I've been learning to ride at Polmartin for about a year now, and I can't recommend it highly enough. Highly experienced and enthusiastic teachers, lovely horses and good indoor and outdoor facilities. The school also boasts its own private trails through beautiful countryside, just perfect for riding out on a sunny day!

My 6 year old daughter had wanted to try to pony riding whilst on holiday, having never ridden before. Jane and the team are experienced, friendly and reassuring to little ones. My daughter had an amazing time and talked about her trek and the pony Holly for the rest of the holiday. We would thoroughly recommend and return to Polmartin!

I was looking to book riding lessons for godchildren and nieces during the holidays and found Jane Eric and Polmartin on the internet. It was amazing! Safety of the children is the first focus, having fun the second. In total 6 children over the summer had the Polmartin experience and as a very very rusty rider myself I was also... More

Thank you to the Polmartin team for another superb pony camp. Lots of pony washing, grooming, riding and competitions and heaps of general fun for my 10 year old daughter and friends. Great value for money. Beautiful ponies and horses.

Right from my initial emails to them, through to the visit today I have been so impressed. They are extremely professional and safety aware, their stables, horses and the... More
