Written on: 03/09/2008

I highly recommend people to come to Holmescales Riding Centre because the staff are always friendly and remember everyones name, (unlike some riding schools!), and they have over 25 excellent horses and ponies with fantastic riding facilities avalible and there's also now a pony club for those wanting to learn more about looking after horses (mucking out stables, cleaning horses, earning badges, etc).
They offer free use of riding hats, provided by the school, and riding sticks if your horse… Read Full Review

I have ridden at Holmescales in Cumbria on numerous occaisions and have always felt that I have received full value for money and full satisfaction. The staff are really helpful and friendly and I always felt right at home - the atmosphere is fantastic.

I would thoroughly recommend this fantastic… Read Full Review
