Hiya i was reading through some of the reviews and i dont see how the horses are treated badly. customers only see a tiny bit of the school anyway so i dont see how they can judge the whole farm on that!
The ponies live out in the summer in a huge field with loads of grass and they love it out there, we untack them as soon as they are finished and hose them down on hot days, there is always food available and we go around filling haynets for them. there is automatic water fillers and we have buckets scattered around the yard.
Yes the lessons on at the weekend are busy but what do you expect? it shows how well the stables are doing, each child has a leader helping them to steer until they dont need one anymore.
As you progress you can ride in the field doing cross country and the horses really love it they pull you forwards to canter to the jumps with their ears pricked.
i think bank farm is the best and people need to get a grip cos we arent exactly struggling for customers but we need these rumours swashing now!!
