An excellent ride
Jun. 2021
The ride was excellent. My instructor, Olivia was very helpful and friendly and encouraging. My horse Ivan was a delight to ride. The horses seemed happy to be out. Riding on sand is great, so much softer for the horses.

Great experience
Apr. 2021 • Couples
I took my wife horse riding for her birthday at Hyde Park Stables in May.
We barely had any experience of being on a horse but the staff put us at ease straight away. They provided hat and boots, along with waterproof coat as it was raining, but this didn’t take away from the experience at all!

The horses were amazing, clearly well trained and very well looked after.

Alex was brilliant and tailored the experience to however we wanted to do it, she was an absolute expert and always in control of us and the horses. It was a very memorable experience and we would highly recommend.

Unique and Unforgettable Central London Experience
Dec. 2020
There are few London experiences more joyous than trotting round Hyde Park on a horse from the Hyde Park Stables in the company of Alex and Sophie, two of their excellent coaches. The stables are clearly supremely well run given how healthy, contented, well-groomed and calm the horses are. Moreover, the staff are incredibly knowledgable, well-qualified and experienced. Alex and Sophie were all that, plus fun and charming riding companions. Thank you, thank you. And have no fears over children: Chrissie the manager was very upfront - 'safety comes first'. So whether you are a visitor to London, a long-time resident or just someone looking for a unique, head-clearing experience, go no further than Hyde Park Stables. Big thanks to Mandy, Chrissie, Alex and Sophie (and Ivan the horse1) for giving me an unforgettable experience and the best Christmas present ever.

Enjoyed Every Second!
Nov. 2020
Myself and my daughter are both experienced riders from Northern Ireland and included a one hour ride around Hyde Park on a visit to London. From we arrived at the stables everyone was so friendly and the fun atmosphere continued as we were introduced to our wonderful leader and horses. We had always thought it would be lovely to do this as a special experience and riding around this beautiful Park with the London red buses and Marble Arch in the back ground it exceeded our expectations!
We will be back!

All in all a wonderful experience and would highly recommend everybody come and try this.
Thankyou to all the staff and horses for our lovely afternoon.

Amazing Experience
Oct. 2020 • Couples
This was part of a surprise Birthday day out for my fiancée and I must say it’s a really fun experience for couples to do together; although I also imagine the experience will be great for groups or solo riders.

I’ve never been on a horse before and my partner hasn’t in many years, but the instructor, Sophie, was exceptionally helpful in her guidance and also was just a lovely person to chat to and clearly has a good relationship with the horses.

We had the first morning slot which meant Hyde park was just waking up and you can appreciate it in a way you rarely get to. There’s something so calming about travelling around Hyde park by horse. Our day happened to coincide with a storm, so it was very rainy when we went out. This initially worried us but actually it did not detract from the experience, and some of the horses clearly enjoyed the puddles! Our horses were George and Ivan, who both had great personalities, and Sophie rode along with Teddy, who was adorable.

All in all, a really great experience and we would thoroughly recommend to anyone who wants a nice outdoor activity in London.

My best experience in London and it'll stay up there for a while I think!!!!!!!

Seeing Hyde Park from the back of a Horse is such a different experience I'll recommend to every client as a Concierge!
You really get to create a bond with the horse.
For my first ride for 15 years, I had the chance to ride with Ivan who was an amazing horse and I look forward to riding with him again.

Sophie my instructor has been lovely and figured out my level very well, she then offered me to do a bit of trotting which was very cool!
All the staff were welcoming, it is and really felt like a family business that I'm sure will strive!
I'll come back as soon as I can and you should not hesitate.

Anti climax
Feb. 2020 • Solo
Booked a private ride mid February after always wanting to ride in London. I've been riding for 20 years and when you book it asks to state riding experience but really it doesnt need to do this. Although it was really lovely to ride in Hyde Park, the ride itself was not fun at all. There was one short trot and the rest was all done at a walk. I was at least expecting to canter or trot for longer. The horse was lovely but very lazy and seemed a bit bored of his job. Nice experience but I do not think I will do this again. Almost £150 for a glorified pony trek. At least the weather was nice

Horse heaven in Hyde Park
Feb. 2020 • Friends
Candi & Sophie were excellent mounted tour guides! What an amazing way to see the park. My friend has been on a horse just a few times but felt confident enough to try and start posting the trot. I have a horse and felt appropriately matched on the cutest Cobb. So whether you’re a beginner or more experienced they can tailor the experience to completely match your expectations. Plus both ladies gave us excellent tips on other things to do. Recommend whole heartedly for singles or families. One of the best spent hours this trip!!! Thank you!
