Wat je gaat doen

If you want to arrive by train, we collect you from Baldock Station and bring you back to our cottage we can discuss your expectations for the day, find boots/jackets and you can be pestered by the puppy. 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 meet your horse and be shown how to (nominally) groom, tack up and do ground work using the same voice commands you'll be using once riding. After mounting (comfortable saddles) there’s a 45/50 minute session 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.

Waar je naartoe gaat

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

We had a wonderful day. The hosts were fantastic, welcoming and so patient as we were both first time riders. The horses are so lovely and definitely go with an empty stomach! The food was amazing! Will definitely be going back.

After reading the other reviews, this seemed like a perfect way to celebrate my birthday so I booked and took my 6 year old and my best friend. We had an amazing time from start to finish, the hosts took so much time to make us feel welcome and introduce us to their world. They love their horses and other animals and it is a pleasure to be in such a peaceful environment. I learned more about horses here than I have at any other riding stables in the UK. The riding was very relaxed, but a lot to learn to ride in a more considerate way than before. We took a break for lunch and as promised, it was amazing - home-cooked and all from the garden. We had provided some dietary requirements beforehand and they went to great lengths to meet our requirements, and particuarly liked that they had considered my 6 year old and had various options for her. I was concerned the riding would be too much for my 6 year old as she'd only done a few minutes of pony riding before but she was absolutely delighted with her beautiful medicine hat pony and she didn't want to go home! As we were a mix of beginners, we mostly walked and concentrated on our form and our bond with the horses with a little bit of trotting from time to time. Fabulous experience not far from London that I'd recommend to anyone. If only we lived closer we'd be there every week!

Nicky and Richard treated us to a very special afternoon in their home and with their various animals. They clearly care immensely about their horses wellbeing and their approach to riding reflects this. The horses are very calm and Nicky and Richard were careful and attentive teachers. Despite having just a little riding experience ourselves, we felt very comfortable and in good hands and much more confident riders by the end. We also had a delicious home made lunch and wine. Definitely recommend.

It was a really nice experience! Riding was fun and I could feel myself getting more comfortable with riding so quickly thanks to Nicky and Richard. Lunch was really tasty too:)

Nicky and Richard were amazing hosts. We felt warmly welcome from the moment we arrived. Everything in the description of the experience was absolutely accurate from the puppy, over the goats, to the lunch and the horses. We did not only bond with Nicky and Richard, but most importantly they showed us and gave us time to bond with our horses. They had an amazing understanding of the horses and their behaviour and were excellent in explaining it. Our lunch was also wonderful and catered everyone (even the fussy eater :-)). They went out of their way to make sure we enjoy this experience to our fullest. I definitely recommend to have this experience with Nicky and Richard and be sure to come back.
