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

Your review is very much appreciated, thank you. It was a credit to you and your colleague that everything went so well, we always felt you were behind us when we made decisions and as a result all the staff agreed that yours was the best organised group of the season. Hope to see you again. 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...

We have just spent a fabulous week riding at Wheal Buller. Everything was laid back but very well organised. They put together a great programme to suit our abilities. Most days we did flatwork and jumping lessons and a hack, but we also tried long reining, lunging (on and off the horse), bare back and Western riding. The real highlight... More

This was my first encounter with horses, I came from never being on a horse to trotting in 6 days. Everyone was supportive and understood what I wanted to achieve. The trip was easy to arrange and excellent value for money.Beautiful horses, Fantastic instructors, excellent lessons.The hacks were fab! Even got to ride saddle less in a lake! 🐎🐎🐎🐎🐎
