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

Thanks very much to Caroline who escorted my sister and I through Hyde Park a few weeks ago as a birthday treat. We are experienced riders but totally appreciate that they can't believe what you say, so dutifully were led into the park! After a quick trot we were let off and had a great time. Caroline was lovely to... More

Had a great time in a private lesson yesterday, I have only ever been on a lead rein and wanted to enjoy the experience of Hyde Park on horseback. Do arrive before time to fill in the necessary form and get kitted out. They have boots and hats and I brought some thick socks as the website suggests. I thought... More

I am an experienced rider, have a horse of my own and ride about 5 hours a week. I was allowed to ride next the instructor at a walk/trot through the broad, sweeping paths of Hyde Park. I had no desire to do more, seeing the park on horseback in early spring was a wonderful thing! The instructor, Laura, was... More

Amazing that there's still a stable in the center of London. I was lucky with beautiful weather for my ride, which also meant a park full of people. These horses are very well trained/behaved and didn't seem to mind at all. They do take you to the park on a lead as you're riding through busy downtown London streets and... More

What an experience. As a beginner rider I found the instructors friendly, helpful and very very patient. I cannot recommend this highly enough, the chance to ride in Hyde Park is special enough, but combine this with the brilliant staff and beautiful well cared for horses - well, the memory will last with me for some time to come!

I went to London first time when I was 14 years old, and it took me 15 years to fulfill one of my biggest dreams - ride in Hyde Park. I had wonderful time, worth every single penny paid. I asked if I could ride an Irish Cob, and that's what I got. A beautiful, energetic little fella with biggest... More

My 13 year old who had been on a big horse ride only once before in her life had a great time with me. It is a most memorable way to see Hyde Park for the first time. She and I each had our own white horse while our young guide sat had a black horse between us. The three... More
