I used to go every single week but stopped! I realised that if you compare it to any other riding school it's poor! It's good if you want to make friends because most of my lessons were overly crowded! The staff are alright but some times quite rude. The horses are alright aswel! The only horse that I used to want to go on was Meg as she was a plodder and hardly moved! There is one horse that is there that is absolutely crazy! His name is Melvyn and every single lesson that I have been in with him, he has disrupted the lesson! Don't get me wrong, some of the horses are okay but the ones that are great belong to people so you can't ride them! One thing that really annoyed me was that all the instructors were interested in was jumping! Mostly all my lessons we were jumping! There is one instructor called Paul and he is a good teacher, he concentrates on the rhythm and you bonding with the horses! If you are you for a one off or for someone's birthday it's good! But I wouldn't recommend going every week as it is very expensive and sometimes boring!
They sometimes hold jumping events which are good as you can enter different classes with your own horse or a riding school horse! Again it is expensive but it i good as a starter, if you are new to the world of showing!
The hacks are good because you get to see lovely views! It deffonetly boosted my confidence for a while! This was the place were i started to ride horses so I would recommend coming here if you want to start!
The rooms are also very clean.
There are lots of different horses here and I would go again in a few months as it is getting refurbished the now! I think in a few years it will have improved a lot!
