Any establishment is judged by it's management and staff and sadly this establishment lacks Quality and consistency. Group lessons
(up to 12) can vary in quality. Often very great mix of ability in these lessons and often horses do not seem well matched to riders. My friend booked private lessons for the same day over a period of several weeks and rarely had the same instructor from one week to the next. What would people say if children had a different teacher in school on a regular basis. This is not a conducive way to learn and improve. When we asked some of the owners about livery (with a view to buying a pony) we received very mixed views but some seemed reluctant to criticis for fear of backlash and being asked to leave. Many criticised the apparent money grabbing attitude rather than animal welfare. ie: if animal welfare was paramount then all horses would be allocated the same amount of bedding for the comfort as the owners horses. Apparently this is not the case.I was told if they required more the price would increase. Although the facilities appear to be quite good ther eis only one small outdoor arena where livery owners can ride as lessons often go on til 9pm. This is a samll space for a livery stock of up to 20+ horses. For several varied reaons we decided not to enquire about livery, there are better yards locally.
