Swimming with horses was amazing. I saw the website just before going on holiday to Cornwall last week. I thought how wonderful it looked and regretted that I wouldn’t be brave enough to try it, mainly because although I can swim I’m not confident in deep water, particularly in the sea, plus I’m quite a cautious person! My husband encouraged me to book and I’m so glad I did. Chris and Shelley and the staff are really friendly and welcoming. When you book they listen to what sort of swim you would feel comfortable with and tailor accordingly. The horses are beautiful and very well behaved. Before you ride you are given a chance to get to know your horse and to ride in the sand school before setting off for the beach. Each horse and rider has a Cornwall Swimming Horses handler with them alongside during the bareback ride to the beach and in the sea. Chris was fabulous and completely inspired confidence, as did Shelley; I therefore felt safe going out into the deeper water to swim on horseback and was able to enjoy the experience at my pace. It was so brilliant, really magical. I can’t believe I’ve done it! Thank you CSH.

Went on the 2hr beach ride the afternoon of my swim and loved being able to ride Chas as I felt I got to know him on the swim and ride there and back. He was very well behaved and calm as all the horses were and they didn't get on to the beach and start wanting to go, which made it a pleasant relaxed ride. But he picked up the pace when needed and led the gallop at one point! The freedom to let the horses go is amazing. Thank you Cornwall swimming horses for a day to remember!

It was such an experience and a privilege to swim with these beautiful creatures (my mum loved watching it too!) and I knew as soon as I met Chris and Shel they were going to be professional but friendly and fun. Chasca is such a sweet pony and it was great I had a swim on Chip and Bella too as I was the only client swimming that day! Thank you for offering this amazing experience and keeping horses and riding fun! Hope to experience again and persuade a friend to too
