Horse Riding Adventures
The company is run by Rich who is an ex soldier and his partner Sam who gave up the city life as a company director. Rich is a keen rock climber and in 2003 the couple opened a rock climbing activity centre called The Orange House. After rescuing numerous animals they were offered a horse that needed a home, and this was the beginning of Hoof And Mountain. The stables now have 6 horses including the slightly crazy Shetland pony Lottie who thinks she’s a dog 🙂

2 Hour Trek – This is the perfect trek for novices and those who haven’t ridden in a while.
