“Nice horse, great riding”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

Large, relaxed, friendly stables where you can hack straight out onto the New Forest which needless to say offers stunning views and consistent tracks. I got the impression that they have a good range of well schooled horses to suit all abilities. If you can ride but are rusty, ask for Bud, a big bay who loves to canter and is as smooth as a rocking horse. Next time I'll do the day ride.

“Excellent stables”
Reviewed 17 August 2011

Myself and my daughter went on a trot and canter hack. The yard was clean and tidy and all the horses were well looked after. We had a great hour with plenty of cantering on suitable horses. Would recommend for any competent riders.

“Great stables with beautiful countryside on it's doorstep!”
Reviewed 12 March 2011

I have ridden here twice and both times have had a fantastic hack on well schooled horses, who are enthusiastic and well matched to their riders!

I am an advanced rider and found the hack to be well managed and in the most beautiful of locations, literally backing right into the New Forest - you don't even go near a road, and can go for miles into the beautiful landscape!

Stables are well managed, the horses are well looked after and the pricing is reasonable. I can imagine they get very busy in the summer but both times I've been lucky enough to get a semi private hack, which has been great!

They also have several areas for lessons and over 50 horses in residence at the moment, although I gather it's a mix of livery and stable horses.

I thoroughly recommend it!
