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

I went for a ride today at Hyde Park Stables as a birthday present from my boyfriend. I filled in a form beforehand to say I had never ridden before, but my instructor was not made aware of this and seemed shocked to find out when we were already halfway round to the park. The group was of mixed abilities,... More

We are very sorry that this customer did not have a good ride with us but none of our staff were rude to her, however she was very frightened and in our opinion was very nervous and over reacted and it was very difficult to get her to calm down and listen to our instruction. We have spoken to the... More

Sent family member on the one hour group tour. Horses seemed to be treated well and well cared for. Staff was friendly, however they couldn't answer questions about the horse's breeds or age. Nor, did they proffer commentary, or appeared familiar about sights that were ridden past in Hyde Park. The staff made a big deal about everyone's riding experience... More

This was a fun and unique riding experience - from the intrigue of finding the stables in a London alleyway, to the allure of riding through Hyde Park, my daughter and her friend were quite pleased with the experience. It is expensive, so don't taunt your kids if you're not up to shelling out the pounds. It is worth the... More

We paid US $185 for a private "lesson" ride (one hour precisely) for our 11 year old daughter as a treat while we were in London. She's an intermediate hunter/jumper rider. She was kept on a lead the entire time and the only riding tip she got was to sit back when she was posting, something her riding instructor here... More

We are very sorry that this customer was not happy with her daughters ride naturally our policy is safety first at all times and it is sometimes difficult to judge someones capability and that is why we have the lead rein policy for under twelves. Although the customer was disappointed with the level of the riding experience for her daughter... More

First -- discovering horseback riding in the middle of London is a GREAT surprise. I saw a story on a travel show and looked them up immediately, worried that it may be hard to get a booking. But the website made it easy. I was a little wary that I was essentially sending an e-mail with my reservation request, but... More

Although I have been riding all my life and have horses of my own, I have always wanted to ride on Rotten Row in Hyde Park. Today my daughter and I had a wonderful ride there, courtesy of the delightful, helpful and fun team at Hyde Park Stables - they even fixed some sunshine for us! This is a well... More
