    Fantastic mini trek with amazing scenery
    My girls went on a mini trek. 5, 8 and 11. They all had a fantastic time riding through such beautiful countryside. The ladies were very friendly and helped put them all at ease. I would highly recommend and we hope to return next year when on holiday in this area again.

    Wonderful stables and a fabulous team
    Took my daughter for a trek for her birthday, she loves riding but is a bit nervous after an accident a while ago and the staff there were so patient and kind to her building her confidence until she was happily trotting without a lead rein. The trek took in some lovely views and it was great for her to get out of an arena and just enjoy being on a pony. We will definitely be back to visit Sparky and the rest of their gorgeous ponies soon!

    Fantastic
    Wow we will definitely be coming here again. Sheila & team are lovely, the horses are so well behaved and the view were amazing according to my 14 year old daughter. She had the best time - she thought she was going to visit a church haha so it was a lovely surprise. It’s easy to find, very affordable and open to riders & non riders. They ask you wear study boots & will lend a hat or like us you can bring your own riding gear. Parking onsite. I think if you have a love of horses this is a must. My daughter really enjoyed it and stopped moaning about missing her horse riding lesson back home. Thank you to Sheila, team & the lovely horses.

My wife went with her friend for a birthday treat. They're both in their 60's and neither of them have been on a horse for over 20 years and told this to the person who took them out. My wife's horse didn't pull in correctly on a road - probably her lack of experience. The instructor then tied a rope to her horse and led her the whole way. My wife complained that her saddle was slipping to one side: the instructor told her she was not sitting correctly and that her hands were up (they weren't as my wife's friend can attest). At no time did this "experienced" instructor stop and actually check the saddle. The instructor kept pulling the rope in closer until my wife's leg was rubbing up against the instructors horse. Absolutely appalling lack of patience, tolerance, compassion for rider and animal, and for the fact she was being paid good money. My wife could only assume that this woman had had a bad day. Neither of them shall be returning. Excuse my equine ignorance of Horse/Pony.

This is the second time I have ridden with the Boltby Stables and they didn't fail to disappoint. Sheila, the owner, always does her best to accommodate all experience's of the riders and match up the horses accordingly. The route she picked included a lovely wooded hill top for our packed lunch with fantastic views all around. In fact, this summed up the scenery for all of our ride. I believe that the diversity of riding scenery is second to none with riding through woodland to moorland and through pretty villages etc.. It is certainly one of my summer highlights that I look forwaqrd to and will go again

Can not rate sheila & her granddaughter enough! I was so nervous about trying this but riding was on my to do list and my auntie bought me a gift voucher!

We went when the weather wasn’t the best but it was still very relaxing and peaceful surroundings. Sheila is really nice and interesting, I really recommend going here if you are beginner as your nerves will be put at ease!

I will definately go back when the sun is out as Boltby is beautiful, the horses are well looked after and it is reasonably priced.

Thank you!

My daughter and her two friends, all 15 went out for a day's hacking with Sheila. The weather was bad in the morning session but didn't dampen the fun they had. All three of them had a wonderful day. They all said they would not hesitate suggesting others visit.

We visited today for a beginners ride for my daughters and a friend. They had never ridden before and were made to feel very welcome and put at ease by Sheila and her staff. They went out for a 40 minute ride through the village and into some lovely countryside. They thoroughly enjoyed it and are already asking to go back! Highly recommended.

It was an absolutely amazing experience, we were all novice riders but were made to feel completely at ease straight away. Our trek was through some glorious Yorkshire scenery and the horses were so lovely and gentle. I would recommend this experience to anyone regardless of their ability! Many thanks once again!
