Although I have not been to Matchmoor Riding School for two years, I've always recommended it to friends and family who are keen to learn all about the equine sport. I have watched Matchmoor progress over many years.
Due to myself having many horses over many years (mainly for jumping and cross country), i tend choose Matchmoor for hacking out around the country side/bridle paths. There are quite a few trails to choose from.
I find the staff to be friendly, knowledgeable with many years... (read more)

I have been at Matchmoor for 7 years now and i love it as much now as i did when i first started. Before i went there i looked at several other riding schools but none were as good as Matchmoor There is a great selection of horses to ride which have all helped to improve my riding as i can ride anything from a 13hh to a 15.3hh due to my size, height and experience, i get to ride the easy ponies like chico and rags and i also get the difficult ones like bracken and seamus. I have been taught... (read more)

I've now ridden at this centre for just under 8 years, i've seen horses and staff come and go. I feel that the team of horses and the relationship with staff at matchmoor now is a very well thought through and well developed. Its easy for people to come on this site and 'rant' away about rocky feild, cramped stables or bad grooming. However if they didn't notice the ridding school is situated in the moors, where there are rocks. Horse's are wild animals, they may be domesticated on the yard... (read more)

I think Matchmoor is a perfectly nice riding school, with good instrucors and gentle ponies. It isn't the cleanest school ever, the horses don't get groomed loads, but they do get a lot of time out in the fields which are fairly large. I had to leave because I started loaning my pony and it would cost too much, but if not I would definately still be riding there. My friend now rides there, and she loves it! She is taught by laura, and so was I. She was very good. There is free boot and hat... (read more)

I can honestly say this is the best place I have ever ridden at and would not change riding schools for anything! ALL instructors and yard staff are lovely, very friendly and helpful and there is a fantastic range of horses and ponies for all abilities. Owner is lovely and really will go out of her way to accomodate your needs and there are many fantastic opportunities for you to improve your horse care and knowledge as well as your riding. Great summer shows, both jumping and Dressage... (read more)

Good lessons for the price, two rides in one day. hacks are good.
some of the riding instructors were quite harsh. i felt uncomfortable with some, but perhaps that was just an impression. (read more)

I absolutely love Matchmoor, I had lessons with Sarah until she left for Australia which we were gutted about! But now I have Keeley and I can honestly say ive never had so much fun riding. The lessons are great I get to push myself and challenge myself whilst learning and enjoying the lessons. We laugh loads and learn loads its a great balance. ~I would recommend this school to children and adults alike. Whether you are a beginner or advanced Matchmoor still provides the opportunities to... (read more)
