“Absolutely Awesome”

Written on: 11/08/2013 by Bonnyisawesome (1 review written)

I have been riding at Old Mill for nearly 4 years and have never gotten bored of it. All the people there are friendly and always willing to help. Most ponies there are really nice and easy to handle - perfect for the RDA lessons they hold. The lessons are really fun as well. We do a huge variety of things - Flatwork to jumping, Games to Hacking out - you'll never get bored. I used to be scared to try riding new horses but the instructors have helped me build up my confidence and now I am happy… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/07/2013 by jessrose (2 reviews written)

Old mill stables is brilliant. I have had a horse there for several years now, the highly trained staff are always there to help. No matter what the problem someone is there to help. The stables are very well looked after and never dirty. The attention to detail in every area of the yard is despicable, it is outstanding how hard the staff try to make everything the best it can be. The lessons are brilliant, they are split into age and ability groups each thought by a very skilled instructor who… Read Full Review

“Incredible school!!”

Written on: 23/07/2013 by Trenarren321 (1 review written)

I have been riding at old mill for 10 years now and I can not express enough to you how much I have learnt there. The horses are the best horses in the world, they have great manners and they are so patient with inexperienced riders. Being at old mill and bought out my positive side. I have now got so much confidence I don't know what to do with it. The staff there are ever so helpful and are always willing to help you if ever you are in doubt or are in need of help. All the school holidays… Read Full Review

“Absolutely Brilliant”

Written on: 21/02/2013 by sillysaint (1 review written)

I have had horses of my own for roughly 4 years now and I have kept each of them at livery at Old Mill stables. The care and attention to detail spent on each and every one of the horses is amazing. The staff are friendly, approachable and always willing to help. The yard is kept clean and there is always a friendly atmosphere provided by the staff and riders who regularly attend or are just there for a one time ride. Overall I think the service provided by the yard is wonderful, which is… Read Full Review

“Fantastic riding school!”

Written on: 19/02/2013

I have been riding for Old Mill Stables for almost 8 years and I have loved every minute. There is a wide range of horses and ponies to suit everyone, depending on ability and size. The horses are all in great condition due to the excellent care from staff. The horses are groomed daily and are checked regularly. All staff are very knowledgable, meaning the horses are always well looked after. Everyone is friendly and approachable, creating a happy atmosphere on the yard. Next, the riding… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/02/2013 by Taraandboy (1 review written)

After riding at Old Mill for over half of my life now I would like to express what an incredible yard it is. There is a small group of well educated, kind and patient instructors who support each and every child/adults riding needs. There are people who regularly attend riding lessons at old mill, and some who have livery spaces at Old Mill, me being one of them. The livery horses are bought and paid for by their owners and as I currently have two horses at the yard I can inform you that it has… Read Full Review

“Terrible if your a working parent that does have a nanny”

Written on: 29/10/2012 by Horsemadmum12 (1 review written)

I took my 5 year old son to old mill stables and received the most horrible welcome I think I've ever had! We were only after some info about how to join the centre as my son is very keen to start riding and as it was half term I had a day off so thought it would make a nice day for him. However... I was told that unless I paid £17 per day for two days during that week for a assessment lesson for my son, which was Tuesday and Thursday he couldn't ride... I asked if he could come and do this… Read Full Review

I am a working parent that does not have a nanny?! I am deeply concerned that you work in a hospital. Old Mill Riding Stables is absolutely fantastic. There is calmness,organisation and safety in the yard. The staff are incredible with their guidance and knowledge available to anyone who wishes to learn. My children waited patiently on the waiting list along with all the other children with dreams of riding. 8 Years on I could not recommend this riding stable highly enough. Thank goodness you will not be returning.

When you write a review, you tend to be honest about your experience, which I was. As for working in a hospital, I have no choice to who I treat but I do have a choice where my hard earned money is being spent! So the next time you respond to someone's views , be mature about it, you do the yard no favours acting like a teenage girl who was told no, as this just shows the type of people that attend, and to be honest, I'm glad I won't be going back as we have found a brilliant yard that has time for its clients and future clientele

My mature comment expressing concern about the nature of your work for the NHS was simply to highlight that you must have a good understanding of waiting patiently for a quality service. Re 'acting like a teenage girl who was told no' please do reflect on your review and 'pot calling kettle black' jumps to mind. P.s I am not a teenager yet and I continue to learn from the wonderful adults around me who can spell.

“Fantastic!!! :D”

Written on: 08/07/2012 by hshay (1 review written)

Old mill stables is a great riding school, all the horses are very well cared for and are not overworked. I have kept my own horse there for 3 years and I know that she is in good hands when I go away. I also have a regular lesson which I really enjoy. Many of the riders that come for a one off ride, end up coming back as regulars. You are put into lessons with people that are of the same standard as you and the instructors are really nice and always praise you and tell you what you could do… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/03/2012

I rode at Old Mill for two years and I did learn a lot. I loved the horses and they all seemed very well looked after, I enjoyed being able to tack up and groom the ponies myself which wasn't the case where I used to ride, Wheal Buller where they didn't let you do anything except ride the horses. I enjoyed the variety of our lessons. I did however find I was put I a lesson with children a lot younger than me and we progressed very slowly. Also the instructors were very critical of what I was… Read Full Review

I have been going to old mill for 2 years now and cannot think of a single fault! I think this is the best riding center/stables in the area.All of the horses are propley cared for, if there is even a small sign of illness the vet is called imediately.The teaching is fantastic and i have learnt a lot. They don't rush you into things that are not your level and always listen to your questions. They alway put you on horses that are right for your size. All the horses are lovely, there is a wide… Read Full Review
