Over the last few years we have received many reviews of our trail riding holidays. 

Here are just a few of them!

The highest equestrian standards...and some of the finest scenery.

Trisha, Germany - Easter 2015
I had an amazing time! One of the best experiences I ever had!! Thank you for a wonderful time!!

Jeanette - August 2012
Myfanwy was simply delightful - a truly amazing woman. Seeing the semi-wild native ponies in their natural habitat was amazing and a completely unexpected delight.

Marcia - July 2011
I loved it! A difficult ride and a big challenge for me. But I did it - hooray for me!! Had a great time and loved the people!!

Will, USA - July 2011
I loved the countryside, people and everything. I think we had a lot of laughs!

Michelle - May 2011
Our trail leaders were spectacularly knowledgeable about the environment, history of the region, current events and horses and were so friendly. I wish I could have stayed longer!

IB, Bishop's Stortford - June 2010
We were really well looked after - just the two of us and one guide. The fast bits were eye wateringly fast .....ideal for accomplished riders.

....heaven on a horse....routes can be as challenging as you like.

Helen, New York - June 2005
I still can't tell you how much fun we had - it was just a wonderful vacation and I miss you all. Say hello to everyone for me!

Ben & Judy, USA - August 2003
Thank you for a great ride. I really enjoyed Ben (equine) and Ben (the human) loved Duke. We hope tocome back and do it all over again.

Linda - May 2003
Thank you for an excellent trail ride. I loved riding Minty - she certainly looked after me on those steep climbs and descents. The group were interesting and good company and we had some specatular views from the tops of the mountains, but I also enjoyed the country lanes with the high hedges and wild flowers.

Christine & Hans, Germany - August 2002
Many thanks for a wonderful week we had together with you, your group and your fantastic horses.

Birgitte, Denmark - July 2002

Thank you for a wonderful week of riding your fabulous horses through the Welsh countryside. I am so appreciative of getting to know and spend time with a true horsewoman such as you, Myfanwy. Everything was just wonderful!!
