Any one who loves horses will enjoy this trip. The horses are absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately we didn't get to see the musical ride but would definitely go to see it.

A lovely little museum with a tour of the stables and the area where the horses practice and live. Very informative and we saw the horses returning from their workout. I wish we had been able to see them practice the musical ride!

We really enjoyed watching a training session of the Musical ride and it was marvellous to watch, even without the music. The barn tour was fantastic and we learnt about the history of the ride and got to meet some of the incredible horses too....More
