Au programme

Happy to collect you from Baldock Station; back at our cottage we can provide boots/jackets. Over a welcoming drink and a snack (arrive hungry please!) you can tell us your riding experience; we pay serious attention to your expectations as we aim to provide each rider 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 feed carrots, nominally groom and do ground work using voice commands. We normally divide the riding (bridleways or country lanes) into two sessions of 45/50m each divided by home made lunch or supper with wine but we might keep you up for 90/100min and eat afterwards ; depending on weather and your fitness.
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 a very close second to your safety :-) but the experience of viewing the world through the ears of a happy horse could start you on an amazing equine adventure.
If you weigh above 80kg/have children below 12 please get in touch before booking.
We hope you'll enjoy this form of riding which focuses on voice commands (no kicking or pulling) thus insuring your horse enjoys it as much as you do ;-).
We also offer an introduction to Mindful Riding for intermediate riders who are with first-timers and want to progress at a deeper level.

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.

Le lieu

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

Words cannot express how enchanting this experience is! The respect and love for the animals is inspiring and allows you time to connect to the horse in a way that commercial trail riding does not. The ride is scenic and peaceful, Nicky guided me through breathing exercises and Richard taught me how to trust myself, work my core, and understand the synergy between me and the horse. They are a dynamic duo who make you feel at home and feed you yummy food, great conversation, and education about nature, animals, and mindfulness!! Will definitely be returning ❤️

This experience was so beautiful from the minute we got on the grounds. We were getting started early, and since we were coming in from an hour away, were looking for a place to spend the previous night. We were fortunate enough to stay in Nicky and Richard’s cozy cottage as part of the experience. The most comfortable bed we’ve slept in in a while! They were such wonderful hosts, looking out for our dietary needs with fresh delicious food right from their garden! The horse experience was so special. Nicky and Richard are so mindful of their animals and really taught us how to appreciate and respect what horses let us do with them. My wife and I will surely be going back, and highly highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to spend some quality time in nature and around such kind and gentle animals.

If I could go back now, I would. I wish there was a better way to express the awe I felt other than five stars. Richard picked us up at the station, a short ride to the farm. Richard was really friendly with lots and lots of knowledge that he generously shared with us along the ride. We were greeted by Nicky, coffee and a snack in their beautiful home. And the horses... my my, the horses. They were the sweetest, most gentle horses I’ve encountered and it was very clear that they were at ease with us. The ride was epic to say the least - Nicky and Richard were at our sides at all times, and they let us try lots of exercises in balance, breathing and being mindful on top of a horse. A gentle walk along the farm doesn’t compare to a trot on a track - it really felt like a collaboration with the animals than a sport. After the ride, we had our lunch made by Nicky by the beautiful cottage, watching the ducks, chicken, dog and goats roaming casually among us while we devoured the food, the company, and the surreal scenery. Soothing my leg ache, I want to thank Nicky and Richard for such a wonderful place, being so welcoming at their own home and privileging us to meet their awesome horses. I am already counting my days until I can go back.

That was an absolutely amazing experience - on every level!!! I was very nervous about the whole thing as I’ve never even been near a horse, let alone sat on top of one. But Nicky and Richard were very reassuring and gave me the gentlest, loveliest horse and offered the Mindful Riding option where one goes slowly but learns how to move with the horse and get an idea as to what the horse is telling you it’s feeling. Richard taught me how to balance (I was riding with my eyes closed and not even frightened) and Nicky taught me the breathing and focusing. By the end it felt like something incredible - almost magical - and then we came inside their fantastic cottage for Prosecco and huge choice of home grown/home made delicious food. I would like to do this every week of my life, completely recommended.

We had an amazing time and experience with Nicky and Richard. Communication was seamless from the start, and Nicky and Richard are such lovely people and very accommodating of our train times and (lack of) riding abilities. The horses were gorgeous and very well cared for, and so were the other animals on the property. We went for a lovely ride around the countryside, and Nicky and Richard were amazing teachers and great company as well. We came out of the lessons having learnt so much about horses and horsemanship. The ride was followed by an amazing homemade dinner at Nicky and Richard’s lovely cottage. Would strongly recommend, and can’t wait to visit again!

Nicky and Richard were fantastic teachers and hosts. The riding was enjoyable and the homemade food was delicious. I especially liked how much the horses are respected and treated as companions to the riders.
