Thank you, this is such an enjoyable review to read. We’re particularly glad you love being able to have a taste of the countryside so close to London and we hope you continue to ride with us and remain so satisfied with the experience.

Most of the reception staff just want to sit around and chat or laugh at the back room. There is no friendly welcome when you arrive for a lesson.

We like this riding centre and regularly go there for riding lessons. Some times we are very satisfied with the group lessons, especially when Allison teaches, others it feels a bit too much of a routine lesson just to spend some time on the saddle.
