Riding Holiday

The riding was a little sedate for my taste overall but there were miles of beautiful beach so there were opportunities for some lovely controlled canters.

Bev and Rod are wonderful hosts and could not make you feel more welcome. I had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable few days. The food was excellent and I felt part of the family. Stunning views from the house too!

A chilled out riding experience.
This is a very relaxing ride, so much depends on what sort of riding you want. As a result I've said I'd 'maybe' recommend it, as many of my riding friends prefer something a little more 'full on'. But if you want a relaxing ride on well schooled horses, in beautiful scenery, in delightful company and with great food and drink, you can't go far wrong!
