The woman on reception can be a little tetchy but the other staff are very nice and the atmosphere in general is very relaxed and friendly.

After 2 years with my 2 girls (over £1000/year) we have left. Carrington Riding School is a business and therefore are focused only on profit. All smiles until you request something out of their remit. We only asked to change dates of lessons but were told no and more importantly was spoke to with utter contempt at a cost to... More

Horses brought in from Eastern Europe and are not well schooled. Poor things were covered in dried mud and not groomed before being tacked up, this can rub and cause discomfort and pain!! Beware they make you pay up front and if you have to cancel or are late they won't refund you!!!

The staff here can adapt the way they learn people to ride horses, very friendly people. The horses are so friendly too, each with their own personality, my favourite is Ozzy what a legend he is X

We arranged a child's birthday Pony Party at Carrington Riding Centre for a five year old. We had around eighteen children, all parents or grandparents. The catering was arranged by ourselves. All the staff at the centre were fantastic, with safety being the main priority but not in any way interfering with the fun. It was great to see the... More

Although my daughter is not into pony riding, we were looking for something different for her birthday party. We contacted CRC and straight away they seemed on the ball, informative and answering all my questions. This puts you at ease at things will run smoothly. There were 18 children altogether, including a couple of younger ones. Half an hour riding... More
