Me and a friend found this deal on groupon and it was a bargain! (£32 for a 1hr 30 m trek both of us)
We traveled from the city centre and although a long bus ride it was easy to find, yes a bumpy ride up to the school as ive read in many reviews but i found that added to the escapism, i wanted to be escaping into the country!
The staff drove us from school to the trekking centre which was very welcome and were friendly and welcoming for the get-go
We were made welcome and given our protective gear by Amy and she put us as ease and we were allowed to look at the stables while the two other riders (who were more advanced than us) were put on there horses.
We were introduced to our horses by Josh who led our trek, he was fantastic, very chatty which put me at ease as i was nervous and so was my friend, he knew alot about horses and taught us how to sit properly, control the horse but his friendly nature made it enjoyable rather than scary or like we were doing something wrong! Also the Trek route was gorgeous, we were taken along the canal through woods along fields, the scenery was beautiful and relaxing!
We had an absolutely fantastic time, thoroughly enjoyed it and even though we were walking like john wayne for the next day we would defiantly be back!
