We booked in for a half hour lesson for our daughter who had never ridden a horse in her life. The staff were incredibly professional, friendly and most of all patient when dealing with small children and animals. When we next in the new forest we will definitely return for more lessons.

The 2 girls that took 5 of us out, friendly, but to pay £65.00 when all we did was walk for 1hour and 59 minutes with under a minute of trotting, would not go there again

This was a birthday present from my boyfriend, he's only been on a horse a couple of times and I am experienced in English riding but that didn't matter as all types are catered for. I was paired with the lovely Coyote....he has the air of 'I've seen it all and then some' and I loved his nonchalant character, apparently... More

Really enjoyed my time with the ponies. I'd never ridden before, but I was made to feel welcome and put at ease. Felt I was in safe hands throughout. Would recommend.

I came to Burley-Villa School of Riding for a Western Day Experience. My boyfriend bought it for me as he knows how much I use to love riding as a child. I haven't been on a horse for more than 15 years but the staff made it really easy and stress free. The ranch is very welcoming with tea, coffee... More

We bought our daughter a western style riding day for her 21st. She now has a wonderful memory to look back on. On getting to the stable we were met by very helpful and friendly staff. My husband and i bought the lunch option too so we could spend some of the day with her. There was plenty of tea... More

We visited as part of a Virgin experience package, 2 days horse riding and a night at the Bashley B&B. Having never ridden before I was quite uneasy about the experience but the staff here are wonderful at putting new ridders at ease and by the last ride I was feeling a bit sad about having to say goodbye to...

What a perfect way to summarise our quiet holiday in New Forest. It was a good surprise for our teenagers. STAFF We had two members of staff who made our whole experience a memorable one. The two angels in their fluorescent vests kept us engaged with spontaneous conversations while introducing us to the horses. HORSES Horses in general are unpredictable... More

We visited as a Girlguiding group - thirty six of us with 24 of us riding. The owners and staff couldn't have been more helpful on the telephone when we booked and in person when we visited. We opted for the 30 minute ride which was perfect for beginners. The girls loved looking around the yard and the staff chatted... More
