Holly Riding School brought my riding on leaps and bounds from when I first arrived, they're fun and friendly and are fully recommended for learning to ride.

leaders
I attended holly riding school for 6 years, during my fifth year I became a leader, the worst decision of my life. We worked from 7:30 am-6:30 pm, we had 30 minutes for lunch which I often missed to towel down sweaty horses or feed cats. Horses were not watched closely enough as some of my fellow leaders were too rough and dome ponies became scared of their own saddles. I would not recommend this riding school as they treat their workeers ( who pay their employers £5 a week to do the job fir them, as part of a "riding club") as slaves and do not respect them at all, new leaders are not given any training or guidence so often form bad habbits and patchy knowledge of horse care. Do not use this stable.

Holly Riding School

I have been riding at Holly Riding School for a number of years now and have absolutely loved every minute of it. From absolute beginner to "not too bad if I say so myself" standard. It's a great School - from all the staff to all the horses and ponies. Everyone is catered for from small children to adults. I go at least once a week (much, much, much more if I had the time) and every lesson is fun, organised and informative. It is constantly changed to challenge everyone's level of ability. It is ran very well and an excellent code of practice is followed to keep both riders and our four legged friends safe and happy!!!!! ALL I CAN SAY IS KEEP DOING WHAT YOUR DOING I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!

Amazing Instructors best in North-East
  10 / 10
With regards to the previous comment by horseymad the reason we are not allowed in stables to groom or touch horses is for protection as some beginners do not understand correct stable conduct. However I was taught to ride by the owner of this establishment from age of 3-4 and being in my mid-twenties now, I bring my 3 year old daughter here for lessons. The instructors are fab for all age ranges and abilities as well as the stables offering weekend courses in stable management and equine care, giving students a chance to gain real qualifications from beginner to advanced levels. I wouldn't recommend anywhere else. They have fun days where the kids can win rosettes and have special lessons at xmas time. I loved and my daughter loves it. First class establishment with a massive range of facilities unlike other stables in the area.
