Booked easily for daughters 10th Birthday. Once located, it was a wonderful afternoon. Spent at least 45 mins on pony, learning how to do a basic ride and controlling the reins. Each of the 5 children had someone to lead the pony which made children very comfortable riding. Another 45 minutes or so spent learning to groom the pony and visiting the other horses in the stable. Friendly staff. Glad I spent the extra money on each child having their own pony to ride. Very enjoyable experience.

Pony Party. All things considered, I would recommend it, but learn from our experience... The party kind of started driving up the access road (we went in Jan..) Pot holes galore, all full of water and mud, mostly invisible. The area around the equestrian centre is pretty rough and ready and is boarded by the A3 on one side. Drive to just before the end of the road and turn right. The area is a mud bath and your car will get covered... Everyone should wear wellies during the winter season. We found the office (nice and cosy) and checked in. The instructor was very nice as were the pony leaders and our party was in good hands. The party introduced the children to the ponies and they went away and experienced walking and trotting and lots of fun racing too. Then afterwards they learnt something of the tasks in looking after horses and the stables. Now, as the other reviews say, the party room was poor, very poor. Don't bother to have one if it is poor, you have been warned. Take hot chocolate with you and drive your party elsewhere to conclude the party..

Booked a pony party for 6 13yr olds! Good communication and administration from the start. Girls were all fitted with their riding hats and sent out to be matched up with horses. Each girl had a helper leading the horse and they were all lovely, friendly and enthusiastic. My younger daughter wasn't involved in the pa
rty and they asked her if she wanted to have a go on one of the ponies. My daughter was very scared after a previous bad experience, the lady who took her made her feel so safe that she now wants lessons!!! Girls also enjoyed the stable management part of the party. All in all an amazing day and all party goers emjoyed themselves immensely. My only criticism would be the portacabin that can be used as a party room (we didn't use) but it didn't look particularly inviting. It could be jazzed up a bit with bunting and re-arrangement of tables :-)

I go riding about once a week there and am delighted with the equestrian center. They have lovely, caring staff and amazing horses and ponies to ride. The best instructor there is Remee as she is often my instructor. Remee always gets the best out of you and your horse you are riding. The horses there are available to all types of rider, beginner, intermediate, advanced and help you further your education in riding. You can even take Stable Management lessons. It is amazing, I so recommend it. Full marks!

The lessons are fun and enjoyable. The staff are very dedicated and the horses and ponies are fun to ride!
They recently became a pony club centre which is a great way for children to develop their knowledge of looking after and riding ponies.

I recommend it!
