EQUESTRIAN lovers will delight at a new experience offered by the newly-formed non for profit arm of Cartmel’s Black Horses - The Friesian Experience.

Money raised from some activities goes towards helping pay for veterinary treatment.

You could choose to give a Gift Voucher for a Meet the Friesian Horses experience.

Set on a hillside overlooking Cartmel Priory, Greenbank Farm offers a wonderful location where visitors can meet, stroke and feed carrots and apples to some of the 15 Friesian horses and a cute Shetland pony.

Visitors can take a tour around the farm and find out more about this fascinating breed that originates in Friesland, Holland.

They can see the horses living out in the fields - just like a Lloyds Bank advertisement!

And make sure you don’t forget your camera as there are great photographs to be taken.

Gift vouchers are available for the Meet the Horses sessions, as well as other 'Friesian Experiences', whih include hacks on the fells, beach rides and carriage driving lessons.

Also new for 2020 is an experience like no other. People can book to spend the night with a Friesian horse in a specially converted cosy stable.

Stable Stays - The Friesian Sleepover offers a unique opportunity for an equine companion to nudge you awake from the top bunk!

You can book a one-hour Meet the Friesian Horses tour for up to five people online for £40.00.
