Ant's Nest

5 star rating   1 June 2019

Saracjb who has been on 6 In The Saddle rides. Absolutely Fantastic | The horses are AMAZING. Willing, fit and obviously happy in their work. There is a wide selection of horses and literally every type and size of rider is catered for. The horses can canter for long long periods and rides vary from fast to just walking and looking at wild life. Whatever type of ride you want - the Ants team will supply.

The riding is great - up hills, across plains, through water, through woodlands. The horses are sure-footed and seem able to happily negotiate any terrain.

I found the saddles very comfortable and the tack was fine.

This was my second time at Ants and it didn't disappoint. It was every bit as good as last time. The team at Ants are so fantastic. Every single one of them are friendly , helpful, efficient and professional. Nothing is too much trouble. They go way beyond what they have to do to accommodate everyone's needs. It was my birthday and they made me a delicious cake and made a huge fuss of me - singing happy birthday etc. It made the day so memorable. This holiday would suit riders and non-riders although I think non-riders would be lured into giving it a go by the wonderful team at Ants.
