HIGHLY RECCOMEND
Nov 2020 • Solo
Highly reccomend this riding school and activity centre. A great range of equine and social development activities for children aged 8-18 and great for learning to ride and progressing. Staff members are very helpful and accommodating to all customers needs. Polite and well mannered ponies and horses. Great experience, great for things to do in Newcastle and days out.

Very family friendly
Jun 2018 • Family
Have been here several times with my grand-daughter and family, and we all love everything about the place. The staff are just great, and very attentive to the needs of the children and family. There is a cafe for drinks and small meals, and they also do a range of gift memorabilia for the little ones. There is an excellent viewing gallery on an elevated level, which has lift access and well appointed toilet facilities. Only slight negative, there are not many parking spaces, but there is ample elsewhere withing the Ouseburn. Definitely recommend.

Fantastic place with friendly staff
Apr 2018 • Family
I took my 4 year old for his first lesson here. He had such a great time. Staff were knowledgeable, friendly and great with kids. My sone cant wait for his next lesson. Such a great thing that this charity does to provide an experience like this in the city.

An absolute pleasure
Sep 2016 • Family
We visited here whilst on holiday. We booked one off lessons for my 4 year old who has no riding experience and my 10 year old who has some limited experience. I wouldn't describe myself as the easiest customer to please (!) But credit where it's due- I was very impressed with this experience. The quality of teaching was excellent, the place seemed to be very well run and all staff were helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend :)

Don't Go Here!
Aug 2014 • Solo
Appears to be nice at first however I have rode here for 18 years and finally left last year. Staff have favourites and treat them differently from the rest of us. Get judged on your height rather then riding and the management do not treat disabled riders fairly. Put on the same pony over and over again despite informing the instructor that the pony was too easy for me. Level 5 rider and loyal to this stables. Theres a better stables elsewhere. Look around, don't settle for here. I did for 18 years and wished I moved riding schools sooner.

Fun, professional riding school in the centre of Newcastle
Jun 2015 • Solo
I have been riding at Stepney Banks for several years now. When I first decided I would like to get back in the saddle I tried out a number of riding schools in the area before settling on Stepney. The combination of well schooled horses, fun lessons where you constantly feel challenged but also safe and opportunities to get involved make this a fantastic place to learn to ride.

Highly recommended riding centre
Jun 2015 • Family
My 8 year old son and I both ride here, we're both coming along nicely and the instructors we've had have been helpful and understanding. They will listen to what you want to do and help you to achieve it, you just have to ask them. We both do volunteering - learning about horses and helping others to learn to ride, not many places will offer this to both adults and young children - there are always of plenty of volunteers willing to help, and having been asked to pitch in and lead on my son's lesson at a previous school, it doesn't feel at all like they are stretched for helpers. Its a lovely centre in a great location in central Newcastle, a stone's throw from the Quayside so you can go have coffee and cake by the river afterwards!

The Place to be
Jun 2015 • Family
My daughter is 6 and has been learning to ride at Stepney since September. It is a brilliant place, super friendly and a real family feel. They have been so patient with my little girl going at her pace and when her confidence was low they got her to spend some time in the stables grooming the ponies which helped enormously. I can't recommend Stepney enough and my daughter is constantly wishing she was 11 so she can volunteer!
