Had the best time. Booked a 2 hour beach ride for myself as a treat. The girl who took my trek was lovely and easy to talk to. Poppy was my horse and she was so nice to ride with a good temperament! Would recommend fo anyone and hope to come back again soon!

We had a great experience for our 1 hour horse riding on the beach. Amazing views on the beach and the gorgeous autumnal weather helped. The team were very helpful and really well organised.

We went horse riding this week for an hour and my daughter 10 and I enjoyed it. The horses were very calm, and there were a number of staff on hand when we went down to the beach. Would totally recommend it.

What a fantastic experience... We're just back from a gentle stroll/trot on the beach, it was on my bucket list for a long time and my hubby surprised me with that gift on a wild and rain-battered day, it couldn't have been better, he was very brave (first time rider) and I was very scared (hadn't been on a horse in 30 years, it's not exactly like a bike, you tend to forget the height of them!!!) Jessica my horse was a good match, but mainly the Team and especially the instructors were very professional, you feel like both the staff and animals are happy there. We felt very safe despite the dreadful weather, I always heard that the wind made the horses very nervous, but they were well kept in check by the instructors at all times. Can only recommend whatever your level or abilities, the magic of the beach will remind with us for a long time. We'll be back on a calmer sunny day for a gallop!

What an experience, it exceeded my expectations, value for money, fun, scenery was fantastic, horses were well matched to the riders abilities. Myself and my son had a ball the weather didn't put us off. We will be returning again soon we loved it so much.

Our kids loved every moment of it. The experience was wonderful for them. So much that when they woke up the next morning they dreamt of riding horses.
The staff was amazing and so kind. The lady who helped my daughter was telling her so much about horses that she was so captivated through out the ride. My daughter is much older then my son and he just enjoyed the ride along and tickled the horse every now and then and checked in if the horse was okay.
