“Very disappointing and heart breaking experience, we...”

Written on: 25/04/2010

Very disappointing and heart breaking experience, we were asked for our height, weight and ability when we phoned to make the booking, but dont think this was even taken into account! Given two sad and sorry looking ponies, one was caked in dry sweat obviously from the day before(as our lesson was at 10am on a sunday) and the other looked like he hadn't been groomed for months! We had 1/2 hour assessment lesson and after were told to take ponies to the back and leave them in any empty stable. We found the so called "stables" they were tin sheds, no flooring just dried mud, no bedding or sawdust, no water for some of the horses, all the ponies are left fully tacked up, and one pony was lying down with his saddle still on! how cruel and uncomfortable!!! all the stables needed mucking out.If you really care about animal welfare do not go here!

I found this review not helpful because... it seems like this message is an attack on the business, I think people who actually take the time and think about what they are writing, if you went at 10am stables arent finished until 1pm and the stables around the back aren't used for the yard horses to sleep in just to keep out of the rain during the day hence why there is no need for bedding. they wont have hay until 11.30 when al the nets are done and distributed. the horses live out so bath them and to over groom would mean brushing out the natural oils in their coats, and in the april months horses are shedding there winter coats. horses are check and sometimes water buckets need to found so that water can be given and most of them arent brought in until 9.30 am. so your comment about the water you haven't been at the yard long enough to make a comment on how things are run, you have not one positive to say, you are welcome to come back and see the yard again and if there are any issues bring them up there so they can be addressed. Bridlewood is a lovely yard with great facilities and offers a great environment for people who love horses to come and meet and ride out together while learning.this one off review is just that a one off that seems to made up, of silly idea. oh and by the way they aren't tin sheds they are wooden stables with sand floors and straw in some.
