“They could definitely improve...”

Written on: 01/10/2015 by Julien481 (1 review written)

When i started riding there i felt it was the best place ever, since my friend had been complaining about her riding school. I advanced up through classes quite quickly and enjoyed lessons with my instructors for the several years i was there.
If there's one thing i noticed, the instructors of course had their favorites, however i can't complain as whenever i asked to ride a specific horse, they did normally let me ride it the next week.
I did notice that the horses stables were lacking in bedding, other yards i have been to provided plenty of straw/shavings, i noticed the ponies weren't groomed regularly as stuff would be stuck to their hooves before lessons and there would be mud on their coats, and their stables were dirty.

My class was normally quite small maybe 5/6 people riding each week, but towards the end of my time there my class was filled to the maximum with older ponies which were used in beginner lessons and a lot of younger riders were put into this class, where we would normally ride the bigger/newer horses.. that lesson was "fun" having youngsters who could barely canter. I felt that it could have been organised a bit better.
I did go through a good couple of instructors who came and went. I felt some of the staff were quite rude and bitchy, there were only few members of staff whom i felt provided excellent customer service.
But, coming up to the end of my time there i felt the place became more obsessed with how much money it could make, thus squeezing as many people into a class as possible completely disregarding their level of skill. I've never once recommended this riding centre to anyone.
