Warm autumn, rustling leaves underfoot, the ubiquitous proteins, begging food from passers-by; flowering rozy.Vsё it adjusts to the lyrical lad- London thou art fair.

My experience reflects other similar reviews from experienced riders (I should have checked Trip Adviser first...!) Before my ride, I'd imagined clipping through the park on a large gleaming bay. The reality was a little different. To firstly recap the positives: the guide was lovely, the safety protocols excellent, the Mews was charming and the horses in good condition. Other... More

Our stables is set in the quiet Mews of Central London, to get into the park we have to cross very busy main roads therefore we are extremely pleased this client was impressed with... More

My 11 yr old daughters and I are experienced riders. I have ridden since a child and my daughters for the past 5 years. We have ridden in countries around the world. We were most impressed by how well Hyde Park Stables treats their horses. The stable hands clearly love their animals, see them as friends and talk about each... More

Staying in London for a week I booked a private lesson followed by a park ride one day, and another private lesson on another day. The stables are a few streets from Hyde Park in a quiet mews in Paddington. Short walk from Lancaster Gate tube or Paddington tube/station. I used to live in this part of London and I... More

My lovely husband booked me a solo ride as a treat for my birthday on a break in London. This has been high on my bucket list for years so to say I was excited was a understatement. Having done some research and read some reviews before I went I was prepared to not expect to be let off the... More

A few weeks ago I left a review on here saying I was less than impressed with this experience. The manager kindly commented saying he would offer me a complimentary ride to make up for this. I took them up on this last Friday, and I am so glad I did! My instructor on this occasion was Hannah, a lovely,... More

Our niece (11) is visiting from abroad so went for an unusual treat as she horse rides at home. Bit like going back in time seeing horses in a little mews hidden away. Horses all look well cared for and whilst she hopped on and was ready to be off in a flash I needed a bit (ok a lot)... More

Having never ridden before I was a bit apprehensive about taking a horse out around Hyde Park. However I needn't have worried as everything was taken care of. It was very clear that the horses are well looked after and From the explanation prior to going out to the ride itself my teacher was informative and thorough and made me... More
