Has anyone been on a 'take your horse' holiday?

Since last year we totally failed to go away at all (due to vile weather stopping camping), we are looking at sorting something definate out for this year - and would like to take dpony with us.

Anyone done this? I've been looking at Valley Farm in Suffolk if anyone knows anything about it, esp as then I could do some fun stuff too, but anywhere reasonably priced in school holidays that can accomodate me, dh, ds(7), ddog and dpony would be fabulous

how much more fun can you handle?

or you could come to boundary farm instead and be my next door neighbour! Although the region probably has better inducements, it is hard to think of them at this time of year. boundary farm

If we go there, I would love to meet you Mitchy. Ds is in awe of your pony dying skills Grin

Do you know anything of the place?

I know both - have not been near valley farm for a while (used to help out at their neighbour, Potsford, once a week) but boundary really is the next farm to us (and I have humiliated myself on their xc course Grin) the hacking is definitely better

and of course private peaceful was shot (quite a lot of it) at our place

oh please come!

I suspect valley farm has more stuff on their actual doorstep, like Easton farm park but it's only a few miles up the road anyway

also we have got lambs

Went here with friends a few years ago and it was great!

CMOTDibbler · 11/01/2013 13:33

Boundary and Hallington both look lovely, but ds will only be just 7, and the XC might just be a little ambitious for the two of them Grin. And I'd have to wear running spikes to keep up.

oh yes, of course! Heh

how about Thetford forest?

Mmm, I'm hoping to take dhorse elsewhere for the summer and my field will be standing empty (but will still have to pay for it). I wonder if the owner will let me sub-let it to a horsey holiday maker? There's a nice pub just round the corner Grin.

We haven't got lambs (bit early isn't it?) but we have a cute shetland and a tame robin, will that do?

Mitchy1nge · 11/01/2013 18:26

Is January lambing innit, they are in a barn. THEY MAKE ME SO BROODY.

I want to offer some kind of equine tourist service, such as leading holiday makers on hacks. We've got some lovely and unusual routes, the water ride for example and the 'race track'. But I don't know if I could consistently resist the gallop home, am working on it.
