Located in Bathurst Mews you would never expect a small stable of horses to be located in such a quaint location in London literally tucked inside a beautiful neighbourhood near Hyde Park. The establishment is very responsible and safe for adults and children alike for all equestrian levels. It is a great way to travel through Hyde Park around the... More

I rode with them last year, and this time I surprised my friend with a semi-private ride in the park. Our quick getaway was her first time in London, and what's better way to see that iconic park than riding on a sunny day? They had assigned her riding Blue, however the horse was still on previous ride when we... More

This was a fun activity and we got lucky that on a rainy day, the sun came out just in time for us to enjoy our ride. I'm primarily used to a Western saddle so riding on an English saddle was different, but being in England I should have expected it haha. Each of us had a riding instructor on... More

I really won't recommand you going for a horse ride in this stable as they have no policies and if you're 5+ min late you have to re-schedule with the same price . I came to London as a visit and one of my opportunities to ride a horse has just gone and what made me upset is they didn't... More

We are very sorry that you had such a bad experience. We do state clearly to arrive 15 minutes before your allocated time, and even if you are up to 30 minutes late we continue to take you out on the horses for the remaining time. If we had spoken about this issue I'm sure we would have been able... More

Did a Monday morning ride and was amazed at how well the horses dealt with traffic! The ride through the park was marvelous, and our guide Kelly an absolute delight.

Years ago we were allowed to canter on the dirt path after proving our ability to ride. Rules have changed and sadly despite riding very well for many years, we were tethered the entire ride to the leaders horses and only twice allowed to trot a short distance. We were so tightly held our legs rubbed against the other horses... More

We are very sorry that you didn’t enjoy your experience with us. Unfortunately there are many more activities and obstacles in the park than previous years so we do have to stick to the Royal Parks regulations that are set. The pace of the ride depends on the weather conditions, so with the current high temperatures we do not feel... More

I have ridden with Hyde Park Stables on a previous visit to London. This time I was actually staying in Paddington - and somehow managed to walk past the stables at least once a day, hoping for a glimpse of horses! The stables are walking distance from Paddington station or Lancaster Gate tube. They provide lessons in a small arena... More

Riding in Hyde Park has always been something I have wanted to do but living in the North East of England, I imagined this was something only those who are very wealthy with their own horses stabled in the city were able to do. My husband however looked in to this behind my back and discovered Hyde Park Stables. He... More
