Can anyone recommend anywhere for horse riding lessons near swindon?

We go to South Cerney riding school in cerney wick. Ds is 4 and LOVES it. £10 per half hour.

Thanks that's great and the cheapest price I've heard too. Is that for a private or shared lesson? Do they do lessons after school or just at weekends? Do you know how long it takes to get there from Swindon? xxx

I'm in Redhouse and it takes literally ten mins. He has a lesson on his own most of the time for the £10 and they alternate lesson with a ride around the village which I think is good as then 'going out' will never be such a big deal. They are a bit rough and ready but very friendly and ds is loving it so that's all that matters. In fact it's their picninc ride tomorrow and I have asked him if he still wants to go as it'll probably be rainning and he's still keen as mustard!!

We go after school -4-4.30pm but they have a website for you to check other times or give them a ring to have a chat.

that should be they alternate a lesson in the indoor/outdorr school one week with a ride around the village the next.

Hi all. We're from swindon too. What age did your ds start his lessons?

muppetgirl Tue 19-Aug-08 19:37:41

Started 4/5 months ago and he's 4.5 now.

Thank you. Do you know how young they can start lessons?

muppetgirl Tue 19-Aug-08 20:14:18

18 months there. I was amazed but did see a little girl who was just over that. They have someone with them either leading or standing by them depending on how they are and they hold onto them whilst trotting which ds LOVES!!!

Really?!! Ds is 3 (well he will be next week )

Do you have any contact numbers?

muppetgirl Tue 19-Aug-08 20:22:55
