Booking information for holidays

Please check out the video above to get a really good insight into one of our holidays.

To book your stay at the Ranch, in the first instance please send us a message or use the contact us form requesting the dates and letting us know how many are in your party. As much information as possible regarding riding experiences is also very helpful at this stage. We will then check our calendar and confirm to you if the dates requested are available or if not offer alternative dates. Once we have confirmed the dates a deposit of 50% is required to confirm and secure the holiday. The balance is payable 4 weeks before your arrival. We can accept a bank transfer or Paypal payment. 

We offer courses from beginners through to very experienced horsemen and women, please ask for details if you wish to work on something special. We are very flexible as we are a small team dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. Special dressage courses with recognised professional instructors are available. Clinics and workshops will also be held throughout the year.

When you arrive at the Ranch on day one of your holiday you will immediately notice the difference from any other horse holiday you have taken before. You will be welcomed  with a tea or coffee on our spacious terrace and you will be asked about your previous experience with horses and what you hope to achieve during your stay. Following this you will be allocated an appropriate horse and collect your horse who will be your companion throughout your stay unless circumstances mean we need to change (ie an injury to the horse).

The experiences we offer are tailored to your individual experience and ambitions. Mixed levels can all participate in the same group due to the small group sizes (maximum 4 people). Each session lasts approximately 3 hours and can comprise of groundwork, riding in the arena and hacking out, following of course collecting your horse from the field and grooming and tacking up before each session if you choose to do so.
