Local horse riding

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

This is my 7th year at wheal buller. And I can honestly say this my favourite place to be. I ride every week in a lesson and we do arrange of different things. I also do hacks sometimes and they are amazing, the views you see are beautiful and always look great. All of the horses at wheal buller are... More

I have ridden many many of the the different horses and ponies that have gone through the riding school! And each and every one is... More

It's been so hard getting back into work this week and for me that's always the great sign of a fantastic holiday and it so was. Last week was probably the best holiday ever. We were very lucky with our group, sides were sore from laughter for sure, there was nothing to fault in terms of accommodation, food, great teaching... More

At the start of August we called up to see if we could book a hack for that same day, and they very kindly fitted us in. However, we managed to get horribly lost (don't trust your sat-nav!) and turned up about half an hour late to find the ride had left without us. We were thrilled when we were... More

Perfect beach to ride on, wide open and surprisingly empty. Experienced instructor and willing horses overall couldn't have been better.

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.

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
