A huge thank you to all the staff and horses at Wheal Buller! :) This was my first riding holiday, and i can honestly say it was everything I had hoped for and MUCH MUCH more! We had a packed schedule with unlimited riding, hacks, beach ride, flatwork, lunge and dressage lessons and even opportunities to try side saddle and bareback. All the horses are beautiful and the teachers were particularly supportive, considering I am a novice rider! I really learned a lot over the week, the lessons challenged me but I always felt safe and supported.
The accommodation house is really lovely and comfortable, and the hot tub was so welcome at the end of a long day in the saddle! :) The food was really yummy and they were kind enough to make really delicious vegetarian meals just for me....!
I thought it was particularly impressive how the staff encouraged us to learn about, and get involved in the day-to-day care of the horses and stable management while we were there. And also how the staff were able to be flexible about our timetables so that each individual rider could do the schedule of activities that was right for them. It felt like a place where you would be welcomed whatever your age and riding ability, alone or in a group.
Wheal Buller is a fantastic Riding School and i couldn't recommend it more! i certainly hope to come back as soon as I can! :)
