesley is perfect hostess and is always ready to greet one with a big smile and plenty of home cooked fare. Everyone looks forward to her meals which are traditional. People with special diets are also catered for. The rooms are all on the same pattern and are simple, functional and comfortable. The place goes from strength to strength. This time the lead riders were Charlie, Leslie's Father, who belies his years and seems indestructible. He thinks nothing of spending days on end in the saddle and getting off and on at times to open and shut gates. He also manages to cram in a number of other activities. Nina has been there for quite a time now and is cheerful, bubbly and always attentive. Lucy is fairly new but is equally helpful and cheerful. This means that rides are tailored to suit those on it with special attention being paid to those who might have strained a muscle or two. No-one ever feels left out. The two girls on the yard and in the house are excellent. Adrienn is from Hungary and loves working both inside and out. Sophie is English and is just great. The dogs, Bella and Dora, are a permanent fixture. They were given tow longish walks by us morning and evening and love going round. Bella enjoys a dip in the stream going after sticks. Boris is a new addition and was found as a stray. He is a lovely cat. Nina has been finding new ways of going to the various places. The Lake Ride is a bit special now has it is mainly off road and leads on through an enchanted forest.... We had many canters going there and back. The horses are well prepared and Lesley and Roddy make sure that each rider is given an appropriate mount. Some of the horses have been there for a long time but still retain a zest for life and are forward going. Younger ones are introduced each year but before the paying guests are allowed to ride them they are thoroughly sussed out by Nina, Lucy etc... The large barn is airy and comfortable for the horses so much so that they are very often to be found at full stretch lying down! I throughly recommend this place too and cannot wait to go back.
