What a fantastic weekend! The whole experience went beyond our expectations and more.
Our horses Willow and Rosie were adorable, honest, safe and such fun. Two days of hacking; through spectacular landscapes; cantering across mountain tops and moorland, walking through serene woodland and stopping to appreciate the views, of which will last a lifetime.
Rach and Mand.
What our guests say...
Our Horses & Ponies
This is a list of all our horses, during your stay you will be allocated a horse suitable for your ability, height, weight & personal preference.
You will have the opportunity to change horses if you would like to try something a little different. All of our horses are forward going & responsive to give you an enjoyable ride.
You may notice the "Ladywood" prefix to some of our horses names, this signifies that they were either bred or bought as foals/yearlings & broken in by ourselves.
Murphy is a 15 hh fleabitten grey, Irish Draught X . Murphy is our weight carrier, can be a bit slow, (try him in spring and he's a different horse) but it depends on his mood. He is NOT a plod just laid back!
Great for beginner to intermediate riders. Is a real character we call him affectionately our "Grumpy Old Man". He lives to eat!
Ladywood Black Rose
Rosie is a 16hh black Shire X Welsh Cob. A handsome mare with a really forward going stride & a powerful safe canter.
She's got bags of presence and the more experienced riders will appreciate her.
Ladywood Whispering Willow
Willow is a 15.2hh piebald Cob X. Absolutely lovely ride, good for any ability as very forgiving, wish we had more like her as she's worth her weight in gold.
She was the baby of the bunch but has grown up now (Rosie's daughter) and she's still a loveable spoilt brat. Great to jump.
Dolly is a 14.1hh skewbald Cob type She is a schoolmistress for novice riders & has become a real favourite with everyone who has ridden her.
Real confidence giver for jumping. An enjoyable ride, safe but not slow.
Ladywood Cwm Cariad
Carie is a 13.3hh chestnut Welsh Cob. Cariad means sweetheart in Welsh & that's just what she is
..well most of the time, but we all have our off day's don't we girls!
Snowy is a 14hh grey Highland pony. She's our youngest pony, just started learning her job. So far, so good :)
Loves a kiss and a cuddle, pleasure to handle.
Ladywood Tio Pepe
Pepe is a 13.3hh silver dun part arab . Bought as a foal, we couldn't resist his good looks & charm even then.
He really is a little stunner. Gives a light airy ride, trot & canter to die for, walk a little lazy, beautiful jump.
Monty is 13.3hh black New Forest X. He is a real sweetie loves hacking, has a really steady canter and loves to jump.
An asset to the herd and great childs pony.
