Enjoyed a lovely farm ride today on the supremely comfortable Zac. As before (previous visit a year ago) all safety aspects were explained and everyone given a horse to match their ability. Weather was pretty bad but it didn't spoil it for me. We were...More

Beautiful well cared for horses. Great surroundings. Knowledgeable staff who love the animals. Really enjoyed the experience. I'm an experienced rider but the rides are tailored to suit all levels of experience. Thoroughly recommended.

Not much to say but wow. I didn't ride on the horses but friends did and it was such an amazing sight seeing these fabulously huge horses galloping along the beach. I'm told it was money very well spent . And well supervised .

i think the farm ride would be better for your husband. The longer rides on the beach are for the more experienced. I can recommend the farm rides though, having been on one myself.
