  • Quad bike obstacle

    Learn how to negotiate your way round the obstacle course, created to practice technical, low speed riding and skills. Participants do not need any prior experience or need to be physically fit. It is exciting, testing and guaranteed to get the adrenalin flowing.

    Reverse steer or blindfold driving 

    Reverse steer. Total confusion reigns as you drive a car that turns left when you want it to turn right. Driven around an obstacle course against the clock and with penalty points for hitting any cones on the way always ends up with hilarious results.

    Blindfold driving challenge. This is a great team event. Everyone gets the chance to drive - whilst blindfolded - with the rest of the team shouting instructions from the back on how to negotiate the vehicle around a twisting, turning track.


    The team must split eight units of highly volatile liquid into stable units. The difficulty is they only have three odd sized containers, and cut backs mean that there is only one protective glove each! A test of logical problem solving.

    Geese herding

    This activity is all about learning how to communicate with the Border Collies and getting them to herd geese through a course. The dogs are trained to respond to a variety of different commands and whistles and you will be amazed at how quickly you learn to control them and experience a traditional part of working farm life and a taste of the countryside.

    Traditional longbows

    Instead of shooting at a target straight in front of you, you will be aiming at an array of polystyrene animals. Take yourself back to medieval days when tonight’s dinner depends on how you perform out in the field. Try out a variety of traditional bows, with our very own Robin Hood showing how it should be done. You’ll be amazed how quickly you improve and how far you can fire an arrow!
