Overview
More
A unique opportunity to learn more about the Friesian horse and the very strict studbook they belong to. Get up close and personal, find out what it's like to ride and/or drive one of these beautiful black horses, maybe even take one to the beach. Or, come and celebrate a special occasion with a horse drawn carriage ride round Cartmel or for your wedding. Riding suitable for experienced riders.

We booked a carriage ride though Cartmel village as a surprise for my dad's birthday. Unfortunately on the morning we were due to go - the heavens opened (not untypical for the Lake District) and we were worried that the rain wouldn't stop in time...More

I booked a 3 hour fell ride and it was an amazing experience. I rode Hannes who proved to be a steady, responsive and forward going. Ideal to experience something a little different and exciting.
