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! 🐎🐎🐎🐎🐎

Extremely friendly and knowledgeable - easy to arrange and very well priced. Both teenage girls had a great time and would recommend to everyone, experienced and novices alike.

My son (13) and daughter (11) have just come back from a fantastic 3 day stay at Wheal Buller. They had a wonderful time with a great bunch of other kids, lovely ponies and really enthusiastic staff. It was their first time staying away without anyone that they knew, but they were so busy enjoying themselves that they didn't even... More
