“Very good value for money and excellent horses”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

I visited Wayside yesterday with three friends for a two hour hack through Windsor Park, using an offer from Groupon earlier this year. We are intermediate riders, who take riding lessons together most weeks and happily jumping a small course of SJ on a well schooled horse.

On arrival at the yard, the staff were friendly and helpful and explained how the day would work and which horses we would be riding. The horses were loaded up on the lorry and we followed in the car down to the park - what a fantastic start! No road work required so a full 2hrs at the park!

Our horses came off the lorry beautifully groomed and with well kept tack. We mounted up and set off into the park for some beautiful scenery and lovely riding. One of the horses was a bit keen but our ride leader (I'm sorry I forget her name already?!) was superb and made sure that within an hr my friend had fallen in love with him, and his keeness! My horse was a little excited too but there's nothing wrong with that! In any event, after several lovely canters (and a few excitable bucks!) we kept to a nice walk for the reminder of the ride to make sure everyone was comfortable - this meant that we were delayed getting back to the lorry. How lovely to see a yard that listens to the riders and adapted the ride accordingly!

All in all, a wonderful day - we all agreed we'll be going back when the weather is a bit better although considering how much it's rained recently, the ground was still very good for quite a few lovely long canters. Thank you for a lovely day!

“Quality horses, friendly yard, fabulous rides out in the Great Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

I have been riding at Wayside since May and from the very start was impressed with the superb quality of the horses. The friendly Wayside staff are great at matching horses to peoples ability but won't find any plodding riding school cobs here, instead you more likely to end up on a responsive, well-schooled ex-show jumper whether you are having a lesson (private or group), hacking out on the local bridle paths or out in Windsor Great Park for an escorted two hour ride.

The Great Park rides are amazing and cater for everyone from a complete beginner through to experienced riders. I have been on several now, every time a different route but always guaranteed lots of opportunity to canter. The rides and routes are tailored to the ability and wishes of the clients and if necessary the group is split so that those only wanting to walk/trot can go on a different circuit. The Great Park is huge and the landscape varied so a typical ride will traverse meadows, sand tracks, woodland paths and even lakes!
