'I found Hall Place a couple of years ago, I was specifically looking for somewhere where I could have lessons with a qualified instructor. I've been riding for 30 years, but have been out of the saddle for quite some time, the team have truly piqued my passion for horse and riding again.


I wanted to have lessons with a view to buying my own horse again in the not too distant future. I've been lucky to get to know a number of the instructors and now work regularly with Kate Turner, the Head Coach. Kate has taken apart my 30 years worth of old habit and bad habits and has slowly put me back together again. I am now learning to ride at a very technical level and enjoying each step of the journey. My riding is better than it ever has been and I really can't get enough of it!


The team at Hall Place are friendly, experienced and willing to encourage a variety of competencies, dressage, jumping, cross country etc. They encourage riders to compete, hack out and enjoy the peace and quiet and even get non-riders involved at their shows and cross country events.


The horses are great, far better than I was used to in my teenage days, and the facilities are varied, with indoor and outdoor schools, cross country course, tack and coffee shop!


I am due to loan one of the horses for a week in July - I fear it may be a slippery slope to purchase!!'

'I Just wanted to let you know how fabulous the clinic was yesterday evening and Nicola really helped with  my confidence. It was mine and horses first time and we loved it, although I was terrified!


Great instruction, lovely fences and value for money, will definitely be booking for more clinics, thank you!


See you tomorrow, let's just hope it goes as well as the clinic.'

'My husband and I just wanted to say how pleased we were with the pony party for Emily on Saturday 2nd Feb. Everything was fantastic from start to finish. Very professional when it came to the safety and welfare of the children during their riding time (and patient as well, I might add!), which they all thoroughly enjoyed. Everyone was polite and friendly and we thought the value for money was brilliant. Thank you for such a wonderful afternoon. Please extend our thanks and gratitude to everyone that was involved.'

'Excellent instruction, well aimed at the level of riders in the class.'


'The instructors are good, really helpful and even if it's a group lesson, they teach us as individuals'.


'The instruction is competent and constructive, the instructors are always trying to improve the rider, not just berating for any failings.'


'The lessons are very good, I like the fact that the groups are not too large'
