“After a few years.....”

Written on: 06/08/2015 by Howeyb1950 (1 review written)

So I have been riding for many years at Fender and to start off with it was amazing, I was taught to ride exactly how I would want to be, with friendly staff who helped me learn everything. Now I am advancing in my riding im starting to see that the riding school needs a bit of revamping. Some of the horses plod and they need to get some new ones Some of the area is rundown The instructors aren't in uniform some of the helpers are bitchy and moody I did like how when I was younger it was so… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/12/2014

I love it everyone's so nice and I madd friends easily I have private and group lessons an its fab! When I went to larton everyone was really snotty and it put me off riding.

“Lovely horses lovely instructors”

Written on: 27/10/2013

I have been going for about a year and a half and I think it is amazing! We do different things every week. After my lesson I help out: lead, muck out& do jobs around the yard. The staff are really helpful land friendly and it has a lot of facilities: outdoor, outdoor for liveries, 2 indoors& several fields to ride in. Overall I think it is a amazing place to go riding!… Read Full Review

“Brilliant All Round Riding School Offering Something...”

Written on: 07/11/2012

West Wirral Riding School is a well established family business which has been running for a good number of years, I've been there for nearly 10! When I started, I'd recently had a bad accident somewhere else and needed to rebuild my confidence somewhere new. I've always felt welcomed at the yard, and the atmosphere is always positive. The horses are well looked after, and always have access to food and water. They are groomed on a daily basis and their stables are skipped out regularly… Read Full Review

“Unfriendly staff”

Written on: 27/09/2012

Tried here as it was closer but the staff I came across were unhelpful and not very friendly. The horses I was given were not forward going and 1 was coughing all the time. They were very dusty and seemed not groomed. The private lesson was cut short by 10 minutes. The instructor wasn't interested when I mentioned it… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/05/2011

West Wirral Riding School is excellent. The instructors tell you what to do to move up, encourage you, and reassure you. The ponies and horses are well looked after. It is only 10 pounds per lesson, which is half an hour. Therefore, my conclusion is...GO THERE ITIS BRILLIANT! and also they dont make you do something if you dont wanna! luff fender farm! please i reccomend it!… Read Full Review

I am an experienced horse rider as i have been riding since i was about 9 and i learnt to ride horses at Larton and to be honest i learnt hell of alot more at larton than what i did at west wirral and the difference between them is that larton the leaders are helpful and chatty and you can let your feelings out, where as at west wirral i would not even speak as i feel that i could not talk to anyone and the facilities are alot tidier than what at west wirral so i definatly NOT recomend this… Read Full Review

You come across very disrespectful just like most people at Larton. Leaders are quieter so they do not distract riders, Larton is horrid to their helpers and treat them with no respect forcing them to do things. It is a riding school so you would not nee to let your feelings out that is not what it's for! Larton is rude and put inexperienced riders on difficult horses.

Written on: 16/12/2010

I have taken up riding again after 20 years and am having lessons at Larton (group and one to one lessons)and Fender Valley (one to one lessons with Gary). I find Gary an excellent teacher and is very encouraging. He explains not only what to do but why, which I find helpful. The horses are lovely and appear forward going, not what you expect of riding school horses. Also pleased with price which is very competitive… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/10/2010

This riding school has been a family run business for over 35 years. The staff are all have BHS qualifications and the school is ABRS approved. The 20 stamps on a card is a concession on condition you have your card stamped when you pay there is no problem getting your free lesson. The yard owner has been in hospital and had just been discharged. The Riding Centre is very friendly
and all the horses are lovely and good for all abilities. We love this riding centre and wouldn't go anywhere else… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/09/2010


I have been sending my 4yr old to West Wirral Riding School since February 2010. We had paid most weeks for a 1-1 lesson at my request due to his age and ability.
I have just returned from a half hour group lesson and when paying, enquired about an offer they advertise which states after 20 lessons, you receive a complimentary ride. As we have been for so long and had exceeded 20 visits, did not think this would be a problem possibly to have our next lesson free.
However, there are certain… Read Full Review

don't you feel a bit daft losing your rag over the internet? you definitely come across as a bit loopy for calling health and safety into question over a couple of words.

Written on: 30/08/2010

I have been riding at West Wirral Riding School for 9 years. The horses are calm, exept some new horses that are spooked easily, and the staff are very nice. The staff gives constructive advice about how to improve your riding and they tell you what you did correctly. They have two indoors so if it rains two lessons can still be held sepretly. The olny down fall is that they dont fit the standard of rider to the standard of the lesson, I am on a ride with only three out of 9 of us that are the… Read Full Review

“Its very bitchy!! ”

Written on: 14/12/2009

Its very bitchy!!
The only good thing about Fender is there are two indoors!!
Can't say much more, i spent about 7 years there, helping, working, and being a livery, for the first few years i loved it, and i had the best time there in my life, but once i got older and stuck up for myself it became very bitchy and upsetting as all i used to do is go home upset. The instructors arent qualified, apart from one, who only does the higher level rides. So not the best riding school at all!!… Read Full Review
