"I highly recommend Rachel and Lakeland Horse Trails.
I was slightly nervous about bringing my 5 year old mare out for her first fell ride but Rachel and Enar were so patient and made us feel at ease the whole way through.  I could not recommend them enough. 
Such a beautiful ride and Rachel knows the route so well meaning you can just relax and take in the amazing scenery. Can't wait to return soon!"
