Ruby's ride
Oct 2021
My granddaughter had a ride with Claire in October and adored it. She can't wait to go again.

The stables and horses are excellent and Claire and her helpers couldn't have been better.

Magical trek
Oct 2021
What a wonderful experience with Claire and the lovely john. A lovely greeting from them, gorgeous horses and all in all a magical trek ending up with taking the horses in to the sea. Just memorable! I can't recommend highly enough. Thank you

Fabulous experience!
Oct 2021 • Couples
My husband & I are complete novices but Claire & her team made us both feel so welcome & at ease as soon as we arrived. Our trek down to the beach included some amazing views of the coastline & riding through the sea & on the beach was magical. At all times we felt safe & relaxed on our horses, Summer & the majestic Rocky! A wonderful experience that we would hope to repeat on our return.

Friendly and helpful riding establishment with well schooled horses and ponies. Beautiful surroundings and knowledgeable staff. Photos taken by Claire so that you have a photographic record of the ride.
Nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended.
Thank you Claire, hope to be back on the Isles of Scilly next year and will book well in advance!

Oct 2021 • Family
We had a Fabulous time after Claire organised a last minute beginners beach trek. Both girls were so happy- on lead reins and one daughter was nervous initially but Claire and Jean were kind and calm and both girls came back so happy to have such a beautiful adventure x

Looking forward again to next year!
Oct 2021
Absolutely wonderful place! Very very nice people (Claire and Lucy) who were as warm and welcoming as they were caring about the safety, and you could tell from the beautiful and lovely gentle horses that they were being exceptionally well cared for. I loved that as a beginner I was cared for very very well, and I enjoyed my one hour trek endlessly! It is such a lovely experience to see the area on horseback, and it gives a very different feeling, too. I am looking forward to doing the same next year again! Thank you, Claire, Lucy and Summer!

Excellent riding - on Summer
Sep 2021
I’m a regular rider and always keen to get a ride when on holiday. I had ridden at St Mary’s Riding Centre 10 years ago so knew it was good, but it was even better this time. Glorious scenery, great weather, a lovely ride on Summer which included walking in the sea at Porth Hellicck. Claire and Lucy were great at customising rides to suit individuals’ experience and we all had a great time. So grateful!

Visiting St Marys Riding Centre is an essential experience when exploring this beautiful island
Sep 2021 • Solo
I was greeted at the stables by a warm welcome from both Claire and Lucy. Who after making sure all safety measures were in place they showed me to one of their very well cared for ponies, summer. I, having ridden for many years was keen to squeeze a canter in on the ride, and even though there were some beginners with us, Claire was very accommodating and allowed Lucy to take me off to explore at a little faster pace, which was a real treat.

There is no better way to explore St. Marys than riding over the fern-covered clifftops and down onto the deserted beach coves and into the sea.

I'm eagerly trying to book my next visit to St Mary's now, which will most certainly include a trip to Claire's riding centre again.

Thank you for a great experience.

Great riding centre
Sep 2021 • Family
Very welcoming staff - well behaved horses. My daughter and I had a lovely hack - she is a beginner and felt confident throughout. Beautiful way to see some of the island including a paddle in the sea.

Inexperienced riders
Sep 2021 • Couples
As occasional riders we felt entirely relaxed in the hands of our guides, Claire and Lucy. The views of the surrounding countryside and bays were superb, the walk along the waterside amazing, and the chat with our hosts informative. If you’ve never tried riding but fancy a go, we’d wholeheartedly recommend the experience here!
