This riding school is an all around quite good school. You can start lessons their, and most the staff their are friendly. I started riding lessons about 5 years ago. I am now in the top level of riding, which is good I guess. I go every Saturday for a half an hour lesson which costs £9.50. They have a range of different horses, but all the horses are capable of jumping and doing the overall basics. They are mainly healthy, but not too clean. The arena is big enough to jump and canter, but it could be bigger. Its also annoying when it rains. Its good in the summer though, because they have a field set up with high and low jumps. But only levels 4 and 5 (intermediate and advanced intermediate) can access this field. They provide good teaching, but normally do the same things every week. The best time I would suggest to ride at is on a friday night because the leader is nice,funny, encouraging and does different things each week e.g jumping, canterwork, circles, blocks, games, bounces etc.
They also provide stable manegment days, where they teach you all the things you need to know about caring for a horse. I go to these sessions about 6 times a year.
If you want to know more visit their website.
Overall they are a good riding school, but could do with some more professionalism, more staff to clean and the horses could do wih equal rest (some get way more rests than others)
