Vad du kommer att göra

After we collect you from Baldock Station and bring you back to our 15th century cottage we can discuss your expectations for the day and work out the best type of horse for you. Over a welcoming drink and a snack (arrive hungry please!) you can tell us your riding experience; we pay serious attention to evaluating the characters of each rider as we aim to provide you with the ideal equine partner for your day with us.
Having signed a disclaimer and had a hat fitted you’ll lead your prospective horse in from the field, and be shown how to (nominally) groom, tack up and do ground work. After mounting (comfortable saddles) there’s a 45/50 minute lesson outside on paths or fields then a home made lunch so you can relax and process what you’ve learned, followed by another 45/50 minute hack out.
We can go as slowly as you like, you won’t be pushed out of your comfort zone! Forgive us in advance for putting the horses’ happiness first :-) - but your experience of viewing the world through the ears of a willing happy horse could start you on a really wonderful equine adventure.
If you’re an experienced rider we might ride to a pub where there’s a small paddock for the horses to graze. Afterwards riding back to the farm where the goats will greet you like long lost friends (especially if you've brought them back a cold chip!)

This experience involves learning how to ride a horse using your voice (no kicking or pulling)!. We’ve spent the last thirty years training horses, riding very long distances all over the world, sorting out people’s ‘problem ponies!’ and teaching nervous beginners. I’m a qualified riding instructor, we both love yoga which we use within our riding. We are saddened by the normal way people are taught to ride - horses are not machines! Maximum 3 riders per session so NO large groups where everyone just follows the lead horse. We limit the experience to just nine people per week so that the horses keep enjoying it! We run a very ethical yard - the horses (mostly arabs) are unshod, living outside in a herd. We love cooking and make bread daily; Richard grows all our vegetables and our hens provide the eggs so lunch means minimum food miles.

Var ni kommer att vara

We take you on a personal adventure to horsemanship - which can be very different from just riding. We teach you to experience the world from the horses’ point of view. But we’re happy to point out badger setts, fox holes, local fauna and the jackdaw tree. It should be a unique experience on gentle, sensitive horses who enjoy going out. Companionable silence is also an option if preferred - we want you to have the best, relaxed time possible

This was a wonderful day for any rider of any experience! I had never ridden before but rode with my experienced friend, and we were both able to get so much out of the session. Nicky and Richard were warm and welcoming, and made us feel like we were at home. Not to mention the delicious food that was served to us! We would love to come back at some time in the future :)

Fantastic experience with great and knowledgeable hosts! Would gladly come again as their genuine care for the animals is rarely seen and much appreciated. Excellent for beginner riders too.

I purchased this experience as a surprise gift & I can honestly say that this is worth every penny. Nicky & Richard went above and beyond to accommodate to our requests and upon arrival on their beautiful farm, they were very welcoming and provided us with some delicious home-made snacks. I was initially hesitant to participate as I haven’t had a good experience with horses previously but following their guidance, I quickly grew confident & felt a bond with the animals. My partner instantly immersed herself in it & enjoyed every single second of her surprise. The guided ride, the location, the weather… it felt like we were abroad! Nicky & Richard’s knowledge, dedication and commitment to their animals were such a sight to see. They made sure that the interaction between us and their horses were pleasant and safe for both us and the horses. After the ride, we were provided with a delicious home-made dinner and they even went above & beyond and made us a dessert using ingredients straight from their own garden. From the moment you arrive to the time you leave; they do their best to make you feel at home and they do all they can to ensure that you have an unforgettable experience. I would highly recommend this experience to everybody and I can honestly say that you will not be disappointed. I wish I was still there!

We had a really special day with Nicky and Richard and of course their wonderful horses. I was a little nervous, viewing myself as a failed rider, but this didn’t last long. They are very mindful of your comfort level and the horses were very gentle and calm. My 11 year old also enjoyed feeding the hens. Nicky and Richard have had some amazing experiences and I hope to find out more one day. The environment was very attractive, lovely cottage, huge garden where you eat lunch, and seemingly endless countryside for riding. They had gone to a lot of trouble for lunch, we had a great Mediterranean style feast with wine and Prosecco. If you love food and animals you can’t go wrong with this experience, highly recommend.

Thank you so much. I really recommend. The grandchildren absolutely loved their experience. They loved experiencing a different way of riding even with their current knowledge of owning their own horses. We all felt extremely welcome as a family, the food is beautiful they are both amazing cooks. Their knowledge is phenomenal they’ve got so much experience in the equestrian industry. I fully recommend! An amazing experience for the whole family.

Nicky and Richard were great in all aspects. Since the moment we booked until the very last minute of our experience. Super hosts! They have an amazing relationship with the horses and a deep understanding on how to ride them in a much more respectful way. Although I have ridden horses before, this was a great lesson and challenge! A different level of riding and feeling the animal. I would definitely come back to learn more. My husband and I felt really welcomed. Loved it!
