Good Riding School
Jun 2020
We took my son and a friend here for a birthday treat. They had been riding before. When we arrived there was adequate car parking. They had hand cleaning facilities when we arrived. A well organised set up. My son and his friend walked around a paddock on friendly horses for 30 minutes. Pleasant staff a good place to come for horse riding lessons.

Brilliant school
Jul 2019 • Family
My daughter has been riding here for well over and year and now age 6 her confidence on a horse and her ability just amazes me. The instructors are brilliant and really take the time to explain why certain ways of doing things are important. My daughter has now started doing the stable management and has just started to attend the pony club, she loves it. Can’t recommend enough!!

Highly reccommend
Sep 2018 • Solo
I recently went to this school for the first time and all I can say is that I won't be leaving. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The horses are beautiful, well cared for and love their job. They have a big variety of horses for you to learn on. And the lessons are great, full of information and they make learning to ride so easy. I would highly recommend this riding school to anyone be it children or adults.

What a comeback!
Apr 2018 • Solo
I had my first lesson here after not riding for 14 years due to a back injury.
I used to compete at a professional level, and sadly I hurt myself while showjumping.
I explained when booking that I wasn’t a novice, but I was particularly out of shape, and practise.
I was greeted by a friendly face at reception who told me who I would be riding, and who would be my instructor.
My instructor was excellent, we started with some basics and she worked me up to more difficult activities, allowing me to find my current level.
Towards the end of the lesson everything finally clicked back into place, and my instructor was as excited as I was! A great lesson, and I will definitely be returning, a wonderful feeling to be back in the saddle, and so great to have been assisted by an enthusiastic and encouraging teacher.

7th Birthday Party
Nov 2017 • Family
Had my daughters 7th Birthday party here today, and have to say she and her friends had a blast! Only one out of the 12 girls had had much experience with horses/ponies so we had a few who were a little nervous prior to getting on the ponies, however they were put at ease by the lovely instructors (1 per 2 girls) and had a great time playing traditional party games but on horseback! Would highly recommend Glen Jakes for a party. Thanks!

Great start to a return to riding
Sep 2017 • Solo
I have just started lessons here at Glen Jakes and have been thoroughly enjoying the experience. The staff are very efficient and I have had an excellent instructor in Molly . All the horses I have ridden have had the most lovely natures and have been very tolerant of my inexperience! I have had full hour long lessons and found I have progressed and gained confidence thanks to Molly and her ability to keep the lessons variable and interesting.

A place to visit and a place to remember
Nov 2016 • Friends
They are beautifully friendly and humane to the horses. They put smiles on children's faces and they are there when you have nothing else to turn to.
I will always remember my favourite horse from many years ago and many years riding there. She was a dream come true. Stella was a favourite in my heart and soul.

Had a great first experience of riding
Oct 2016 • Family
Went for a one hour lesson with my friend and her 3 young kids, the youngest of which is highly Autistic and to top it off is also afraid of heights! He didn't like getting on his pony at first and I thought he was about to have a full-blown tantrum, but the staff were fantastic with him and he enjoyed riding at a simple walk. We were given a group lesson, with a trained staff member as the leader, and a few younger but experienced members as our personal horse guides. The girl I had was very young but lovely to work with. Us adults were given fully grown horses, the younger ones were given ponies, and we all followed the same route and instructions. A few times I struggled with the reins due to having a bit of an unpredictable horse but I felt I was in good hands - and horses are not supposed to behave perfectly all the time. We were taught to make the horse stop and start, go left and right, ride at a walk, a trot, and also to rise in our saddles. The best bit was being taught to ride without holding on to the reins! We had an opportunity to take photos at the end of the lesson which was lovely. I hope to come again and bring another friend with me.

Great place...Great staff
Aug 2016 • Family
We arrived a bit early for the ride with the excitement of two little girls one 9 and 3 just completely overflowing.. Everyone was very helpful and friendly...The girls had their hat's fitted and then full instructions where given for riding the ponies in a manner that both girls could understand. 2 instructors with the 3 year old and 1 instructor for the 9 year old for the half hr Rideout.The whole place was well maintained as was the equipment.Theres a little cafe with vending machines lots of leaflet's about events going on.We all had a lovely time and would recommend going for all ages.
