We booked by telephone, had to re-arrange due to illness in the family - they couldn't have been more understanding. The yard was easy to find, did not use any facilities so cannot comment. Equipment all in working order, including the horses who were well cared for, and very well behaved. The girls were great! The briefing was absolutely satisfactory - put me at total ease.
This beach ride was a gift from a dear friend for my 40th birthday. It turned out to be one of the best things I have done in years! I have never galloped so fast in my life - and I have ridden all my life! Fantastic, Exhilarating, Exhausting, and Adrenalin fuelled! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this experience. I rode a big horse, Queenie, and she looked after me, solid as rock. Once we had made it to the end of the beach, we took some photos, and during the walk to and from the beach. Had there have been a video of the ride - perhaps taken by someone on the beach, maybe on a quad bike - I would have paid £100 for it!!! So maybe that is something the yard could look into, they could certainly make a profit.
Overall rating: Excellent
Very friendly and very helpful in arranging time and date. Very large number of people in stable yard most of whom needed fitting for riding hats. Staff were friendly and helpful though rather stretched with so many people - I gather that some summer staff had left as they did not normally have so many riders after the bank holiday. Careful attention to safety...The beach part of the ride was brilliant...the ride to and from the beach was very slow as we were at the end of a long line of novices.If I did it again, I should try to do it out of the main holiday season.
Overall rating: Good
It was fairly easy making booking for time and date. Getting there was easy, we got strait there, without getting lost. The staff were brilliant, the main girl was great, really friendly, talkative and helpful. The briefing was good, I felt confident everything was explained well.The experience itself was amazing! I hope to go back this summer if I don't, I will definitely be going again sometime. We took photos, and had a great day. I didn't organize the event, my partner bought me this as a gift.
