We arranged a child's birthday Pony Party at Carrington Riding Centre for a five year old. We had around eighteen children, all parents or grandparents. The catering was arranged by ourselves. All the staff at the centre were fantastic, with safety being the main priority but not in any way interfering with the fun. It was great to see the... More

Although my daughter is not into pony riding, we were looking for something different for her birthday party. We contacted CRC and straight away they seemed on the ball, informative and answering all my questions. This puts you at ease at things will run smoothly. There were 18 children altogether, including a couple of younger ones. Half an hour riding... More

I am an older woman (53) who wishes to return to horse riding after 20 years and a recent illness. A work colleague told me that this place had a horse riding simulator so I decided to try it to see if I could physically get on a horse and possibly ride. Despite my age and reservations the staff at... More

I've been to CRC a few times now and can say that I think it's a good place for those learning to ride. My nephew is 5 and has had a few private as well as group lessons, and has thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The group lessons are run well, and the facilities and instructors are all very good. A...

My daughters have had lessons over the last couple of months at CRC. They were complete novices when they started and this is the first stables that have visited. The lessons have been excellent and very enjoyable so we decided to book into the holiday club run during August 2013. Both daughters, aged 11 and 13 years old had a... More

My daughter, now 12, has ridden at four local riding schools, including CRC. Carrington is far and away the best organised and friendliest.

I just wanted to say how fantastic my 7 years daughters pony party was - and thoroughly enjoyed by all.The staff were excellent and nothing appeared too much trouble (and I am sure we drove them mad!). It was well organised, the food was great (and lots of it - definitely not worth doing it yourself!). We had 13 children,... More

My son has been having riding lessons at CRC for 4 months and loves it. He has received excellent tuition in a warm,friendly and safe environment. Carrington is a great place for anyone to visit- whether for regular lessons, a pony party or a hack out at the weekend. The staff are really friendly but professional and very good teachers....
