“If I could give it no stars I would! Extremely rude owner!”

Written on: 20/04/2019 by McClearywi376 (1 review written)

Rang the riding school today to enquire as to whether they had any horses for loan. I was met with an immediate no, is that all.’ (from the person who is apparently the owner). I knew this wasn’t true as I have a friend who loans two of their riding school horses, which at this point I mentioned. Her reply was ‘yeah, but we don’t just loan them out to anybody. Thanks, bye.’ I don’t think anybody has successfully convinced me that I don’t like them within less than a 30 second… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/05/2015 by seDaniel194 (1 review written)

I am very disappointed with this riding establishment,"Is reddish vale riding school only interested in making money? and not interested in teaching I hope not.My daughter has been attending the walk outs,for some weeks and still hasn't been given the correct aids for walk trot halt etc.stirrups are never the correct length "pulling the rains hard is not the correct instruction to halt" just one of many examples, I appreciate it's only a half an hour but this could be made fun and exciting so… Read Full Review

“Don't waste your time here! Awful riding school”

Written on: 11/05/2014 by WesleySantiago (1 review written)

My daughter was on 'walk outs' for over a year before she could start proper lessons, which didn't involve much teaching. She learned more in her first few lessons at Glen Jakes than in the 5 years here. The lessons were very repetitive; walking and trotting, and the hack outs involved walking around busy roads (not in the nearby countryside). She only occasionally cantered and jumping was never an option. Staff were extremely rude and unhelpful, using phones during lessons, not making an effort… Read Full Review

“Don't waste or time/money!!!!!”

Written on: 05/12/2013 by Horseygal101 (1 review written)

Where do I start... Rode/worked here for a year. Riding lesson very dull and repetitive, horses very safe. Owner Jill is horrible and only cares about the money, poor children have to work 8:00-3:00 no payment involved. Staff very snobby (except from Jess and some leaders) and unhelpful. If you want to learn to ride properly go to glen jakes. Noting more to say but a complete waste of time-don't bother going here unless you want to become a prissy rider. They do "loan" horses which means you… Read Full Review

We had a lovely day at the farm, my grandson's 2nd Birthday, we were in a party of 13 adults and 3 children.

“don't waste your money”

Written on: 13/03/2012

The only decent advice I can give you, is not to go here. The owner of the farm is ridiculously rude, ignorant,has no manners or proffesionalism and profit evidently comes above the welfare of the horses and the staff and also her customers. She was often patronising and rude. The horses are very much over worked, not very well looked after, and are often very tired and grumpy which is noticeable. The whole riding school is practically run by children who are way too young. They also are very… Read Full Review

“Brilliant riding school”

Written on: 03/08/2011

I have tried many riding schools to get my daughters into horseriding, and none is more suited to us than Reddish Vale Farm! My daughters ride at Reddish Vale and have now become obssessed with the world of horses and ponies! My eldest(13) rides a named Dennis and my youngest(4) rides a little pony named Presious. My four year old is constantly talking about her leader who she thinks the world of and my 13 year old keeps begging me to buy her a pony! The horses are all very spoilt and clearly… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/04/2010

Very poor managed riding school. The kids were all stressed and grumpy due to being pushed into taking too many rides out,and taking it out on the poor horses in front of the customers. The owner jll was very unprofessional in her manner and not at all approachable. word gets around and have heard similar comments by different people. The safety of customers are of a very low standard. My daughter went to see father christmas and was asked by staff to swap presents as she was given the wrong… Read Full Review

“I think that Reddish Vale is a great riding school....”

Written on: 19/02/2010

I think that Reddish Vale is a great riding school. All the horses are well looked after and not worked too hard. The owner, Jill, is very good at making sure everyone is safe and running it as best as she can. For beginners you go on walk outs to help you improve your riding skills and your confidence to help you be ready for the menage, which I think is great because you have more balance and you don't rush in to everything. Then when you have improved you are ready to go into the menage… Read Full Review

I thought this review was very good because I've been looking through lot's of the other riding schools review's but by far this review is the most detailed and tells you all about the riding. I feel like I know Reddish Vale a bit better. Thanks to this review I would of been starting somewhere else! I can't wait for my first riding lesson at Reddish Vale.

One word for this riding school... awful!
i went to this riding school for about 4 weeks and left, the whole place was ran by moody kids who wern't very informative about where anything or any of the horses were... the office staff wern't very organised, some people didn't have horses and one week i asked them to book me in but when i turned up the next week they hadn't on the last week the horse i was meant to be riding was still in the field so i got put on another horse that was lame but… Read Full Review

The horses at redish vale riding school are looked after very well and the stable yarn is tidy, the stables are big but the only problems was that i said to them and kept saying a was a better beiginer in my old riding school. most of the leaders are nice and freindy but the one i had on my first walkout there was rubbish he did'nt even say anything to me and he did'nt do my stirrup irons right.the other thing is that i think the horses a over worked and they give you massive horses… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/11/2009 by Berniebo (1 review written)

I rode horses when I was younger so when my 6 year old daughter showed an interest decided to take her along for one of their beginner walk outs. My daughter love animals and was very excited when she got on Rusty - but as soon as he shook his head she cried and wanted to get off - the staff were FANTASTIC especially the young girl who was leading her, Hayley. They calmed her down and did not give up (checking with me that it was ok to do this of course) Megan has now been going for around 6… Read Full Review
