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

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

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.
