Choosing the right riding centre

I must admit to having a healthy fear of horses. I appreciate that they are beautiful and intelligent creatures, but it is that intelligence combined with their size and power that somewhat intimidates me.

When looking for a place where I could learn to ride, research was done in a very, very careful manner. Luckily it didn’t take long to find a perfect option.
