Spent 6 days riding at Wheal Buller. It was really enjoyable and good fun. Great to get some riding tuition and ride on the beach. Instructors were great as always and teach at all abilities.

Went with my partner, who hadn't been riding for over 25 years. I'd never gotten on a horse before, so they had to accommodate a total beginner and someone 'sort of' experienced. We went on a two hour hack through the beautiful countryside, which was gentle enough for me and taxing enough for my partner. The staff were so friendly... More

I had a fantastic time, learning lots and really enjoying it. The staff are lovely and really good at teaching and there are lots of ponies and horses of all different types so there's always a choice of suitable animals whatever your riding ability. This time I stayed in a B&B - which worked really well. I've been before staying... More

A colleague and I took a group of 10 students, aged between 12 and 16 years old, and we all had an absolutely fabulous time- the sort of holiday the students will remember for years. Great attention was paid to matching students with appropriate horses, bearing in mind such factors as age and experience, though students did have the opportunity... More

My teenage children swam in the lake in the morning and had a fantastic experience. We were able to meet them to take photos then they had a good hack back. In the afternoon I did the beach ride. Sadly the weather could not be controlled and we all got soaked. Despite that, and the rather strange man who insisted... More

The staff here are friendly, supportive, knowledgeable, positive and fun. They are excellent at building self esteem and confidence, and meticulous about ensuring safety. The horses are happy and well looked after. Ruth welcomed us warmly and dealt with the necessary paperwork. Gina took us on the swimming hack at just the right paces through the breathtaking scenery of Poldark... More

Went their for three days with my best friend. The staff were really caring and didn't push me to do the things I wasn't comfortable with, but helped me to improve and be confident with jumping. The accommodation was clean and tidy. The horses were wonderful and I enjoyed my ride (Jess). I enjoyed swimming with the horses and I... More

Really good instruction on truly wonderful horses and a whole week made interesting and entertaining for a group of mixed abilities. My husband was a complete beginner but can now boast that he knows how to trot (and rise on the correct diagonal), that he can canter in light seat (and sitting, if he hangs on to the saddle!) and...
