Hyde Park is an historic place and its more unique when riding through it on a horse. After hearing so much about Hyde Park Stables, I just had to visit. I am fortunate to have gone there twice now.

Dear Jason, Glad you enjoyed your ride. James can be a bit grumpy but its fun grumpy not nasty grumpy! And he is just the same with the staff. Last week he wouldn't let a new girl get to the cupboard that's situated in his stable and which ever way round she went he would move, typical! But we have... More

I am a very novice rider but my 2 friends are advanced. Our guides were able to access our abilities and we all had a fabulous ride chatting and enjoying the sites. A perfect adventure! Thanks to everyone at Hyde Park Stables.

As an experienced rider, I feel I should have known better. We rang up requesting an experienced hack, not wanting usual stable type horses that just follow one another and were assured that we would have a great hack. Wrong. Whilst the hack was a stunning way to see around Hyde Park, all we did was walk and trot, despite... More

It is always very disappointing when ignorant people write lies about the way our stables are kept and do this anonymously, hiding behind TripAdvisor, knowing that if they made this complaint publicly we would take action against them for liable.The horses at Hyde Park Stables are rotated on a regular basis, usually working two months on and one month off....

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.

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.

Two years ago, my daughter saw people riding horses on Rotten Row while we walked through Hyde Park. She put it on her "must list" of things to do. Last month, she checked it off her list. Great things included 1) getting to ride on London streets and around Hyde Park, 2) a chance to trot with her grey horse... More

Thank you for you kind review of our stables.Just to clarify one point about our weight restrictions on our horses it is not because they are smaller than the horses in other local stables but we restrict the weight as we are busier than other stables and do not wish to overburden our horses, so that they are just as...

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
