Just got back from spending a week at Wheal Buller with my horse loving daughter. I had never ridden but this did not matter. The staff, horses, views and atmosphere are all fabulous. Even though I don't think horse riding is for me, I loved the amazing Hacks and am so pleased that I found this cornish gem. I will... More

I was impressed by your grit and determination and even if horse riding isn't for you, you know you are capable of going out for the occasional ride with your daughter. Thank you so much for your lovely review and I hope to see you again when you drop your daughter off to stay with us. Best wishes. More

I have worked at riding stables and know how hard it is to cater for everyone!But my experiences here have been brilliant. I'm a experienced rider and my fiance is a novice. I found the variety of horses fantastic. The escort allowed me to canter and really kept an eye on my fiance, so I didn't need to worry at... More

My daughter and I had a wonderful week at Wheal Buller. My daughter is pony mad and quickly made friends with the other children staying there. She was kept busy with the ponies from 8am to 5pm, with at least 5 hours riding a day. She loved every moment and says it was the best holiday of her life. She... More

I have just returned from what I can truly say was one of the best holidays I have ever been on. At the beginning of the week I was quite a nervous rider & I could not canter very well, however, by the end of the week I am now full of confidence & found myself laughing whilst cantering along...

My sister and I, both ladies of advancing years, stayed for three nights last week at Wheal Buller Riding School. The remit for my sister was to improve her confidence out hacking, which was sadly lacking. This was achieved spectacularly. She undertook hours of hacking around the most awe inspiring countryside and was ecstatic that she felt no fear! The... More

My week here was probably the best holiday I have ever had. The instructors cater for different abilities brilliantly. I felt safe but challenged in the lessons. I never dreamed I would improve so much in a week. By the end of the week everything about my riding had improved thanks to the wonderful staff (particularly Ruth- who is one... More

I stayed for a short residential riding holiday, lasting three nights/four days. The accommodation is not lavish, but very comfortable and extremely good value. Janet's food is excellent - good restaurant standard, and the portions are generous. We had three courses for lunch and dinner! Breakfast is help-yourself: toast, cereal, etc. The horses are lovely. The school currently has 55... More

A slightly late review, but I stayed for a week at Wheal Buller last November and had a fantastic time. There were only three of us for the week and the instructors went out of their way to make sure that we were all catered for. I loved the drill riding and would love to do that (and other flat...

We booked a two person pub ride here (2hrs approx) and were able to amend our booking at late notice to become three persons. The horses were riding school, but entirely fit for purpose, not lame and not unfit. One of our number was very much a beginner and had the perfect horse for his needs. The ride itself was... More

I have been taking my son with additional needs for sometime now.it's had a massive therapeutic effect on his wellbeing and has drastically helped with his challenging behaviour.the staff are always accommodating, helpful and willing to listen. My son loves his weekly private lesson and occasional sat club. Can't thank them enough
