“Croft End is Completely Value For Money”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by 193Curtis (1 review written)

Croft End Equestrian Centre in Bardsley, Oldham, is a truly exceptional Riding School, College and Livery Yard! My boy is always looked after to the highest standard and i still get to do whatever i wish to do with him. I grant you Croft End is strict, this is only due to safety, as i and many people would rather be safe than sorry. Expenses, nobody is ever able to keep a horse in peak condition without a large expense. Not only are horses expensive animals anyway, but the cost of the care they… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/03/2014

I have had my first horse on working livery at Croft End for over 11 years and have recently with the help, guidance and support of the two sisters bought my second horse who has jjoined the Croft End family. Working full time there is no way I could have horses and balance work, family and my passion my horses. My boys are extremely well looked after by the professional team and I can honestly say they are happy fit and love giving pleasure to all the clients who ride them. Despite a… Read Full Review

“could be better”

Written on: 23/03/2014 by 10Higgins (1 review written)

GREAT FACILITIES AND GREAT HORSES TO RIDE. However, i have heard from my friends that are on livery there that croft end is VERY strict, no free lunging, no jumping bareback, its frowned upon to ride bareback. at the end of the day, you have a horse to have fun on, my friends say they feel like going to the farm is like going to school, too many pointless rules. … Read Full Review

“Don't recommend at all ”

Written on: 14/01/2014

I rode at croft end for about 1 year and I left because I just felt so judged and I felt like I never did anything right. Throughout the whole year I never cantered they kept me on trot for a year, they do not move you along at all! The prices are so high and the instructors always cut the lessons short! When you went up on a Saturday for the day , if it was cold you were bot aloud to wear a coat other that the coat you had to buy that said 'croft end' on it! The farm might look good and clean… Read Full Review

“Rubbish ”

Written on: 20/09/2013

I phoned to rearrange a lesson and they treated me appallingly they said ,I quote :I cant believe you put me with this girl and I don't want her shes a complete nightmare.This treatment over the phone when arranging a horse riding lesson.They probably treat horses better but treat people like something left on their shoe.They will not get business off me in future and its a wonder they are still in business.I had decorators in and needed to rearrange and I think they thought I couldn't hear… Read Full Review

Croft End is the best riding school in the area. The facilities are excellent and they have a range of horses and ponies to suit most ages heights and abilities. The instructors are all British Horse Society qualified. I would recommend Croft End to anyone who wants to learn to ride or who is returning to riding after a break (as I did.)… Read Full Review

“Friendly staff Beautifully kept horses”

Written on: 24/04/2012

I have kept a horse at Croft End and my daughter has kept three at Croft end . She moved from weekly lessons to now being able to go out and compete around the north west. Livery costs are good value,and compare exceptionally well to any thing else in the area, for the service , care, attention to horse wellfare, and facilities.I have not seen a better kept yard anywhere. To keep horses well is never going to be cheap and no one should expect to be able to do it cheaply , you can not expect a… Read Full Review

“Shortchanged on time”

Written on: 28/08/2011

The Sunday morning lesson at 10.00 am is always less than an hour. The payment is for 1 hour and today's has been 45 minutes. The instructor ( Jackie) was late starting by 7 minutes, spent most of the lesson leaning against the fence and drinking tea, and ended the lesson 8 minutes short. A total of 15 minutes or 1/4 of the lesson short. This stable is cheating its customers on a regular basis and people should not pass over their money… Read Full Review

I totally disagree with your comment about been short changed. You have to allow time for mount your pony/horse. This will happen which ever riding school you attend. And as for you comment about jackie do you begrudge her a cup of tea after all she will have just spent the last hour teaching i should know because im on that lesson.( which included mounting my horse) (name removed) is a brillent instructor and while you think she wasnt teaching trust me she will have been.
