Customer Feedback:

"Wonderful week in Cheshire horse riding through Equestrian Escapes.  My 10 year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed herself and the coaching and support she received from the trainers at the stables was second to none."

"Just returned from an amazing 2 night 3 day stay in beautiful Cheshire. 
The spa hotel was lovely, the breakfast amazing and the staff couldn't do enough for us. The stables were fabulous! Chris our trainer, knew her stuff and worked out quickly what we needed. I was assigned a fabulous horse called RED who just knew I wasnt very confident but looked after me so well. I even learnt to canter for the first time! Sandra the owner, was lovely too and we felt very much at home. We are lucky to only live 40 mins away and will be back for private lessons in the not too distant future. Meanwhile were ready to book this amazing break again & have emailed for a quote. Our party consisted of 2 mums and our 13 year old daughters and we all agreed it was the BEST UK holiday EVER!! Please pass on our thanks to everyone involved"
