Amazing hacking
Aug 2021 • Family
A lovely, warm, family-run riding centre. They made sure that you were on the horse best suited to your needs. The riding was fantastic: amazing hacking on bridle paths and across the downs. The horses were beautifully cared for and very well behaved. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and we will certainly be riding here next time we come.

We had a lovely time with the gorgeous horses and the wonderful team at Hill Farm. The hour ride was just lovely, a great way to see the lovely area! Huge thanks to the fabulous Jess, lovely Neve and William - who me and my husband Justin agreed we could have talked to all day. Everyone made us feel at ease and the horses (especially my Sharmin) were just so gentle and patient. A must experience. Loved it! Stay awesome you guys!!!! Much love from family Frost

Poor service and no refund!
Jul 2021 • Family
Booked for the family to ride here in late July. We phoned to rebook as our daughter presented with covid type symptons and initially they hung up saying they were too busy and cut me off mid sentence. Later in the day they berated us for following government guidelines. Apparently I need to heffer to the T&Cs on the their website, yet you can't access it!! Book at your own risk is all I can say!

Absolutely amazing experience!! As an old rider I was thrilled to be back on a horse after so many years. Jess was an amazing girl, with a beautiful soul, and she made me feel very confident on the horse back again 🙏🏽❤️ Thanks you so much. This meant more than you can imagine for me. Brought me back to my childhood/teenage years!

Take care xxxx

Great family run business. Friendly, fun and knowledgeable. Jess and her family are passionate about heir horses and it is a pleasure to ride with them. Their staff/ trainees are kind, supportive and helpful. They cater for all levels well worth checking out. Plus feels great to support a local business. Win win!

What a lovely place to visit and share a great horse riding experience with everyone around you!

Very very friendly and welcoming staff from the second we arrived. Whilst they dealt with their morning session we relaxed in the sun with their dogs roaming the yard which were as friendly as a dog could be.

We were then asked to fill in our forms and to pick out a helmet to ride with before the horses came out.

The horses are so well looked after and all looked absolutely beautiful.

The staff were all so friendly and helpful and made sure that everyone was comfortable with everything before the ride began.

The route was a mixture of roads, alleys and field with both trotting and walking and an all around very safe ride with the staff riding along side you keeping the horses under control.

This is definitely the place to go if you want a pleasant and fun horse riding experience.. we will definitely be coming again when we next visit the island!

Thank you so much for your hospitality

First time at the stables and won’t be the last!
Jul 2021 • Family
My teenage daughter rode for the first time at the stables since pre-Covid. we love everything about the yard, Jane and her daughter and these lovely horses and spaniels. We hope to become regulars and learn from who we think seem to brilliant at their job…you might even get me back on a horse. Thank you Hill Farm. See you next time!

Lovely ride!
Jul 2021 • Couples
Having been a horse owner but not having ridden recently I decided to go for a hack with Hill Farm. I went with my husband and was mounted on a lovely, good tempered, incredibly well behaved mare who coped with my lack of fitness beautifully. She didn’t put a foot wrong. Neve led the ride with skill and good humour making us all feel safe and comfortable.

The staff and owners are all very pleasant and the horses and their condition a considerable cut above other establishments I’ve been to.

I would definitely recommend Hill Farm!

Booked this as a treat for myself, my partner, my brother and his girlfriend as we were camping for a few days on the iow, this was a total highlight. I'm an experienced rider but the other three are relative beginners, and we were all given horses which perfectly suited our weights and ability. I had a lovely time on Cracker who was super forward and a dream to ride, and the others rode Marcus, Sid and Missy, who all looked after their riders perfectly, knew their job and behaved beautifully in traffic and on the gorgeous footpath route we took. The horses are immaculate-looking and are obviously very well-loved and cared for, the staff were helpful and really friendly. It was the perfect way to share something I love with less experienced riders. Thank you so much jayne and team, we will definitely be back!
