Excellent

published 09/11/2007

I went to Endon for a riding holiday and it was the best time of my life. Everyone on the yard was friendly and helpful and all the horses were really well looked after. The food was good and the beds were comfy, I met loads of new friends and I was never bored. The lessons were really fun and the instructors helped my riding improve loads by giving helpful advice which boosted my confidence. Endon Riding School is a truely amazing stables. I'm definately going back next year.

Having ridden there for many years as a kid I came back to an adults lesson expecting to continue my progression. Sadly the lessons were overcrowded and put the horses at rick of injury. The only objective was to 'keep up with the ride' which on a 13.2 when lead file is 17hh is ridiculous, I could have made the pony go that fast but neither of us would ahve gained anything from it. A real shame that poor teaching has let the adult end of the business go to wrack and ruin. Still some very nice horses there and the dealing side means that there should be an ever changing selection to work through.

Recently i had the unfortunate experiance of working here as part of my work experiance. the horses are lovely apart from the odd few that are completely wild...the owners attitudes towards the workers was absolutly disgraceful and totally unacceptable and the amount of money you have to pay for a lesson is just out of this world for example £25 for a private lesson that isnt even your own because you have to have 2 or more people. working there was great on the days the bosses werent in. they were happy for me to work for free and they were happy to have my £16 a week for a lesson...

Upon our first visit to ERS we entered the indoor school to find no staff members, we then walked out on to the main yard to find a host of adults and children smoking sat around the bench area, we were obviously looking lost so to speak and were looked upon as though we had come to the wrong...

Progood range of ponies and facilities

Conspoor teaching and emphasis on making money

My daughter spent 18 months learning to ride at Endon Riding School. In retrospect I don't know how we lasted so long - my lack of knowledge of the 'horsey' world made me believe that it was ok for children to fall off in most lessons; for inexperienced children to ride unruly and dangerous...

back in the day this was a great riding school, im sad to say that over the past few years the good staff have left and kids who cant even ride that well teach children and parents are charged £20!!! its all about the money and the owners dont care about the horses/staff/customers. I hope they sell up soon and someone who really wants to be there buys it.
