My child rode at Carrington for over two years and was taught by some excellent instructors. The lessons were enjoyable and progress was good. Over a period of time the centre got busier and busier and we noted that there seemed to be an increasing number of instances with naughty ponies and falls were happening quite regularly. I don’t know... More

I am grateful to the very pleasant lady on the phone who booked my daughter and her friend into an hour long private lesson with only a couple of hours' notice. On arriving, with no real clue as to where to go we made for the café, where we were greeted. Perhaps not the warmest of welcomes but this seems... More

The woman on reception can be a little tetchy but the other staff are very nice and the atmosphere in general is very relaxed and friendly.

After 2 years with my 2 girls (over £1000/year) we have left. Carrington Riding School is a business and therefore are focused only on profit. All smiles until you request something out of their remit. We only asked to change dates of lessons but were told no and more importantly was spoke to with utter contempt at a cost to... More

Horses brought in from Eastern Europe and are not well schooled. Poor things were covered in dried mud and not groomed before being tacked up, this can rub and cause discomfort and pain!! Beware they make you pay up front and if you have to cancel or are late they won't refund you!!!

The staff here can adapt the way they learn people to ride horses, very friendly people. The horses are so friendly too, each with their own personality, my favourite is Ozzy what a legend he is X
