What we offer
Step back in time and enjoy a taste of transport through the ages. Everyone will have the unique opportunity to have a ‘hands on’ go at driving a carriage.
Then take the passenger seat as we take you for an adventure in our luxurious rural wagonette.
Keeping with our historical theme, you’ll see a side saddle demonstration. Did you know that side saddle wasn’t just for ladies?
Children will have the opportunity to ride one of our beautiful ponies, seeing how our ancestors travelled.
Learn about the parts of the horse and compete in small competitions! Compare where the horses’ elbow is compared to ours!
Draw around your own foot and then around different horseshoes to compare shape and size!
What makes us a great choice?
Come and enjoy our riding sessions for adults and children with disabilities
