Great facilities, comfortable, welcoming, everything we needed. Horses very well looked after. Chloe on the yard particularly friendly and helpful.


Client Feedback

“We had a fantastic time! The XC session with Liane was brilliant – and the flat lessons too. Loved Percy and would buy him tomorrow if I could. I am planning on bringing my horse over to do an hour with Liane so that she can do a proper assessment of her and arrange for her to spend a couple of weeks with Liane to bring her on.”

Lessons were at right level for us – got some really good tips, improved riding and confidence and had a lot of fun, thank you!

Very good, nice instructor and kind pony.

You need more pictures online the ones you have don’t do it justice.

Horses stay was perfect. Yard girls are very friendly and helpful. Lovely area, quiet, would definitely come back!


Gill Pearson – May 2015 – Riding Holiday with our horses.

Have been before but this time came with a new friend.

Liane quickly worked out where the girls were and taught them effectively – the girls really enjoyed it.

Overall a relaxed stay, enjoyed the surroundings and seeing the animals and horses.


Rachael & Jemmer – May 2015 – Riding Holiday with own horses.

The Studio was perfect for what we needed and the stables were good.

Jo and Natalie were very helpful when booking and contacting us and replying straight away and willing to fulfill our needs.  Mr Pocock couldn’t do enough for us.  The indoor, outdoor school and cross country course are fantastic and being able to have a free rein on the yard and with the facilities was great.

Overall – an enjoyable stay for horse and rider.  Would recommend.


Sandra & Stephanie Pound – April 2015 – Riding Holiday on Hurstwood Horses

We heard about Hurstwood Farm by referral from a friend.  The riding lessons were excellent.  We had an enjoyable riding experience.  Good atmosphere, Emily and Liane were very approachable and friendly.


Alex Wright – April 2015 – Riding Holiday on Hurstwood Horses

We loved the accommodation, location, laid back environment, little touches (orange chocs, tea bags etc). The horses were clearly very well cared for, and the whole set up seemed full of care.  The lessons and the hacks were just wonderful – clearly adjusted to suit us – just the right balance of lesson and holiday.  Big grateful thank you hugs from us to Emily & Liane, and to all of you, especially for organising the weather! We’ll be back!


Nikki Steel – April 2015 -Riding Holiday (own horse) 

Very Satisfied.  Had a 90 minute XC Lesson with Liane – very patient and encouraging.


Michelle Kang – February 2015 – Riding whilst on holiday

Only managed to squeeze in one lesson with Liane – very good, obviously very experienced rider.  Emily very pleasant to hack with – shame the ground was so wet”
