This was a real treat, it was lovely to spend time with the horses and the views from the trek were amazing! It's been a long
time since either of us has riden a horse and the guide really put us at ease.

One hell of a ride!
Sep 2021
Visited Studland Trekking Centre a couple of weeks ago now and what a fantastic time we had. Hats off to Brady who pretty much runs the place single-handedly, you sir were a delight. The horses were awesome, knew exactly what to do and when to do it. Myself and friend rode in the morning and afternoon, and safe to say we will be making sure to head back and see ~Brady and gang very soon. Wishing Brady all the best with what he has coming up in his life ventures! See you soon, C&V xx

All 5 of my family had such a lovely time riding across the breathtaking heathlands. Thank you to our hosts for leading us and helping my son change from being nervous to loving it in 1 ride!

Refund requested
Jul 2021 • Couples
Booked my wife a ride as a birthday present as we are in Christchurch for a few days and have been to the stables before,when I booked I asked for an email confirmation,I didn’t receive one, on the morning of the ride I called at about 9:30 to see if the ride was going to take place as it’s extremely warm. We finally received a call at 2:00 to say we were booked in for the next day which isnt what I have in my diary and tbh I only had one entry to make on that day. It had taken an hour to drive there and we really didn’t fancy doing it the next day as we only have a few days away so thought the best way forward would be to have our money refunded ,this apparently isn’t going to happen,they thought the best plan of action would be to hang up, rude and arrogant is an understatement,I can only assume there has been a change of ownership or there’s some staff training required. If I had received an email confirmation as requested there would have been no confusion,be careful booking as they seem to think they can take your money,change dates of rides and then not offer a refund

A confirmation email stating the time and date of your ride was sent whilst I was on the phone to you when booking - as I asked you to spell your email address to me. I have sent you proof of this. Leaving a bad review for your misunderstanding is quite frankly absurd.

Fantastic beach ride
May 2021 • Friends
Great communication from start to finish. I had wanted to have a horse ride as 50 things to do in my 50th year and happened to be walking my dog at Studland when a vision of horses appeared. This is where I want to ride a horse. So I googled it and emailed the centre. My friend and I completed the beach ride in the evening and were super lucky with the weather and having the beach almost to ourselves. Lovely, well cared for horses with a friendly attentive horse instructor, yard manager Brady. A perfect experience.

An experience not to be missed!
May 2021 • Family
My sister and I went recently and I must say we had a fantastic time. (My sister had never ridden before but was made to feel very safe and at ease). I was on the lovely Seamus and my sister was on Percy! Beautiful views up on the Heath really breathtaking, horses know exactly what to do and where to go very well trained and I will definitely be booking again! Staff were so friendly and informative, really easy going and this really is a fantastic little gem in the Dorset countryside!

Amazing riding and company!
Apr 2021 • Solo
Amazing riding with Bradley and his lovely horses. Thank you and such good company. I always look for a place to hack out on holiday and found my perfect spot. old Harry’s Rock ride (stunning) and the beach ride. Plenty fast canters and open space. Was v impressed by the stables and horses (ponies). Oh and the best part is you can juts hop off the bus and no bed for a car. Also great walks nearby and The Bankes Arms for drinks outside with a view. I normally ride 16.2 Appaloosa and Irish draft gelding at home but had my first ride on the lovely Chico maybe 14 hands but full of fun. Then had Rufus the Clydesdale to head down beach but ended up back on Chico (thanks). Would have loved another ride before home but hey ho. Will def come back here. If I ever move down from Scotland and need a livery my boy Merlin would love this place. Thanks Louise x
