Please pass on my thanks to Chloe....

October 2021


I was hoping you could pass my thanks on to Chloe. 


Earlier today I called to let Chloe know that my daughter Lucia had struggled after her first lesson in group two. Lucia hasn’t been horse riding for around 3 years and after being assessed in a private lesson was put in to group 2. Lucia is naturally quite shy and after the 1st lesson felt disheartened as she didn’t know the answers to everything and was nervous about being asked to do certain activities. 

Lucia was worried about coming back today but Chloe was brilliant, she checked on Lucia and made sure she understood what she was being asked to do. When Lucia finished she said she’d really enjoyed it and that she couldn’t wait to go again. 


I would spend everyday here....

August 2021


I have been riding at Pinkmead for a few months now. The progress that I have made in this time has been fabulous, amd I have so much more confidence.

 The facilities, horses and staff are first rate. They are so accommodating and answer any questions, either via email, or via your instructor in lesson. Nothing is too much trouble.

 I ride in the adult group lessons, not only do we work on our riding skills, we also fun! We always have a laugh which makes lessons so enjoyable (Although you do work hard, and your legs feel it! 🤣).

 You ride a variety of beautiful horses and there is an indoor and outdoor school, as well as the beautiful land that you can hack on. Every lesson is different but you always go over the basics, this ensures you can begin to develop your riding in a safe way.


I would spend everyday here if I could!


It’s a great stables and I am so pleased I found my way here!

Thank you

The grandchildren, Harry and Poppy, loved their first session on a horse. Grateful thanks to all involved for help - Louise had a lovely manner with them. 

They are now lobbying their parents for more lessons but as they live in Croydon it won't be around here until they come to stay with me again!

I was very impressed with the whole setup including admin for answering all my queries. 

Grateful thanks.

Best Week Ever!

August 2021

Sonya & Elsie

We can't thank everyone enough who helped with the Pony Care week at the start of the month. My 7 year old daughter attended and in her words 'had the best week EVER'. 
Each day she came home so excited about everything she had learnt and the friends she had made and couldn't wait to go back the next morning, it's all we have heard about since! 
Ella, Harriet and Penny were fantastic and definitely made it a fun, educational and inspiring week for my daughter.  Elsie can not wait now to do more days like these, keep having her lessons and join Saddle Club next year.
Thank you Pinkmead x

Such encouragement at every lesson , she comes home beaming every time ….. and it doesn’t matter who she has teaching her , Louise , Chloe , Tash or Penny it’s always the same ……

Sky VIP Riding Lesson

July 2021

Jo & Annabelle

I just wanted to email to send my sincere thanks for this evening. My little 5 year old came for her first ever riding lesson as part of the sky competition. I just wanted to say that I was so impressed with this. The instructor was brilliant and so kind and patient with the children and really took his time to answer all their questions. All the other people involved with the session were just so lovely - please do send on our thanks. I couldn’t believe how much they did in this session. It felt like such a special experience and we are very grateful.

Birthday Party

June 2021

Hi, I just wanted to say how much Lila and her friends enjoyed the pony party. Penny was really great at encouraging everyone, spotting who needed a bit of extra help and accommodating my photo requests! They really enjoyed the games and being able to have a canter. I think it made Lila's year to canter round whilst her friends sang happy Birthday! 

 I would really like to impress how delighted my daughters are to have Ella as their instructor. Also what a difference it has made to their riding. It's so noticeable that my husband - a non-rider - can see how much more stable and secure they are in the saddle and between transitions. A big thank you to Ella!

Just wanted to confirm that my daughter has had a first lesson last night. Really enjoyed it and we were amazed as how much she has learnt at the previous riding school. And obviously this week we will be booking up further private lessons

Many thanks to everyone for Maddie's party yesterday, she had a super time. Louise was wonderful and the ponies very tolerant of the children.

Best wishes and thanks again.


July 2019

My daughter has been riding at Pinkmead since July and absolutely loves it especially now she is in the Saddle Club. She has changed so much in every way and given her focus on what she wants to do next now she has left school. P.s we will miss Jay but wish him all the best xx


June 2019

My daughter has being going for lessons and come so far with the lovely encouraging and talented people! At first she wasn’t sure but not long till she loved and progressed each lesson.
They even make my little girl who’s not horse riding yet so welcoming that at her age other than giving an apple she can’t wait till she is old enough to be more part of pinkmead and get on the horses. Xx


June 2019

This is Luna’s favourite place to be. Louise has the patience of a saint while teaching her and Luna loves her!
Everyone at this lovely place makes her feel so welcome and we love it! See you tomorrow x


April 2019

The most fun lesson I have ever had and the kindest staff. Definitely coming back .


April 2019

Please could I pass on my thanks to all that assisted on Saturday to make my daughters party an amazing experience.  Your riding school is fantastic, all the girls that helped and the lead organsiser of the party were just full of energy and a credit to your staff.

Again thank you and I will see you all again in a few weeks for Emily's friends party for another afternoon of fun.

Dear Mandi, Just felt I needed to tell you how brilliant your staff are at Pinkmead . As you know Boo has been teaching Lily on Cav , who is amazing at her job, but after having a lesson with Owen and Alice it was apparent they are both excellent too. Their knowledge, understanding and teaching methods are brilliant , and Lily and Cav are coming on really well. You should be very proud of your staff, and please let them know.

Thought it was about time I gave pinkmead a review that they so deserve....
We came here a year ago after having a bad experience at another yard....
Being a novice rider and having bought an ex racer I needed all the help I could get and I really don’t think I could have chosen a more perfect yard....

EVERY staff member in one way or another has contributed to where Billy and I are today
and I can’t thank them enough....
I’ve also made lots of friends and my fellow yardies (liveries) made me feel right at home straight away and have done nothing but support and advise me.....

Thanks again pinkmead for all your support

Zoe and Billy :)

My daughter is absolutley loving riding lessons here very welcoming and the ponies are very well cared for! Highly recommended for riders of all ages especially children 😀😀


May 2018

Excellent. Booked a beginner lesson for my mum, sister and I for my mums Birthday. The instructor was brilliant and we were made to feel really safe. The horses were matched to our heights and weights and we had someone alongside us at all times. We were all very impressed to be trotting by the end of the lesson and would recommend this to anyone interested in trying this out. Prices were very reasonable and hat hire also an option.


Luna started riding here when she was 4years old but had to have a couple of years out while ironing out issues with school and she has been diagnosed with autism and sensory processing disorder. Now we have a better understanding of her needs she has restarted her riding and everyone has been so patient with her and her confidence has grown massively! Thank you so much for your amazing support and wonderful ponies (especially Luna’s favourite Teddy) Most amazing riding school.


March 2018

Amazing experience for young children, food was really nice, the restaurant was full but they still managed to find us a table. Sally who worked at Pinkmead was so helpful & went that little bit further to make the party special for not only the kids but the grown ups. Thankyou x


March 2018

Fabulous, just fabulous. I love the fact that lessons can take place indoors too and not just outside. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, easy to book lessons over the phone. The restaurant is fantastic and so is the location. My daughter loved her Half Term Trial Ride


Feb 2018

I have been to Pinkmead several times and have always received excellent service.My little girl had her 6th birthday party there and she absolutely loved it as did all her friends. She tells and shows everybody her rosette she received, and that she got to choose her horse as she was the birthday girl. We have also been to all the events where she is always eager to get back on one of your lovely horses. The staff have always been very friendly and the horses look very well kept....

Our daughter, Emily has been riding at Pinkmead since December, she had her first lesson on Christmas Eve after many months of asking for lessons. She was only 5 years old when she started and I was a little apprehensive about it as she looked so small on some of the ponies! All of the staff are friendly, knowledgable and really care about what they are doing, that shows in how well looked after the ponies and horses are. Emily had two teachers before Boo took over teaching her level (level one) and what an amazing impact this has had on Emily's progress and confidence. Boo is patient and really knows how to get the best out of people, her firm but nurturing approach with praise that is energetic and meaningful has enabled Emily to excel and reach level two quickly. Boo has made a lasting impression on Emily, who really looks forward to seeing her every week and really takes on board all of the tips Boo gives her, practising them at home. Boo is approachable and always happy to answer any questions I've had, taking time to provide reassurances. Boo also takes an interest in who Emily is as a person, not seeing her as another pupil but as an individual which means so much. It really is the teacher that makes all the difference and we are so thankful that Boo is Emily's, not only is she amazing but we feel confident that Emily is in the safest on hands when riding under Boo's instruction and really cannot thank her enough for nurturing and growing Emily's love for horses. Boo is a very special person and we hope she gets to see this.
