Wow! what an experience, something quite magical.
Horses and the sea! two of my favourite things, even as an experienced rider there still were some nerves at first but these were very soon expelled by Chris and Shel being so kind and helpful and as for the horses so beautifully behaved, they were so happy and natural, the horses really did enjoy it too with Chaska leaping in the sea! I even enjoyed the riding bareback to get to the beach just as much, reminded me of being a teenager!
Highly recommend can't wait to go back. So glad I found this wonderful place.

We stayed with Cornwall Swimming Horses for the entire riding holiday package. The accommodation was incredible - a beautiful yurt in a private woodland. The accommodation provided all the fun and rustic outdoor living of camping but with the essential home comforts that we needed after a day of riding - cooking facilities, wifi, comfy beds and the most refreshing outdoor hot water shower. The campfire, outdoor eating space and rope swings were a lovely touch too. As for the riding - never experienced anything like it before! The Cornwall Swimming Horses provide capable riders with an incredible experience - they're forward, fun and most importantly for me, genuinely enjoy their work. As an advanced rider, I often struggle to find riding holidays which push my limits and set me a challenge which these off road rides certainly provided. We even had the opportunity to work with Chris on his latest project - two 'straight off the moor' colts that were in for handling and backing. A brilliant learning opportunity. Can't recommend Chris and his team of horses enough. See you guys again very soon!

Had a fantastic ride with Chris! We went on a Riding for Riders ride on the moorland for a full day and it was one of the best riding experiences I've had. Rainy and windy day was well spent. Would definitely recommend Cornwall Swimming Horses for a more experienced rider who would like to go on an adventure. A few spots were good enough for a nice canter and an occasional gallop. Will be sure to have a ride with them again when I'm back in Cornwall! The horses were very well behaved but not opposed to going forward, especially loved my mount Gino.

Swimming with horses was a fantastic experience. Having not ridden much recently there was an element of nervousness, especially ridding bareback but I needn't have worried in the slightest, it all came flooding back and Chris was so patient. The time flew by and I know I will be back to this fabulous and relaxed stables for another ride very soon.

Had an amazing experience with Chris, Shelley and Lisa last night and not forgetting Chip, Bella and Ju Ju. Lovely relaxed bareback ride down to the beach through Agapanthus fields and awesome time in the ocean with the horses. Truly magical experience and I would thoroughly recommend. Perfect mix of the two things I like the most - horses and the ocean.

I have ridden since I was 3 and was lucky enough to grow up with my own ponies and horses. When I became a grown up and could no longer afford the time and money that horses require I had no option but to get my horse fix by paying for lesson and hacks at equestrain establishments. Over the years I have ridden at some great places.. and some no so great.... and I can honestly say that this hack was by far the most amazing experience since selling my last horse.
The yard was honest, Chris was insightful, and Noel (my beautiful horse for 2 hours) was lively, responsive and a complete gentleman!
I could go on... and on.... if you are looking for a good fun ride reminiscent of riding yor own horse look no further!
Thankyou Chris and Shel for helping me to remember why horses are so good for the soul.
