I just returned from a long weekend in Vermont. On Sunday morning, I participated in a two-hour new owner's training ride (I took possession of a 2016 LR4 in November 2015) at The Land Rover Experience School (LRES) at the Equinox Hotel. My driving instructor was David Nunn, a fine fellow and an excellent teacher. This was my third overall... More

My friend and I split the full-day trip, and we had such a great time that he felt confident enough to take his own vehicle on the public trails, after completing the Land Rover Experience obstacles. We started with Chad in the morning, learning about the VERY capable full-size Range Rover, and the various technologies available when driving it off-road.... More

When I heard about this Land Rover program, I knew I had to get it for my husband! We did the all day program. In the a.m. Chad took us around their private course in a brand new $120k Range Rover where we got to learn the basics and see what this incredible vehicle is capable of! Chad was a... More

My wife and I just got done off-roading with Dave, our guide. He was awesome, patient, and a great teacher. We would highly suggest this to anyone spending time in Manchester. A MUST DO!

Truly amazing time was had by my family at the Land-Rover Driving School. Gene, our instructor, was patient and humorous while challenging us on this amazing, rugged terrain. His knowledge of the vehicle and how to navigate the most difficult conditions was beneficial to all - especially my teenage son. The course is one challenge after another. It is unbelievable...

It was a beautiful day, so why not? My instructor, Chrystyna, took me out behind Equinox Mountain to terrain both rugged and beautiful. She was calm and knowledgeable even in the most washed out vertical track, giving clear concise instruction...and we laughed too; her wry, understated humor was a blast. I left with a deep appreciation for this, its designers,... More

I got a Land Rover Owner's driving experience for Christmas from my husband. I was completely nervous because being on three wheels, plunging down steep cliffs and tilting sideways in the car are not my idea of a good time. That has changed now. The instructors know the capabilities of these cars and also can gauge people's comfort and experience.... More

Even for a backseat passenger! My husband really wanted to do this, and since it was -6 and just. too. cold. to. ski, we agreed it'd be fun to try the 1hr lesson. So 3 adults (including my 70+ yr old dad) piled into the backseat and after a brief lesson from the AMAZING instructor Chrystyna, my husband took the... More
