    Great place for horse riding when on holiday. I did the advanced 1 hour ride as an experienced rider, and you do lots of galloping in the forest, it’s great value for money. My horse was well trained and responsive. The man running it spoke a little English and kept checking we were happy during the ride. Would recommend

    Fab experience for our 4 year old! Our pony was a little lazy, but the staff were amazing and came on our ride with us. Would highly recommend, my daughter loved every second!
