Estuary Trek - £20 per horse.

Beach Trek (Novice) - £30 per horse.
Suitable for complete beginners/novices (from 8yrs up if accompanied). Trek down through the farm land to Fairbourne beach. This is just at a walking/trekking pace. The Centre does not mix abilities unless a more experienced person wishes to stay with their less experienced friend.
Beach Trek (Experienced riders only) - £40 per horse.
This Ride is the same as above but when you get to the beach your guide will take you in an opposite direction to the novices and you can have a steady canter/gallop along the golden sand and along the waters edge. This ride is for the very experienced regular rider who is experienced in riding out in open space.
Safety hats are provided free of charge and are up to date with the British and European standards.
