Horsing around in Coniston
If you have never been on a horse but have always fancied giving it a go then Spoon Hall Trekking Centre, based in Coniston, is an excellent choice!
I went horse riding with a group of friends (who had never ridden before) and despite the wet and windy weather we had a great time.
The centre is run by a really friendly family and they are well equipped to cater for all ages and abilities and the horses themselves are well trained.
The trek took us up onto the surrounding fells of Coniston, allowing us to enjoy some of the most breath taking views of Coniston Old Man and the lake itself. Me and my friends hope to do the trek again this summer - hopefully the weather will be kinder next time!
