Hectares of fun
In this day and age, when our workload can feel like an impeding tide that drowns us of energy in the evenings and on weekends, we need something to ground us. To calm us. To set us free.

Horse riding can do this.

They say horses have a human instinct like no other. Whether you're a first-timer or an intermediate, you'll find serenity and a whole lot of fun at the Cherbon Waters Equestrian Centre.
