    Last minute… super bonus find!!!
    Our daughter and her friend holidayed with us in Skegvegas. We looked for a riding school nearby as they are both avid riders. Luckily we found Orchard Farm and the amazing Jamie. Booked a beach ride via text (very trusting of him) and an early start due to tides. Very welcoming at the stables. Girls were allocated amazing ponies (all animals at the stables looked in tip-top nic). The hack and time on the beach were thoroughly enjoyable. Al th ouch at times they were totally out of sight, Jamie captured videos and photos (thank you). We will return for sure. Girls loved their experience. For parents/guardians- head for the North Sea observatory and park there to see as much as possible. Overall- wonderful experience and it’s great to support an independent business who provide a great value product. Thank you Jamie and team.

    A Fantastic Beach Ride
    What a fantastic experience for my 9 and 17 year old. Jamie was professional and checked their riding skills before being allowed on the beach ride. The horses were calm on the road and knew their job. Cantering along the shore line through the waves will be a memory that stays with my girls forever. Definitely recommend.

    Brilliant gallop across the beach
    Excellent beach ride on the wonderful Bell the clydesdale. Very quick to book and brilliant ride with a good few gallops across the beach including going into the sea. Highly recommend to anybody that fancies this experience, Jamie was a great leader for the ride!

    Beach ride
    My first trip here for a beach ride with my granddaughter (her second visit) and what a brilliant ride it was. I cannot express how much fun we have had today. Jamie is passionate about providing a wonderful beach experience, he is encouraging from the word start and very easy going. The horses and ponies are very, very well cared for and clearly love the job they do. I felt 100% safe on the horse I rode on the beach and road. My granddaughter rode little Oscar the pocket rocket, he was 100% safe and what a delight to see them having fun galloping along. Small group of riders, we all returned with beaming smiles 😁 and soggy bottoms after our paddle in the sea. I will definitely be back and my granddaughter is already booked in to ride with her friends. 👏🏻👏🏻

    Great day our
    We came here for a beach hack. My daughter is an experienced rider and Jamie made sure she had the right pony and was able to ride within her comfort zone. They had a great time riding in the sea and on the beach so a long-held ambition achieved! Horses were well cared for and looked healthy. Thanks

    Absolutely incredible!
    This was probably up there with one of best riding experiences I’ve ever had. I was a little nervous when I was asked if I was okay on a 17.3hh Clydesdale and having never galloped on a beach - but when we got on the beach it was just incredible!!! Jamie was so lovely, we chatted the whole time and the horses were so safe but also so fun!! The horses knew their jobs so well, a steady canter to ease us into it and then went full speed on the way back! My partner and mum went on a novice hack at the same time and said it was great and the lady that took them was fantastic and the ponies really fab! I would recommend this experience to anyone and will definitely be back!

    Went horse riding something to do for mine and my wife special anniversary. Jamie is friendly and horses are friendly too. If you want to book best advice is book by text and would recommend if you want to do something different on holiday.

    Excellent experience
    We had such a lovely time! Myself and the kids are complete novices and we were very well taken care of, the horses are beautiful and friendly and we enjoyed an hour long hack through the gorgeous countryside. The lady with blonde hair who walked with my daughter was so kind and friendly, thank you so much for a brilliant experience

The perfect end to our Butlins break. My girls loved their hour on Arthur and Rosy. Staff were friendly and the horses seemed well looked after and relaxed. Highly recommended for first timers as the team put everyone at ease!

On holiday at chapel… Amazing beach ride! A first for a daughter and I’ve not rode in many years ! All communication was excellent with Jamie and he picked the perfect horses for us! Hercules and Oscar.

The cantering on the beach was awesome
And plodding in the sea ;)
We both loved it and can’t wait to do it again when we return !

Absolutely loved this ride on the beach. I had Magnum and my cousin had Hercules, they were great and they knew exactly what their jobs were.
Jamie even got some good videos/ pictures of us and sent them after the ride.
