We were dubious about going horse trekking in Dartmoor in January and although the weather was as predicted, it didn't take away from the fun (especially with Harmony!) we had. Looking forward to returning for another outing.

Thank you for your review, sorry we could not stop the rain! Really look forward to taking you out in better weather for a more 'harmonious' ride!
