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...

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 more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

Croft End is a very well run stables. The staff are mostly friendly & all have good qualifications. However it is quite expensive for livery, and don't think I'd keep my horse there; although it has one indoor, one outdoor and good hacking, it charges like it has a huge indoor, three outdoors, a walker, a solarium, fantastic hacking & a cross country course!
On the other hand, i have yet to find a riding school as good as that one. The range of horses is fantastic - slow ones, fast ones, big... (read more)

The teachers are very efficient and can give constructive criticism nicely.
One negative about the school is that it is a touch expensive.

Well all i can say is that croft end it great. At croft end all the staff are excellent and the horses they always put you on a horse/pony that they think is right for you.

I have been using this centre for many years and can only say good things. The comments from others about unhelpful staff are totally untrue - never have any of the staff acted in a disrespectful way. The only time they have spoken bluntly to clients is to tell them to get off a horse when they are repeatedly not doing as asked on a lesson and the tutor has felt that the horse is being used inappropriately. Croft End far outshines other local riding establishments in the area, (read more)
