Enquiry: this is just a quick note of thanks to you for the hour my wife and i spent on one of your riding lessons today. i booked an hours private lesson with sam, joe and toni as a suprise birthday present for my wife who has riden before but not for a while amd myself who had never been near a horse let alone got on one! your staff, horses and stables are first class. we had a wonderful hour in which neither of us felt (despite our obvious difference in ability) that the lesson was being geared towards just one of us. the horses, barney and splodge, were lovely and from my own personal point of view your stable staff were excellent with neither of them making me feel like the novice i clearly was. thank you again for a birthday my wife won''t forget in a hurry and possibly introducing me to a new hobby. regards mike eaton

I really enjoyed my recent two day riding holiday here. The owners and their staff are all lovely and very welcoming. The Instructors were great, very complimentary and professional. The horses were all really good, very well behaved and nice to ride in lessons and on hacks. The accommodation is perfect, especially as it's on site. Lovely breakfast and good food locally. Thanks again to Lorraine, Jamie, Brogan, Alice, Joy and Louise.
