    My daughter rides with Pony Club every weekend and absolutely adores the horses, staff and everything about Trent Park. Sometimes staff on the phone can be a bit snappish but that might be because some clients can be a pain too 😅

    Riding in Hyde Park was a fantastic experience. Oberon, my trusty mount, was as calm as could be yet provided a thrilling canter down the famed Rotten Row. Thank you for a great adventure!

    Best trip I have been on by far- felt more of an iman booster whilst kn this trip when I compare with previous umrah trips.
    Horse riding was what I expected but was pleasantly surprised with much more; brotherhood, reminders, reflections, zuhd and much more.
    A real detox away from social media and our phones, as no battery after a couple days which I enjoyed alhamdulillah.
    Felt like a real man around the brothers and was a beneficial life experience. The daily adhkar and recitation of the quran, salah in jamaah was beautiful in the wilderness.
    The camping and food was also top notch.
    I ask Allah ﷻ to preserve our brother and his team for making it all happen and to increase them in dunya and akhirah ameen.

    Absolutely incredible experience. Had just a lovely time riding in Hyde Park. Beautiful, well behaved horses but not ‘plodders’ so good fun for a more experienced rider too. Irina was a brilliant guide and great to ride with, chatty, fun, interesting and great knowledge of the area and the horses.
    Really friendly staff, easy to find and well run stables.
    Would do it again! Thank you

    It was fun for the kids. They experienced something new. It gave them a taste of having lessons in a country style setting. They really enjoyed and wanted to go back again!

    I booked this for my friends hen do and everything about it was great.

    The communication beforehand was excellent, I had lots of questions and changed my mind about dates and numbers a few times but they were very nice about it.

    When we got there all the staff were very patient and friendly, as a lot of the group were new to horse riding and really quite nervous but the horses and staff were fantastic.

    They put on a little lunch and drinks after the morning of riding, which is lovely. Most of our group were vegans and vegetarians but we were catered for exceptionally well!

    Would definitely go here again and would recommend it to anyone.

    I’ve been riding here for almost a year now and I’m also a volunteer helper. I’ve been to a few London riding schools in my time and this is the best I’ve experienced.The school is well managed and the facilities are impressive with a huge indoor school and an outside arena.There’s a good selection of well cared for, well behaved horses and ponies to suit all abilities and the friendly team of senior and junior instructors are dedicated and know their stuff.The school has some great initiatives (the hugely popular “Own a Pony”days and pony rides in the school holidays for example) and it welcomes everyone -You can start your horse riding journey here whether you’re six or sixty!

    I have been going to some Have a Go lessons for the last last 2/3 months. They are really good if you are a complete beginner as you have someone leading your horse and is there with you the whole time. In the lessons you try out walking and sitting and rising trots.
    All staff are nice and usually friendly. However, some are not that social and won't even talk to you for the whole length of the lesson. If you get a good leader, they will check on you and give you extra tips. The lesson instructors usually give personal feedback to everyone in the lesson and will push you further in order to see you get better which is amazing!
    But if you get to a certain point when you can walk and comfortably trot with the leader, I advise you get a private lesson as you won't be able to improve that much in the have a go lessons.
    I had a private lesson with Darren yesterday and it was great! Luckily I had the last have a go with him as well so he knew my level and was able to get straight to what I had to work on. He will make you work in the lesson but you definitely get your money's worth!

    The only downside I found is that it is really hard to get through to them over the phone. Although they will give you a call back on the same day, they called me at a really inconvenient time but I had to take it as then you are not sure when they would try again, if at all! I understand they are busy before lessons, trying to get everyone prepped, but turns out some of the receptionist also just don't like to sit behind the desk and go off to chat to other staff and ignore the phone calls as they come in.

    Possibly one of London's best kept sporting secrets is horse and pony riding in the most unlikeliest of places. Under the Westway interchange of the A40 and Shepherds Bush Cross-link, and just 10 minute cab ride from Paddington, is the Westway Stables. The yard may not be the prettiest (the ground and buildings are the Landlord's responsibility} but the twenty or so animals are well cared for, and the floodlit menage arena is highly serviceable, whist the teaching is superb. The operation is especially suited for children from 4 years and up, and with inclusivity high on its agenda, tailor-made tuition is offered to people with all manner of disabilities. In addition to arena work, on road lessons are held through the urban side streets and hacking is possible. The ethos is to be friendly, down to earth. being ideal for entry level without airs and graces, but high on safety with ease of access to the sport at affordable rates. The yard will loan you boots and hats, and you can choose between school or private lessons. It is not fancy, it doesn't try to be, but it does achieve results and works with you to meet your needs. Oh yes, the stock have largely been bred by the yard, and they are sound and traffic-proof. What’s not to like?

    I am an enthusiastic rider who has weekly lessons at Ealing Riding School. I love my instructor Lou who has given me so many amazing tips helping me with experiences in my lessons and elsewhere. The ponies can be amazing but I find there is usually something frustrating about them, like they bite, they are lazy, they don't like the right rein. Adding to this, I recently went on a riding trip in Spain and learnt to jump in canter. Returning to Ealing I shared this news with them and a video to let them know about my standard. I was hoping to continue jumping there but it has been many weeks and we still have stuck to walk, trot and canter. This is incredibly frustrating as I want to progress and this is not allowing me to use my full potential. Overall, I think they are a nice stables with some really amazing horses, it's just not a place where you get challenged the most.

    Terrible business to deal with. DON'T Trust this company with your money. We are having a Horrendous experience with our booking for June this year booked back in July 22. We are a group booking of 44 spending in excess of £22k on this trip. The initial agent Max Yearwood agreed all the details for a visit to France staying in one location and visiting 4 courses, 2 at Hardelot, Belle Dunne and Aa Saint-Omer all with agreed 10am tee times due to the amount of players needing to get out on the course and then travel back and forth from the hotel. After literally months of continuous chasing for confirmation of details etc our group organiser was told they couldn't secure early tee times as agreed and that we needed to take late tee times or chose another location.
    The suggested other locations in Spain have been exceedingly higher in cost and not viable for the group and the later tee times offered would cause significant travel issues. Our organiser suggested the option of staying in the UK but again Your Golf Travel have said there in no UK availability.
    Having no other option it was suggested that we will have to consider cancellation of the booking but Your Golf Travel is now saying that although they can't deliver what has been agreed cancellation would result in a loss of our deposits £4,400.

    No agents ever seem to be available to speak to or reply to emails. Our organiser has had to resort to contacting staff at Your Golf Travel through linkedin in order to try and get responses or escalation of the issue, it's terrible the service.
