Guest book

At Fleetwater Holidays we hope that everyone has a wonderful time exploring the New Forest on horseback with their friends and family. Here are a few comments and photos we recieved from our past guests:

Horse riding for the whole family “Just a quick note to say a really HUGE thank-you for a wonderful horse holiday! We never dreamed it would actually be so easy to take our horses on holiday. Your facilities are superb – we had almost as much fun warming up in your lovely arena as we did out on the cross-country course! The forest riding was awesome…long canters across heathland and through the woods – made even more perfect by stopping at a horse-friendly pub for lunch!

For me, the very best thing was the care showered on our horses..they KNEW they were staying at a horse-hotel!! I will be enthusiastically recommending Fleetwater Holidays to everyone I know, and look forward very much to coming back for a longer holiday next time!”

Thanks again Jane, and we’ll definitely see you again!

“Thank you for the fab horse holiday‏”

“Just wanted to thank you again so much for such a great horse holiday, both us and the ponies loved it :-). I have been practicing the fat horse skinny horse technique and Finnigan is going a lot better now, so thank you for the lesson.”


“we had a great time, thank you. Look forward to seeing you again soon.”

New Forest Riding
“My introduction to Jane and Fleetwater has had a profound effect on my riding life. I have gained an invaluable friend, whose long-standing knowledge and practical expertise has culminated in fantastic advice on a number of issues. Furthermore her teaching ability has been exceptional. Patient and understanding to both the needs of the horse and the rider, Jane focuses on how to get the best out of both, to develop a lasting working relationship.

After purchasing my lovely, but rather unbalanced warmblood mare, Lula, I soon realised we needed some assistance. Regular visits to Fleetwater have improved my riding no end, and provided both Lula and myself with a new found confidence and trust. We still have a long way to go, but I am very excited about getting there, especially with Jane’s help on hand. I would highly recommend her.”
