horse riding in Hyde Park (41 Replies)
Has anyone used Hyde Park Stables for riding?On their website,they list the max.weight of 175 lbs...This seems a little bit light for the avg.male...Is there any other companies that offer riding in London that anyone has used before..We always like to go riding on our vacations,I would like to keep up the tradition.Thanks for the help.

I think the Hyde park stables is aimed at the under 16's age groups and it is ridiculously expensive.

My September trip with my 14yos is approaching, not nearly fast enough! We are thinking of going for a ride around the park through these guys. I was wondering if any of you have done this, how long the rides are, approximate cost, and I assume the rides are with guides? Any information you have about this would sure be appreciated!!

We have taken a ride through Hyde Park with Hyde Park Stables. It was a lot of fun! The ride was an hour and we paid £55 each. Reservations are necessary and must be paid for in advance. Yes, a guide rides alongside each rider. They provide the riding boots and helmet.
