This is just to say thank you to all our clients who have ridden with us for many years, and to all the people who have written comments on this site for all to see. Due to ill health I have had to close the riding school, but our yard is still open and we still have full livery services run by my daughter Jaine. Thank you once again to you all. (read more)

Finlow Hill Riding Stables is just simply brilliant! By far the best that i have EVER been to. Everyone is so welcoming, friendly and just like a family. I have learnt so must from there. The trainers are excellent to teach not only how to ride but what to do on the ground with a horse aswell, it is all at such a high standard! You get so much out of the lesson for your money! Safty is the number 1 priority there.
Thank-you so much for every thing that you have helped me achieve Pat,... (read more)

Such a shame Finlow is closing, i started riding there, and will never forget it, it is incredible, and not only do you learn to ride, but you learn all about the horse's needs and it tack. My instructor- Leanne, i would say was one of the nicest people i have ever met, she's so friendly and boosts your confidence x1234324875632847562384756. She is always cracking jokes and makes the lessons such fun. Katie and Joy are also lovely though! Such a nice environment. In reply to the first review... (read more)

A brilliant establishment with well cared for and turned out horses and facilities with very friendly and helpful staff. Its a great place to have a go at side saddle with fantastic teaching and a price that won't break the bank. A great experience with excellent value for money. In spite of living an hour away I will be becoming a regular and have already recommended Finlow Hill Stables to friends. (read more)

Finlow Hill runs an excellent riding school program. The instructors work hard to make sure that you are always improving, and there is a wide range of horses to suit different riders and their abilities. The horses are kept to a high standard and the yard is very well run. There are also chances for hacks in the surrounding area and a set of cross country field jumps. Definitely worth ringing up and booking an introductory lesson. (read more)

I have been riding at Finlow Hill for four years! I have riden at numerous riding schools and although some are cheaper the tuition you receive is well worth the money! The last comment seems psychic as i know they have also started a new group lesson where booking a block of lessons works out at a discounted rate you should give them a call to find out more!!

Finlow hill stables is an excellent riding school, I'm 13 years old and have made loads of friends my own age.

The horses are well kept and customers are treated with the upmost respect. Very child friendly and I wouldn't go anywhere else!Good... (read more)

Absolutely wonderful place to ride, didn't ride here for long due to medical conditions, but for the few months I was there, I really enjoyed it. The staff were so helpful and pleasant, instructors had real knowledge and explained everything in detail that you didn't understand, a real can do attitude but not forcing you to do anything, also taught you all individually (in a group lesson) as well as just throwing commands out. Horses were very well kept and treated nicely. Also a great value... (read more)

Finlow Hill Stable Is a extremely child friendly facility, I've had my pony on livery their for about 3 years now and i have been riding since i was 7.

Finlow Hill is set in a beautiful area with views across Cheshire, near to the Edge at Alderly with its woods.
The staff are friendly and helpful, and obviously love the horses and ponies in their care, with low staff turnover.

I like the fact that there is a wide range of different size,
ability,temperaments of horses. The riding instructers are very good, they are fun but at the same time you learn alot from them and the lessons are varied. But we tend to ride the same horses each lesson so it would be nice for a change. Apart from that the stables are very good and the horses are well looked after. (read more)

The stables are relatively unknown and some individuals may favour a school with an indoor arena. I am, however, sure that even a fair weather rider would be converted once they see the beautiful views from the outdoor arenas and/or experience a hack across this unspoilt part of the Cheshire countryside. Riding is an outdoor sport and it could be argued that the lack of an indoor arena makes for a more aware and competent rider.
I would recommend the stables to anyone who is looking for... (read more)

Finlow Hill stables is perfect for any rider, novis or experienced, you can have group or private lessons. The horses are fab. Big horses and small horses. Not every horse is not always well behaved but the teachers help you with any kind of problems. Jumping is the best and cantering is also brill.
I have only been riding 1 and a half years and I can jump thanks to all the teachers. You can also go on pony days and choose what ever horse you want to go on and you have to muck out groom and... (read more)
