Beautiful winters day ride in the park, frost still on the grass. Staff were friendly and helpful. Don't get the negative comments about being led round as we still can't ride and had to be taken round also. Went on a weekday so didn't get to see the owner again but he sent us a nice email as we had... More

PLEASE AVOID THIS STABLE. I was shocked that the ride around Hyde park involved three horses tied very closely together in parallel so that the middle horse became high agitated and kept trying to kick. I repeatedly asked why we were in this ridiculous formation and was told that I wasn't experienced enough to be off a lead despite the... More

We are very sorry that you have not enjoyed your experience with us. Unfortunately with Hyde Park being a public space we have to take into consideration any factors beyond our control that may pose a risk, such as events like Winter Wonderland. As a result, we do advise our instructors to be incredibly strict with who they let of... More

My family of 6 booked a private ride and as many have stated horseback is a great way to see Hyde Park. The horses were very well behaved and "bombproof". My kids aged 5 and 9 with only a few lessons came and rode cute, perfectly suitable horses. While we really enjoyed our tour I have to say the website... More

The Hyde Park Stables website states that riding horses is a risk sport. Absolutley true. However the - exception is when as an adult, one is given a little child's pony to ride. To be honest I remain absolutley flumoxed as to exactly why a (lead rein) childs pony would be given to an adult horse rider with horse riding... More

This was my second visit to Hyde Park Stables. The first time I booked a private ride, which is more expensive but turned out to be the better choice. On this visit I booked a semi-private ride, so they added one other person to my riding group and we went out with two lovely guides. Unfortunately the other person they... More

Located in Bathurst Mews you would never expect a small stable of horses to be located in such a quaint location in London literally tucked inside a beautiful neighbourhood near Hyde Park. The establishment is very responsible and safe for adults and children alike for all equestrian levels. It is a great way to travel through Hyde Park around the... More

I rode with them last year, and this time I surprised my friend with a semi-private ride in the park. Our quick getaway was her first time in London, and what's better way to see that iconic park than riding on a sunny day? They had assigned her riding Blue, however the horse was still on previous ride when we... More
