We visited again having thoroughly enjoyed our time earlier in the year. This time taking parents (in their 70's) along for the experience. Both haven't been on a horse for many years and are beginners. The whole experience was yet again spot on, from arrival to being matched to our new four legged best friend to our introductory session in... More

I bought this riding experience as a Christmas gift for my wife. She was very apprehensive as it had been 27 years since she was last on a horse but she need not have worried as the staff were very friendly and informative. I went along on the ride also and we both enjoyed it immensely.

Received a beginners ride as a Christmas present and finally got to go on Saturday over Easter. Was really well organised, started on time and we were left in the very capable hands of a couple of ladies who got us up on the horses and gave us a quick run down on the controls in the yard before heading...

One of the girls introduced him to the horse and he instantly hit it off with the horse and the girl. My son was thrilled about the ride and kept asking to go back on not... More

We booked in for a half hour lesson for our daughter who had never ridden a horse in her life. The staff were incredibly professional, friendly and most of all patient when dealing with small children and animals. When we next in the new forest we will definitely return for more lessons.

The 2 girls that took 5 of us out, friendly, but to pay £65.00 when all we did was walk for 1hour and 59 minutes with under a minute of trotting, would not go there again

This was a birthday present from my boyfriend, he's only been on a horse a couple of times and I am experienced in English riding but that didn't matter as all types are catered for. I was paired with the lovely Coyote....he has the air of 'I've seen it all and then some' and I loved his nonchalant character, apparently... More

Really enjoyed my time with the ponies. I'd never ridden before, but I was made to feel welcome and put at ease. Felt I was in safe hands throughout. Would recommend.

I came to Burley-Villa School of Riding for a Western Day Experience. My boyfriend bought it for me as he knows how much I use to love riding as a child. I haven't been on a horse for more than 15 years but the staff made it really easy and stress free. The ranch is very welcoming with tea, coffee... More

My husband and i bought the lunch option too so we could spend some of the day with her. There was plenty of tea... More
