“An amazing day out”

Reviewed 31 August 2012

Me and my friends love riding and we don't normally get the opportunity to ride on the beach! We had an amazing day and we had so much fun! Getting to see ogmore from a different angle and we would defiantly recommend it to anyone wanting a fun day out and having the opportunity to ride through the surf! It is suitable for children to adults!

Me, my sister and my best friend all ride often at a stables in Weymouth but really wanted to try riding on the beach and decided to come here. When we got there they were very kind and helpful. The ride was a lot more than we expected, we crossed rivers galloped along tight little paths in the sand and cantered along the beach which was amazing. everyone there is so kind making sure you are always ok .We would defiantly recommend it and are planning on going back very soon. :)
