Guest experience: A Ride Across the Moors

Riding across the moors on a willing pony, the scent of gorse, warm in the sunshine.  We climb to a high point to see the north and south coastlines stretching away in the distance.  Leaving the moors behind, we ride through the World Heritage Site Mineral Tramways.  Passing through the doorway of an old smelting hall, we canter back across a valley, scattered with the old mine chimneys and cushions of yellow gorse.
