I arranged the beach ride for my wife's 50th birthday present as she had seen it advertised a couple of years ago. She was matched to Eddie, a fantastic, stunning Shire Horse who stands 18.1hh. The ride was on a beautiful beach and couldn't have gone better. A lovely long canter with a very knowledgable and friendly team. Magnificent horses-... More

We spent four days on their campsite as my husband arranged for me to ride as a surprise birthday present. What a brilliant few days. The staff are so knowledgeable, welcoming and fab instructors. I had a break from riding for eight years and so needed a gentle start and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The outlook of... More

I organised a beach ride for my wife's 50th birthday. What a fantastic day she had. Brilliant people and completely amazing horses made this a worthy gift. We will be returning to do this again - first rate.

Looking forward to the next time.

We went riding with Cumbrian Heavy Horses during my birthday trip up to the lakes district. We did the farm ride. The staff were very knowledgeable, safe and really wanted to make sure everyone had the best experience possible. They took their time assessing each rider and making sure everyone felt comfortable on their horse. The horses were lovely and... More

I thought we couldn't get better weather than we did last year, especially since it was mid October, but it was a gorgeous clear day. "Head towards the Isle of Man" said Peter when he was telling us which way to gallop. Big Eddie lived up to his name and was a lovely ride. Lots of smiles on the day... More

Wow! What a fantastic experience we had with the team at Cumbrian Heavy Horses (CHH). Being a beginner myself and Vix being a novice we both had an excellent afternoon on "Bella" and "BigMac" - what elegant, serene, gorgeous & regal horses they all are. Millie from CHH was superb in her guidance and expertise and really helped with making... More
