Whilst on holiday we were able to book a ride out or Hack at Holmescale Riding Center for my teenage daughter. It was a fab experience from start to finish. The way my telephone enquiry was dealt with which was helpful and informative without being pushy, a great start. This was followed up on arrival with staff who were expecting us and welcomed immediately putting her at ease . Freya the instructor was a star and could not have been more helpful, loads of knowledge given in just the right… Read Full Review

Fantastic riding centre, very professional and all horses well cared for. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable making it fun all the time you are learning. Whilst waiting to ride I saw a group of children getting on their ponies for a ride and was impressed with the patience and kindness of the staff with what were not the most well behaved children. It was obvious throughout my visit that safety is taken very seriously but also you feel as if they really want you to have fun. Would… Read Full Review

Took my two children here for a riding lesson after having been several times in the past and finding it great. I watched from the side with a group of family and friends, eager to see my children take part in a leisure activity that they both love. The instructor stood in the middle of the arena barking orders at the group of children and did not move nor help them. My son at 8 years old, seemed one of the youngest and the instructor put him at the front of the group of riders. He is not… Read Full Review

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. The hacks and lessons ae equally enjoyable, whether you are galloping across an open field on one of the centre's fantastic horses, or tackling that course of jumps you never thought you'd manage. I would thoroughly recommend this fantastic… Read Full Review

I have ridden at Holmescales Riding Centre whilst on holiday in Cumbria several times. The staff are very friendly and match you carefully to an appropriate horse. The hacks go through beautiful countryside and cater to all abilities. I don't know what the lessons are like as I haven't been on one… Read Full Review
