All in all a fantastic experience which we can highly recommend, thank you Murton.
Jul 2021
My 10 year old daughter has been riding at Murton for the past year when possible throughout lockdown. As a novice she started with 30 minute private lessons and after about 12 of them progressed to the beginners 30 minute group lessons, which reduced the cost per lesson. Since then she has joined the juniors one hour group lessons each week for the same price offering great value for money. She absolutely loves her time at Murton. It is a family run and owned equestrian centre with friendly staff and instructors. The ponies and horses are well looked after and cared for. My daughter completed an “own your own pony day” in the half term and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of horse and stable management, riding and fun and games with her newly made ‘horse mad’ friends. So much so that she asked to do it again in the summer holidays. She has just completed her first “own your own pony week” which was an absolute winner. Such a great experience, chance to make new friends and learn so much. There was also a Gymkhana at the end of the week with competitions and prize giving. It was so good to see the riders encouraging their new found friends to ride well in each round and congratulate each other on their successes. There was a lot of laughter too at the ponies and their unique ways of completing the course. All in all a fantastic experience which we can highly recommend, thank you Murton.

Friendly and professionally run equestrian centre with something for everyone.
Jul 2021 • Solo
My daughter has just started riding and Pony Club here and loves it so I decided I would try the “adult own a pony day” and had a brilliant time- it was a great refresher for me and the group was a lovely mix of abilities.
The yard has a friendly atmosphere, is very well organised and professionally run. All the horses are well cared for and a pleasure to be around- I hadn’t realised how much I had missed being around horses until today! I can’t wait to do more of the activities on offer and will be recommending the yard to anyone who will listen!

Great equestrian yard to learn
May 2021 • Solo
I’ve always wanted to learn to ride but wondered if I was too old as an adult. Absolutely not. The instructors are friendly and helpful. I chose private lessons and they have really helped me excel. From never being on a horse to cantering within 12 week is pretty good going. I usually come once a week. The horses are so well behaved and excellent for beginners. I’ve ridden a whole host of different horses and this has been excellent experience for me. I really enjoy coming each week. I’ve attended a day course as well to learn to look after a horse from grooming, tacking up, stable management, leading & catching. It was a great day and included an hours loose lesson with your instructor. Really good value for money.

The best riding school in the north east
Jan 2021 • Solo
Having moved yards to Murton and done my research I can honestly say this is a fabulous place for people of any ability and age to learn about horse and to ride. The staff are very focussed on the welfare of the horses and ponies and the attention and commitment to helping riders to learn is second to none.
The horses and ponies are all healthy and happy and the yard and facilities are brilliantly maintained. Standards are very high.

Outstanding riding school
Jul 2020 • Family
Friendly family run riding school. The horses are well schooled and the instructors extremely knowledgeable. Every level of rider is catered for and made to feel very welcome. Relaxed atmosphere whilst having a lesson. Both my daughter and myself ride here and highly recommend it. My daughter practically likes the jump and go competitions that the school runs.

Very friendly riding school, with amazing horses and friendly staff that are always helpful. Kaitlyn, one of the instructors, teaches amazing lessons, learning you all you need to know about the horses and techniques! Would 100% recommend this riding school, I’ve been there for 2 1/2 years and I love it!

Fantastic
Jul 2019 • Solo
Finally plucked up the courage to fulfill a childhood dream at the age of 46 & booked my first riding lesson. I cannot praise this place enough. The staff are extremely friendly, approachable, knowledgable & quickly put me at ease. I started with private lessons to learn the basics before joining a weekly evening class. This is the highlight of my week. The atmosphere is relaxed and everyone in the group encourages each other. The summer evening hacks are amazing! There are lots of opportunities to take part in events such as dressage & jumping in an informal setting. The 'own your own horse' days are not to be missed. I would highly recommend Murton Equestrian Centre.
