Our Western Experience days are a fantastic way to introduce yourself to western riding or even to improve your existing skills. They start with breakfast in our onsite café where you will meet the team, followed by a ridden demonstration from our riders. You will then ride for around an hour before untacking and having lunch, which is provided in our café. After lunch, we teach you how to lasso before having another riding session. We then finish the day with tea/coffee and cake. There will be three UKCC qualified instructors teaching you, David and Sarah Deptford and Olivia Lochhead. The riding sessions will cover the basics of western riding and dependant on riding experience, some other western manoeuvres will be covered.

The cost of these days is £200 (including VAT) per person and include 2-3 hours of riding, breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea and cake.
