I have been riding at willow farm for a couple of years now and i have to say it is brilliant the staff are very friendly, and the horses are well schooled .
There are many varieties of horses big and small, there are occasions accidents here and there and a couple of kickers, but they always check if the rider and the horse hasn't been hurt or injured.
The staff do let children help out around at the stable at weekends with grooming, tacking etc, they do day courses for children to help with stable duties and management(Have your own personal horse for the day) which is 9:00 - 4:00 £40.00.
They help with confidants building and balance, they will never put you on a horse or pony that you are uncomfortable with riding or anything unsafe.
If horses are unsafe for you to ride they will pull them out of work imidieltely, after the lesson i love to help out around the yard with stuff like grooming, untacking, cleaning up and putting ponies into the field.
The stable never over work the horses they only let the horses work for 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon for the horses to have a groom and have a drink and a rest.
There are different instructors the best ones i think myself are 3. Dawn,2. Mclier? and 1. Ruth.
Its only £16.00 children, £19.00 adults for 1 hour which is good for the things you get in the lesson.
Unfortunately, there are sometimes too many in the lesson which of course means you don't get much in and don't learn.
At the day courses if you can get in you are able to chose your favorite horse on the particular day, as well as that they do different levels: starter days,bronze days,silver days and gold days for the most experienced people.
they do week courses where you come every day of the week to do things like dressage,hacking,showjumping etc.
I definitely recommend this stable for anyone that is willing to learn to ride and learn quickly, they do different lessons for begginers and experienced riders.
Adults and children will not be disappointed and should go the extra mile what ever the weather.
