  • An amazing weekend – Thank you

    My daughter took one of their planned 2 hour rides through the forest, local market and down into the lake – an experience she will never forget. How often do you get to swim with horses?
    She then also had the opportunity to stay, help exercise other horses and work there for a day and a half. To say that she thoroughly enjoyed it is a massive understatement.
