"I would urge anyone to try a riding holiday here as everything is well organised and the accommodation and location were superb. The riding school provides tailored riding to suit all abilities, has plenty of bridlepaths and safe riding areas and the horses are forward going. I want to go back there!! Now!! I enjoyed every muscle ache and pain afterwards as it was worth it. I thought it was very good value for money. I highly recommend it and would book through Equine Escapes again without hesitation."
