First time horse riding and enjoyed every minute of the two hour trip. Staff were friendly and my horse "Larry" was fantastic and was nice and calm for my first ride. Only criticism but still rated "excellent" is at the start of the ride there was no real instructions, but maybe it is common sense..

I took my daughter and her two friends on the hour long ride. The staff were friendly and very helpful. They really looked after the girls and even though there were a few nerves to start with, all three ended up having a fantastic time. I was really happy with the whole experience.
