Happy Horse Visitor

Julie, her property and her horses, are amazing. The home is great, the horses are gorgeous, and Julie is so wonderful with children and making them more comfortable with horses. Her wealth of knowledge – wow! We will be coming back, this experience was invaluable for our daughter (and us).

Obstacle Horses

Our family wanted to get away from it all. This was the perfect place to do that. We wanted a place were our kids had no mobile phone reception :-). The place was comfortable and the kids enjoyed the pool. My little horse lover thoroughly enjoyed helping with the morning and afternoon horse feeds with Julie and also did a horse riding lesson with her, which my daughter loved. Overall this is a great place to escape and relax.

Horse Lead Work

This place is super relaxing and has all the amenities you need for a comfortable time away. We loved the privacy, pool and star gazing around the fire at night. Julie, the host, is friendly and accomodating. The horse experience was brilliant—the kids and adults all had a wonderful time with the animals. We hope to return one day.
