Clearly the person who wrote this review does not understand the fact that some horses with a full winter coat do not need a rug on (depending on their type). Of course this means that they cannot be groomed to the extent that a stable kept horse can be but it certainly does not affect their well being. The horses at Bank Farm Riding School are well cared for and they have so many because they cater for so many different levels of ability. They also have hay in the field and so are not, as it is put "eating their own poo"! The fact that this person considers their ability improved suggests to me that they now ride animals which take no technical ability to control, which is what many riding schools have. The horses at Bank Farm , although safe, actually take riding and do not lull you into a false sense of security and the staff are all experienced enough to match the horse to the rider's capability. This is regardless of the age of the staff, as anyone who knows anything about riding realises that experience is the necessary quality to have! I learnt to ride at the farm and worked there for many years. Although i no longer go,when i visit i see many a familiar face because people from years ago still ride there now. I now work for a professional showjumper and travel internationally on a regular basis, a job which i never would have had the opportunity to do were it not for the experience that i gained being at bank farm for the best part of 13 years.
