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

Another brilliant week at Wheal Buller. Definitely improved my riding and confidence. It was lovely to ride so many different horses and ponies, meeting some of the newer ones as well as some of my favourites from previous trips. Even got to try vaulting! If you're looking for a place to ride where the horses and ponies are well looked... More

I am a cautious and nervous adult beginner, having ridden for only a few months. I booked a week's holiday to gain more "saddle experience" than my weekly lessons allow. Before arriving at Wheal Buller I had never been into a stable to groom or tack up a horse, never ridden outside the arena, had jumped only one jump and... More

My wife and I were holidaying in Flushing (across the water from Penryn and Falmouth). After a brief horseback experience on our holiday to Cuba earlier this year we decided to have another go so off we went to the Wheal Buller Riding School. Due to us being total novices it was decided that we should go on a steady... More
