“Such a shame”

Written on: 21/08/2021 by 319Doherty (1 review written)

We booked for our 3 children to do the pony ‘half day’ experience. When we arrived, we were stood around for 15 minutes as there was no welcome/instruction as to where to go or who to see. My husband went to find out and we we’re told to check in at the shop. Wow. That shop. Absolute carnage. Stuff everywhere and extremely dirty. Kids who were there on full days were being told to leave their lunchboxes on floor! From there, we took our children round to wait for the next instruction… Read Full Review

“Disgusting, untidy and dangerous! ”

Written on: 06/07/2021 by Sweeney463 (1 review written)

booked for a bridlepath ride as a last day of our holiday, turned up and was told to go to reception/shop, the place is disgusting!! no covid rules except for a few signs, saddles and bridles were not sanitized, they were dirty! we tried on hats which looked like they hadn't been cleaned in years and then told to stand on the steps to wait for our horses, the horses looked awful, muddy and not seen a brush in months, the poor things looked as if they had given up on life, the absolute state of… Read Full Review

“Come on Bridlewood !!!!”

Written on: 23/02/2016 by wudy1 (1 review written)

Great location and friendly staff, I took my 7 year old daughter recently who loves horses. Bridlewood is in a great location close to the Beach and within easy reach of all the North Wales holiday camps in the area so has a good catchment area, however I do feel the place really lets itself down. The shop/reception area is grubby and untidy and lets its self down as a first impression We went on the half hour pony trek which is very uninspiring and very muddy, the general appearance of the… Read Full Review

glad I'm not the only one who thinks the place is a total dump! I walked in and right back out of the toilet, I've seen cleaner in a hoarders house! and the cafe, you'd be lucky if your not sitting on the toilet for days after eating there! they place is like a huge dumping ground, everything's falling apart including the poor horses, never again will I go there!

“Visited in the Summer Holidays ”

Written on: 13/12/2015 by 399McLeod (1 review written)

Over the past 5 years I have been visiting Bridlewood with my daughters so they can do the 30mins bridlepath ride. I have never been disappointed!! The staff a friendly and clearly have a passion about horses and the care they provide. In the summer it can get very busy but they are always happy to help and will always try and accommodate when they can!! If in the area whilst on holiday and looking for an activity for the kids this is the place to go. Prices are very reasonable to… Read Full Review

“Disappointed ”

Written on: 29/10/2015

Booked the bridlepath for 30 mins. When I got there, I couldn't find staff for 10 mintues, and when I did I had to wait 5 minutes for a horse and guide. Walked around the path which only took 15 minutes when I paid full price of 30mins. So rather disappointed. Guide was friendly and chatty, pony was lovely but was rather muddy. … Read Full Review

“Terrible!”

Written on: 02/03/2015 by cjGrantham1966 (1 review written)

I recently went to Bridlewood with my sister to watch my niece riding,I was horrified to see the state of the place, there were young children running around,dangerous with horses about, stuff lying about all over the place, how it passes health and safety I have no idea. Their own horses/ponies didn't seem in the best of spirits, though I cannot blame them if they had been used for lessons in the arena's which were way too deep, definitely not good for ANY horses/ponies. With where it is… Read Full Review

“Very friendly and helpful”

Written on: 23/04/2012 by Sarahderb (2 reviews written)

I have just returned home after spending 3 days at Bridlewood Riding Centre. A friend and I took our horses with us so that we could ride on the beach. I cant recommend the centre enough. Clean large stables, haynets filled, water topped up, friendly staff who looked happy in their work, nice area to sit and have a drink, excellent shop, other horses at the centre well looked after, fab scenery. We will definately return. We were made to feel at home and there was no snobbery as you can get in… Read Full Review

“Let down by hack”

Written on: 19/03/2012

Really felt let down with the beach ride i went on there. I am a horse riding instructor and went with 3 experienced friends. 3 adults were put on ponies and the tallest rider got a horse of about 15hh. When we arrived 2 teenaged girls argued who was going to take us out as both had previously been out and looked like they didnt want to go out again. She hardly talked to us all the way round and was more interested in her mobile phone. As for the ride it could of been great but we walked… Read Full Review

“Best day ever!!!”

Written on: 07/07/2011 by K.Skinner (1 review written)

Absolutly amazing!! My partner had decided to propose to me whilst i was out on a hack...the staff could not have made this special day any more perfect!! Myself and Kim (staff) started our hack which was lovely, beautiful scenery and Kim was really supportive with my lack of confidence whilst riding. Everyone knew at the stables apart from me, and whilst we were riding another member of staff took my new fiance to the beach where they waited for us! They were really patient, flexible and… Read Full Review

“Birthday Ride 26/06/11”

Written on: 29/06/2011 by Helsy36 (1 review written)

Hi, I found all the staff at Bridlewood helpful and friendly, I checked in and was given a horse called me me. We had a quick practice in the arena and then we were off to the beach - and it was FAB. For a little pony she can move and had some great gallops across the beach. Before we got to the beach Kim told me what to expect, and as I hadn't ridden for some time that made me feel much more at ease. As you would expect the horses get a bit excited, but I felt completly safe. We got past… Read Full Review

“Has it all!!!!”

Written on: 07/06/2011

Bridlewood is in a great location with being on the right by the Beach and great hacking up the hills with pubs to stop off at. I have stabled my horse here on and off from the age of 9. I have made great friends and have had great experiences, I have watched the yard grow from strength to strength having now being here on and off for 12 years. Bridlewood has it all from 3 sanded arenas one with new show jumps, a short track with small x-country fences, the beach, the warren rides, hacks up… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/06/2011 by Vikki.S (1 review written)

I have been to Bridlewood on a few occasions, each time I have been very happy with their service. I've been on the beach ride, which I would highly recommend! Having been on beach rides at various riding centres over the years, I would say this is the best one! Great value for money, all the horses and ponies are well cared for and not over used and they enjoy themselves on the beach as much as their riders! They're all lovely natured too. The staff are all lovely, we went for a birthday… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/09/2010

very disappointed. booked the 2 hour beach ride. was only just 2hours, however 30 minutes was spent waiting to cross the train tracks. the girl that took us out, spoke about herself and nothing else and how high she could jump, we were given unsuitable horses. when we go to the beach we were given no direction in what way to go and when to do what, therfore as soon as we go th the beach my daughters horse just bolted, so mine followed suit. girl was not happy with us and took us back to walk… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/08/2010

I recently went for a beach ride at the riding centre. Upon arrival staff were very friendly and efficient. The ride itself was fantastic. I have not ridden on the beach for a number of years and the feeling of galloping along the beach was exhilarating. I will definitely be returning. It is just a shame I do not live close by!… Read Full Review
