“Unprofessional”

Written on: 05/07/2015 by AnaMaher (1 review written)

I recently had an hour long lesson at the Holy Tree which was an experience best forgotten. The staff were incapable of planning a lesson, which was extremely unstructured and rushed. One of our horses refused to trott under any circumstances, and after much effort was put down to rider inability. Not the nicest approach, especially when said rider is experienced. In addition to this, our instructor repeatedly tried to cut our lesson short on numerous occasions. After the first attempy i was… Read Full Review

“Dangerous and unprofessional ”

Written on: 14/06/2015 by Horsesgotcourses (1 review written)

Hideous place, I think they play on the novice. I was shocked to learn they put novice riders on ponies backed for only a few weeks with gawpy primary school kids leading them. The pinnacle of the experience was seeing the instructor kick a horse up it's backside to get it in canter. Disgraceful… Read Full Review

“Rather go elsewhere”

Written on: 04/06/2015 by allybum (1 review written)

Not very professional establishment, only out to take your money, be careful not to purchase vouchers as they dont tell you that if you dont use them you cant get a refund. the owner and the staff disclose the bare minimum and lack any sense of customer service or goodwill. If you plan to take a child there for lessons think twice. Even the instructors walk out which shows what a poor business it is, money grabbing with no interest in building a rapor just how much they can take. disgusting… Read Full Review

“An honest review about this place”

Written on: 28/07/2013

Upon arrival of this establishment I have to say it all looked lovely. The reason we were there was because I had booked my son in for his very first riding lesson and this riding school was the nearest and in addition to that the lessons were very reasonably priced, but low and behold their has never been a truer saying than you get what you pay for! When we first stepped out onto the car park I noticed their was broken glass which I had to tell my 7 year old… Read Full Review

That's nothing! When I had a pony on loan there I was treated terribly!! Sometimes, I was so busy looking after everyone else's horses that I didn't even get to see my own! And when my ponies neighbour, poppet, got pregnant, they gave the girl loaning her paddy(my loan pony) when there was plenty of other horses available! And after all of that she got a different horse because paddy was too slow... And then her excuse was that paddy was lame so I couldn't have him anyway but I was long gone after my poor boy got abscess! £175 a month was not worth it!

Good to see a real review posted. There is definitely a few things not quite right about this place, my daughter always complained about the staff and at first I thought nothing of it, I recently expressed some concerns and received an earful of abuse so it's definitely worth paying a bit more and moving onto one of the more reputable schools.
