I Have been riding at Bank Farm for 8 years now, I have only ever considered moving to another riding school at my time riding here, but changed my mind when I thought about how much I enjoy riding here.
The staff are always polite and helpful and I've found they have really helped me succeed as a rider. I lost my confidence in jumping last year from a relatively nasty fall and my class teacher has been excellent in helping me literally 'get back on the horse' and regain my confidence, the horses are well looked after and seeing as I used to volunteer at the stables I know they are well groomed and fed. There are various activities that you can take part in private lessons, hacks, walk outs and group lessons, I feel the horses are matched well with riders. As I am in the more experienced classes I feel that they really think about which horse I will benefit from when riding.
It may not be the most classiest of institutes but it does the job, and you should not be deceived by it's slightly shabby appearance.
The horses are easy to get used and I would really recommend this school regardless of your experience.
