“Absolutely Fabulous Riding School”

Written on: 24/12/2012

My daughter learnt more here than in a previous school in a year. She was cantering within 1/2 hour. Had some one to one private lessons to boost confidence and she now attends Pony club regularly. Thoroughly enjoys content of pony club activities and after owning pony for a week can't wait to go on pony camp 2013 - camping and all. Wide selection of well mannered and gently but also feisty and exciting ponies and horses, three pony clubs available with lots of scope for aspiration. Fabulous… Read Full Review

Only 1 person there actually knows what they are on about,iv taken my daughter to many schools and this one seems great at first but then you notice things.the ponies are cheap,rushed schooled ponies that can be a problem. I don't know one person who is experienced and has a good word to say!

This place is AMAZING! I have previously ridden in several riding schools and nothing compares to shortcross. The people are so friendly, the horses are wonderfull and the area is breathtaking. Everything is so laid back and you never feel rushed. There is a voriaty of things to do from hacks, to riding lesson, own a pony week, you name it they do it!***** I would highley recommend this to friends… Read Full Review

“I couldn't disagree more with the last two reviews,...”

Written on: 21/06/2010

I couldn't disagree more with the last two reviews, I've found Shortcross Stables to be a very friendly yard for both lessons & livery with no negative atmosphere at all, it is pleasure to spend time with my horse there. With regard to unqualified staff, the yard is BHS approved, a Pony Club Centre & council licenced, surely they wouldn't give their approval & support if the level of teaching wasn't sufficient? The yard also displays its insurance certificate so I'm not concerned about the… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2010 by dawn hill (1 review written)

I have recommended many friends. The facilities are good for the money and the hacking out is the best I have known. Everyone works together and has fun-especially the kids. The fact that there is all year turnout is brilliant and the services are great. If there are problems they are discussed-best of all it is a safe and fun place for children and adults alike… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/02/2010

This yard is run very well and profesionally and the staff are alway willing to spend time to help you and your horse. All the riding-school ponies are well looked after, well fed and are stabled when possible in the spacious, clean american style barn or the more tradional style wooden stables that look out onto a neat, gravelled yard. The area is beautiful and the hacking is amazing, the best in the area in my opinon.
On site there is a masive cross-country course that is open durinf the… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/01/2010

I think that short cross is a very well run yard, the staff throughtly look after all ponies including the riding school ponies to the livery horses. it is good value for money considering the facititles and it is BHS approved, (very few in the area!! ) The only slight down side may be the winter turn out, but to be fair theres not many places with fantatstic turn out this time of the year!!. The staff are very helpfull and aim to do a lot for the younger generation, including pony camp which… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/12/2009

There is a lovely atmosphere at shortcross stables the staff are so helpful and everyone there is always offering a helping hand which i find reali helpful as i'm a single mum. the prices are great especially as hay is included in the price. the hacking is amazing, as there are so many different routes to go on, from the common, to roads and the fford is always great fun even when its been raining lots! But the best bit of all is that its only a 30 minute ride to ogmore beach! I would always… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/09/2009

For me this has been the best yard I've been at. The people there have been so helpful and supportive and have taught me so much. The hacking is to die for and there are lots of things to do both onsite and in hacking distance, and in my opinion there is something to do no matter what you want to get out your riding.
The 'Own a Pony' weeks are exellent for brining on young and enthusiastic pony lovers and there confidence, riding and care for the pony improves vastly over the week.
I would and… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/09/2009 by Claire C30 (1 review written)

My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed her times spent at shortcross. She has been made to feel very welcome and has made many friends. She has spent weeks with them in the holidays, has regular lessons and would be there every day if she could.
The lessons are excellent value for money and the horses are well cared for and loved by all.
I am unable to comment on the livery as we do not own our own pony, but I would certainly recomend Shortcross to friends… Read Full Review

Shortcross Bridgend - Sorry i disagree,everything may look hunkydory on top but behind the scenes is far from. the horses are basically just work animals to them and as a livery it is very expensive although in a nice area. this is my personal thoughts but would not recommend… Read Full Review
