The family did a ride here whilst we were on holiday and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were all excellent and the horses all seemed very good. My wife, who is an experienced rider, had no criticisms of the centre. Highly recommended!

Excellent riding school with outdoor and indoor arena, great instructors who have changed me from a novice to an intermediate rider in 6 months. In this time I have learnt to walk, trot, canter, jump and do dressage; overall an amazing experience.
