“Poor customer care.”

Written on: 22/11/2012 by helengraves14 (1 review written)

My nine year old daughter has been attending Barnston stables for a few months now after being so disheartened with riding schools on the Wirral. We have been really happy up until today. My daughter caught a sickness bug and was violently ill during the night. When I phoned the center to cancel her lesson for that evening in 71/2 hrs time. I was told they needed more notice in future. The young man on the telephone was totally unsympathetic, arrogant and rude. He told me I obviously haven't… Read Full Review

All of the horses and ponies at Barnston are nice but they are exactly that, horses and ponies and as for all animals are unpredictable. It is not ideal to have that many ponies in half of the school and I hope a lesson has been learned.

The owners are rarely on the yard and what they get up to behind closed doors has nothing to do with how the riding school is ...

“My 7 year old Daughter began her lessons at Barnston...”

Written on: 26/01/2011

My 7 year old Daughter began her lessons at Barnston Riding center in September 2010. BIG MISTAKE!! The lessons started off okay in the indoor arena with approx 6 horses to a lesson and 1 teacher. I thought this seemed acceptable. I was charged £14 for the lesson and told if i was not going to lead the horse myself I would have to pay an extra £3 for one of the young stable hands to do it!
My Daughter had fortnightly lessons and after the first one, each lesson became more and more of a… Read Full Review

glad im not the only one that feels the same about this riding school.booked a lunge lesson to concentrate on my balance ,didnt get lunge lesson instead put on a spooky 15hh horse that was frightened of its own shadow,got thrown once in the indoor school and again outside. Total time in saddle 5mins and i called it a day,no refund and no chance of ever returning. Used to ride there in the 70's and my god how things have changed.
