A Special View Of Hyde Park For My Daughter

I had heard such great things about this company that I booked an hour private ride for my sister's visit recently. Note: HOUR. PRIVATE. I have nothing but the highest opinion of our Irish guide. He was attentive (my sister hadn't ridden for a long time and was nervous), read the horses well (when they were trying to play up),... More

We are sorry that this lady did not enjoy her ride, but in these days of health and safety protocols we have a policy that if anyone falls off on a ride the rest of the ride for everyone is conducted at a walk. But as a gesture of goodwill if this lady would like to rebook we will give... More

This is absolutly a fantastic way to combine riding with sightseeing. My daughter who is an experienced rider and myself (the mother) who has no experience both enjoyed the trip. The instructor where very good to make us feel safe and relaxed. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see Hyde Park in a different way and it's... More

Booked a half day camp for 10 year old daughter as special treat. She has lessons every week at home but wanted an extra special treat for completing 11+. She is obsessed with horses and the afternoon was perfect. She is quiet and shy but as soon as the stable management part started I could see she loved it. All... More

Rode with Hyde Park stables on a recent trip to London. I have not been on a horse since childhood. But the girls at the stable could not have been lovlier. We arrived and were greeted very warmly. We booked a hour ride and it was worth every penny. There were three of us and two girls from the stable... More

For 30 years, a ride in Hyde Park was on my bucket list and I finally made it to London and ticked the box. The ride on a sunny day in the park was sedate but highly enjoyable especially riding through the streets back to the stables and stopping traffic to let the horses through. I am an experienced rider... More

My 6 year old granddaughter asked for a day out with just the two of us which was rather lovely.

The stables are nice and the majority of the staff friendly but they seemed a bit disorganised. It was our first time and they didn't go out of their way to make us feel welcome and acted as if we should know where to go or what to do. One of the staff ( a woman with reddish hair aged... More

I have ridden at Hyde Park stables three times. Their regular (non-lesson) hack is a low-key ride through Hyde Park. It's really fun for visitors (they take people of all levels so it's fine if they do not have experience riding) and a great way to see Hyde Park. They provide helmets and boots if you don't have your own.... More

Lovely ride in Hyde Park again. This was my second time in the Hyde Park Stables. The park is gorgeous in every season, so the ride couldn't be in a better environment. The horse I had was a big cob, absolutely bombproof, did not spook at anything and trotted in a slow steady pace. Horses are well looked after and... More
