We did the sunset ride, Sarah & Jason were our guides and Jason was brilliant especially as I was a little nervous, well worth the visit and they have accomodation and camping site available too.

Staff were very friendly and accommodating with young children for pony rides and keen horse riding adults enjoyed their riding experience along the river. Rides and horses matched to riders ability All equipment including boots and helmets supplied.
