8 of us did the half day trek a couple of days ago. We loved it. Alyssa was great, horses were loved and very gentle. Scenery stunning, a ride with plenty of variety. A whole pack of non-riders who had a wonderful day and sore, but not too sore butts!

A superb day on a superb horse in equally so surrounds with an equally so guide - the inimitable, Bert. My aunt and I were looking for an adventure and we found it right here! This was one of the best things I have done in an awfully long time. Thoroughly recommended.

My daughter and I had a great time on the 1 1/2 hr river trek, I was rusty but he took a couple of us off for a canter ..... so fun in a beautiful setting. Great at pitching for all levels of riding ability. Looking to book again !

My husband and I went on a 1 hour trek which was better than we expected. My husband had only ever sat on a horse before and it’s a few years since I had ridden....also, as my husband keeps fit (martial arts and body-building type things) he isn’t small and has been told by other horse trekkers he’s ‘too heavy’ for the horses! ..but it wasn’t a problem at Peel Forest. The horses were very good and although they ‘know what they’re doing’ there is still an element of ‘riding skill’ required. Bert was great - a real character - very patient and has years of experience with horses, so knows what he’s doing. If you’re not used to riding, I would recommend the one hour ride to start - but we’re looking at going back at a later date for the 2 hour trek.
