Myself a rider plus my husband, a basic rider, and our 2 girls 9 and 7 who both ride (walk trot canter jump unaided in a school environment) all went together on a group ride with another family. Lisa the leader and Abby her assistant were excellent. Very accommodating and friendly. We were all safe in their hands. A walk... More

First thing I would recommend is check the location as Google maps was inaccurate. The experience and the hosts were amazing and as a first time time rider after the initial shock wore off I started having a lovely ride with Mini and Ula. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone on the fence about it.

I have to say, we were lucky with the weather, and the fact that it was only my parter and I on the trek (and our guide of course), but we had such a wonderful time! I have been riding many years but my partner had only been on a horse once before, it was perfect for both of us... More

I came for the 2 hour ride and it was great! I rode Nip and he was so sweet. They provided hats and you could ride in trainers + walking boots etc because they had safety stirrups. The views were amazing and all the horses were great! The tracks you rode on were mostly made up of loose stones and... More

Pros - Provide helmets, jackets and boots if needed and seems safe Cons - Hard to find, ran 30 minutes late, slow and not much excitement The views from the ride are spectacular once you reach the top and for some of the way down. The ride is basically one hour--on the way up you aren't able to see the... More

First time we came here experienced huge delays and a rider fall that resulted in air ambulance attendance and the rest of the riders were required to walk our horses for a big chunk of the journey! Came back the year after, rode the same horse and had a lovely chilled hack out in great scenery! Really recommend non riders... More

Few issues: 1. Major time consuming delays which caused us to cancel later activities. 2. were promised a trot for the kids when booked the ride and verified it again on check in. the course taken were not meant fro trotting and not surprisingly the guide has canceled the trotting without even the courtesy of notifying us. Anyone who have... More

We brought the kids there for an hour of horse riding and it was rather average. The guides brought the group of about 7 to 8 riders to a walk nearby and back in slightly less than an hour. We thought this would be one of the highlights for the kids in the Lake District but sadly, it was not... More
