I cannot recommend Sheila and the Centre highly enough. Sheila accommodates everyone from beginner to riding-all-their-lives, and from Boltby there are some of the finest views in the country from setting out of the yard. The horses have great characters as well as being easy to ride, and even let you think you are in charge sometimes!! It refreshes you... More

I spent a blustery sunny day around Sutton Bank, Felixkirk and Kirkby Knowle on a lovely responsive foreword going horse in excellent company. The ride was well organised, the horses well matched with their riders and the pace varied. The pub lunch was much appreciated.

We really enjoyed our hour trek and was made so welcome even with having no experience with horse riding. We would recommend this to anyone and will be booking another trek very soon.

I love riding and chose this place based on their website and the views of the moors and I wasn't disappointed. I was given Seren to ride who did not disappoint and just kept going all day. Sue, the lead rider, was very knowledgeable of the area and pointed out interesting facts throughout the day. We stopped off at a... More

We did the mini break and extended it and so glad we did. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the... More
