Visited this afternoon with two adults riding and three kids 6, 4 and 2. Mandy was amazing with us all: encouraging and giving clear instructions. My 2 year old little boy absolutely loved his first experience of horse riding. Thank you so much for being so lovely Mandy. Xx

My Brother (7) and I (10) enjoyed Cantering across the field and in the ring. Mandy, the instructor, was kind and patient with us, taking the time to organise the course to our different abilities.

Our city kids aren't good with animals but Mandy had them at ease within minutes. They learnt way more than I thought possible in the time. It was also very good value, so we had to go back for...

She learnt more in the hour with Mandy than in the four months she has been doing lessons. We wanted to book another session but unfortunately Mandy gets booked out... More

My boys aged 7 and 10 both rated their horse riding lesson with Mandy as the highlight of their holiday. It was both informative and hands on and the horses were lovely for two children who have never been near a horse before. Both want further lessons when we get home, they loved it so much.
