Depending on the weather we'll start with a riding lesson where I'll walk you through the fundamentals of groundwork, balance, seat, shifting your weight, reigns, leg aides and some time for you to practice on our beginners horse. I'll be with your all the way. Next we'll take a relaxing walk around the farm to meet, pat and hand feed our animals.
We have specialty wool sheep, Scottish Highland cows (fluffy cows), goats, Horses, and a mini horse, goats, ducks (sometimes ducklings), Chickens (often chick to hold), a dog, and a few more to meet. I'm happy to answer any questions you may like to ask about farming in our area or the local history.
If the group want to and time allows we can take a short walk up a hill to see the Horrors mountain range and take some photos. This is limited to 4-5 guests due to the riding time, but let me know if you have a larger group and we can extend the time and add more guests if needed. You may like to add the lunch onto this experience and that would extend your riding time also. Private experiences are also available for bookings or special occasions.
This combo has been asked for by guests and we are really proud to be able to offer it as a way for guests to enjoy a farm experience with two of our most popular activities. Please note riding is available only to children and adults under 80 kg, to ensure rider and horse's comfort.
