I went to Mill Farm for a 1.5/2-hour trek in June this year, which was booked through a group-on style voucher with niece. As relatively experienced rider, having ridden on and off for longer than I care to admit and owned my own for over 7-years I was looking forward to riding a different horse and hacking out with my niece. The initial greeting at the farm was a little disorganised and resulted in us starting nearly an hour late. We asked our ability level so we could choose an appropriate ride and assigned an appropriate horse. I was given a nice steady horse and my niece a lovely little reliable pony, my niece was anxious about doing the gallop and I have to Della who led our ride, was amazing! She gave my niece amazing confidence to gallop and even gave her the opportunity to do it again as she loved it so much - so thanks Della you helped make her day.
Overall the experience was good, it wasn't fast and furious but the ground conditions weren't conducive to that kind of ride. I felt with the group on voucher it was definitely value for money and might have paid up to £25.00 - £30 no more though. But the end result of a very happy, confident niece who had a good time was achieved and for that I would highly recommend, thanks Mill Farm and Della in particular.
