My 8 year old, horse obsessed daughter thoroughly enjoyed her pony day here. Wasn't quite as the itinerary but she enjoyed none the less.

Thank you for your review, very happy your daughter enjoyed herself. There are only two reasons the itinerary is changed the main one being for safety due to riders age or experience and of course very bad weather. Hope to see you again. Best wishes
