Owner description: Our aim is to teach horsemanship and horse riding from the ground up, preparing all of our clients with a solid knowledge and foundation of how to understand, handle, care for and ride a horse. Then, when they are ready to have their own horse, they will have the skills required to choose the right horse for them and the knowledge to care for him properly.

“Fantastic horses, friendly people, great tuition, amazing off road hacking.”
Reviewed 7 November 2011

If you want to learn (or want your kids to learn) all round horsemanship, including handling and caring for horses on the ground as well as riding then I cannot recommend Lanner Equestrian Centre enough.

Its perfect grounding if you are thinking of one day having your own horse,. You can either pay per hack/lesson or for those with a level of experience wanting to ride more often can join the riding pool- basically like an annual membership. The hacks are more like riding out with your mates, even if its your first time. I started riding there last year after a 15yr break and it's the best thing i've ever done - my 11yr old son then showed an interest- he now comes with me too and we ride out together.

Four things that make Lanner Equestrian so special are:
1) The horses, safe and well looked after, a good range of sizes and types to suit all abilities, each with their own individual personality. They are never overworked or overschooled.
2) Miles of off road hacking with beautiful Cornish scenery. Loads of different routes and never gets boring.
3) The owner, Lorraine, is so deeply passionate about horses and sharing her enthusiasm and knowledge (and horses!) with others.
4) Friendly atmosphere - not at all snooty. Always someone around to ask for help.

I know this review seems quite evangelical but I have honestly never been to a riding school like it and joining the riding pool is the best thing i've ever done. If you look up the riding pool on facebook it will be obvious how amazing it is.
