For anyone who loves riding and the open spaces of the beach, this is a fabulous experience. You would need to be a competent rider as the horses are well schooled but certainly not plodders. We had a wonderful gallop along the beach. I also...More

Tracey is the ultimate professional, as evidenced by her gentle and spectacular horses. I had tears in my eyes, as I'd never been up close to Friesians, and no horses are this magnificent. Tracey is an artist at training her animals; they all have perfect...More
