The experience is YOUR TIME... try a little of everything or stick to our beautiful Clydesdale Horses!

Trek on horseback on or off farm!        The choice is YOURS...

The Experience... from £30.00 per person

On arrival at the centre you will be greeted by one of the family where they will discuss what you will be doing for your unique time with us, conduct the essential safety briefing and get you kitted out with hi-vis waistcoat and a safety hat if required

Our aim is to give you the chance to get a taste for what life is like looking after and preparing some of our amazing Clydesdale horses and other farm animals by getting hands-on.

This is a very individual experience and will vary depending on your requirements, weather and the farms needs.

Your Experience is tailored for you.

With your time you can enjoy interacting with all the farm animals, work with, ride or drive our Clydesdale horses. Halter Carlos and Hayden our Alpaca boys, Henrietta and Bubbles the Mischievous Donkeys or Bachy and Claudia the feisty Highland Coos and take them a walk. Assist in washing, grooming, mucking out, tacking up and feeding the animals, giving you an insight into their lives.


For experienced riders why not try your hand at herding on horseback or bareback riding


We are very flexible and try not to have a set routine as everybody has a different idea of what fun is!

If you don’t like something while visiting, we can mix it up.


All participants are accompanied by an experienced handler whether on farm, off farm , beginner or experienced.
