Bought a groupon 90 min trek and I have to say I will definitely be returning for more! Overall, I had a thoroughly enjoyable time with plenty of opportunities to canter and gallop too. The horses are so well looked after and the instructors were fantastic and I simply cant fault them. Really made me feel at ease and clearly knew what they were doing.
My only niggle has nothing to do with the ride itself, more the directions to the second location after checking in at the farm. Had a minor panic when I found myself alone, driving alongside a canal on a single lane track and thought I mustve gotten lost but no, this is indeed the correct route and it eventually brings you out to the stables. Maybe couldve mentioned that one! But otherwise, adventure navigation later, I was astride the gorgeous Jake seeing the beautiful countryside and feeling completely at ease with both the horses and the instructors.
I was also lucky that I had two other really lovely, ladies on the ride with me and who were competent and didnt want to simply walk and trot. I'm far from the most fantastic rider in the world but, I must admit, I was pleased we were n't a mixed ability group and were able to pick up some speed along the way!
Overall, a really fun, exhilerating and a fantastic 90 mins out!
