For anyone even vaguely interested in horses this is a must do activity. The whole experience was excellent from the moment you arrive. The initial tour was very professional and full of interesting information and the show that followed was spectacular. A wonderful experience all round.

This is a must visit. Excellent guided tour before the show, and up close to the horses in paddock and stables. Show lasts 1 hour and is wonderful. Great way to spend 2 and half hours

Excellent visit Challenging to find. Better instructions would be helpful. Do not follow Sat NAV! It told us to park on the motorway and walk from there!

It was a wonderful package. The learning, the professionalism, and of course, the stars of the show...the horses.

Great couple of hours whether you enjoy horses or not. The show was a real spectacle.
