It's not always easy to find an activity that everyone equally enjoys but spending an hour or so at Polmartin with Jane and her team was a massive hit with all of us (mum dad & 2 children 7 & 9). Non of us had any (or very limited) riding experience but this wasn't a problem as Jane made sure... More

Off road riding in beautiful countryside. The horses in tip top condition as was the tack and the entire establishment. Friendly welcome by wonderful staff and as a rusty but experienced rider I would [and do}recommend Polmartin to all folk, as they clearly cater very well, for both novice first timers and more experienced riders. You even get to see... More

Found down a narrow country lane this hidden treasure delivers and then some. The horses are wonderful and there is an air of calm and happiness that adds to the equine ambiance, then there is the smell so typical of stables it is so good here they could bottle it. The staff are great and so horse mad that you... More

Wonderful location, impeccably managed. Happy and healthy horses and safe riding, whether in the indoor or outdoor schools, or out on a hack. I felt like I was in extremely capable hands and learnt loads.

Everything she told me about my riding now makes sense and I can take this away with me! Thank you so very much Jane for giving me that helping hand I only wished we... More

My daughter and myself enjoyed a lovely country hack on horses that suited our abilities, with friendly (and entertaining - Jane) staff! Great tracks completely 'off road' on the owners own land. Even a glass of fizz as we were the last ride 😊 Highly recommended.

We visited Polmartin Riding for an hour "ride out" in July 2016. We were very impressed with the place, especially the superb horses (Domino and Bracken), friendly staff and our guide/instructor Jane who did an excellent job of pointing out our little foibles and bad habits (we are both novice riders). It is a shame we live so far away... More

I rode kowloon on a 1hr hack and he was fabulous. The 2 guides were friendly and helpful when I said I was a nervous rider. I shouldn't have worried as I had a couple of fab canters. Hope I can come back! I'd love a flatwork lesson on kaldoon I bet he's fantastic. Lovely place, people and horses.

This is a friendly riding school with acres and acres of beautiful off-road hacking and beautiful, mainly Arab horses, almost all bred by them. Prior to the hack they check how you ride and you have a few minutes to practice something that you want to work on (in my case canter and sitting trot), then we headed off to... More

I visited polmartin today (1st June 2016) with my husband and 14 year old son who has ASD. All the staff were friendly and very patient with my son. We all really enjoyed it.
