“Good but could be even better ”

Written on: 06/09/2014

Bank farm is a lovely place to ride & you often get a lot of things done in the lessons, the horses&ponies are absolutely amazing and always give their all&the staff and leaders are lovely and are always happy to help you out when you need them....however it often feels like the instructors would rather be on their phones than teach & they tell you to do things without actually explaining how to do it. Although, when they aren't engaged in their phones, they push you and give you constructive… Read Full Review

“Pros and cons ”

Written on: 03/08/2014

My daughter has been riding here for a few years now and really enjoys the lessons and hacks that she has done. The horses appear to be well look after considering they have a difficult task of looking after so many. The staff are always polite and considerate towards customers such as myself however, some staff members can be bitchy and demanding towards the young girls which help out. Additionally, the instructors are friendly and the majority provide interesting lessons to watch and for the… Read Full Review

“So far so good :)”

Written on: 17/02/2014

I have owned ponies for 30 years & at present have a youngster I am breaking/schooling for my young son's. Just started sending my 4 yo to Bank Farm for lessons since our old pony was pts & so he has no one to learn on at home anymore. After only a couple of lessons I can say I will continue to send him to bank farm, ponies are so well behaved (unlike mine!) & my boy loves going! After every lesson asks when his next one is. The girls that lead the kids seem to be enjoying what they are doing… Read Full Review

“Could do better,”

Written on: 22/05/2013

I started riding at bank farm and found that my riding improved considerably and then I got to a point where there was no improvement and no other class to advance to. Although the classes at the start tested me when I became a better rider I felt I was doing the same thing week in week out and had no improvement. After a year of riding there I moved on to another school where they focused on your riding as an individual and how to improve your technique, not just teaching you how to sit on a… Read Full Review

“pros and cons ”

Written on: 23/04/2013

Bank Farm is such a friendly riding school where everyone appears to get on very well. the staff are all friendly except one or two who appear to be quite demanding to the children who help there. They give the children an opportinity to get work experience and when they lead the beginners they are always helpful and teach the children well. however, some seem too young to be taking money and teaching lessons but are all qualified. They deal well with the horses and have a varierty to suit… Read Full Review

“Top riding school”

Written on: 15/03/2013

After a nasty accident 10 years ago at a different riding school, the instructors at Bank Farm helped me to get my confidence back. They made sure I had the same horse each time so that I could build my confidence, which was just what I needed. The staff are friendly, and it's good value for money. Very impressed… Read Full Review

“HORRIBLE! DIRTY! NEVER AGAIN!”

Written on: 11/03/2013

My daughter had quite a lot of riding lessons before she started to not enjoy it as much , the staff and child helpers are bitchy and rude , the horses and tack are uncared for and the yard is very messy. The days are unstructured and a rip off like we paid £40 for a own your own pony day and my daughter did ABSOLUTLEY nothing she got a 15 minute ride that was cut short and on a horse that was lazy and a complete waste of time. Them she swept up a load of horse manure off the yard because… Read Full Review

I totally disagree, the staff And kids are very helpful and do teach the children but if they don't listen then they won't learn. And as for been lazy everytime I go to the yard the staff are doing the best to try and tidy up but it's a working yard what so you expect to be able to eat your tea off it

i disagree i think u are just snotty nosed idoit who thinks every one should run round after u i have a horse there and i have one on full loan we still have to sweep out side our livery stables but i do think that some of the child helpers need sorting out , i have worked on another yard and we had only 10 miuntes to sweep the yards and there were 5 yards to do and we had to muck out 50 horses by 10am and we started at 9.30 and they had to be spotless or we would be out on our ears and the beds were huge with 2 metre size banks U try doing that so stop being an snotty idiot respect i have at bank farm for 15 years and they are brill so just stop saying bad things about it u snotty nosed idiot!!!

part of owning your own horse is to deal with sweeping up manure and doing all the jobs that te stable hand girls do all the time so dont complain if you have paid for that and been dreaming about what would happen !

“Bank farm is a dirty tacky farm where animals are...”

Written on: 15/11/2012

Bank farm is a dirty tacky farm where animals are treated badly.Children work from eight in the morning till five in the afternoon in return for a lesson which to me is slave labour. When i went there i couldnt find any adults who should be supervising and one child was shouting and smacking the pony just for the fun of it. The ponies i stroked were sweating intensely from being overworked, i think this place should be checked over… Read Full Review

“Can't stand it..”

Written on: 24/10/2012 by BreakingPoint (1 review written)

I've been riding for almost 10 years now and I was looking for a new riding school. I went to check out Bank Farm, and absolutely hated it. There were 4 ponies stuck in one tiny stall, flies everywhere and it was a tip! I know some people that DO go there, but I wouldn't recommend it. In the fields, there's dung everywhere. Overall, it's simply a horrible place. I don't know what the ponies&horses are like but judging by the maintenance of the yard, I'm guessing not very good… Read Full Review
