Lovely Place

I support a group of 8 students all with Autism for riding lessons here at Bowes. I can honestly say that the staff here are 100% committed and love what they do. They have taken our most nervous child and given him the confidence, praise and so much encouragement he is now riding the horse independently and completing trots, canter and small jumps. All the children look forward to our riding afternoon and so do the staff! I would highly recommend this riding school to anyone for an amazing experience. Thanks Vicky and Chantelle for all your support and encouragement that you have given us over the last few months x

My fantastic new hobby!!

I teach children with autism. Riding at Bowes Manor has become the highlight of their week. Vicky and Chantelle have been so patient and understanding of the choldren's needs and given them all the confidence, and individual teaching, to make progress during their course of lessons. Sharing the children's experience gave me the confidence to start riding 8 weeks ago; (something I have wanted to do for many years but never had the confidence to do so). It's not easy starting a beginners class with the children as a middle aged woman! Don't know why I worried I seem to fit right in ;). I now attend every week and am really loving my new hobby thanks to Vicky and the lovely staff at the stables. If you are considering Bowes for your children, or yourself, then give it a go - you will love it! I have ridden 3 different horses up to now and love them all but Dazzle has to be my favourite - just gorgeous!

Brilliant staff and venue for horse riding

Have attended several short courses at Bowes Manor (once per week for 6 weeks) for students with disability as part of an after school social skills group. The staff are fantastic, very positive and supportive of our students. They have a clear desire to see people succeed and work very hard to ensure everyone achieves at their own level. The facilities seem good and the horses seem very well cared for. Can thoroughly recommend for anyone looking to try riding or if thinking of taking a small group.

Excellent equestrian experience for school group with Autism

Cannot praise the friendly, experienced staff and first class instruction afforded to us at weekly lessons for our groups of secondary aged students on the autism spectrum. Instruction and language were perfectly pitched to the needs of the students and the selection of ponies and horses was fabulous.
Would strongly recommend to other SEN and school groups

Fabulous, friendly staff and superb facilities with excellent instruction! Highly recommended

My daughter began riding here when she was 5 years old and has grown immensely in terms of her riding skills and confidence. The staff are not only very knowledgeable and experienced, but are also extremely skilled at recognising areas for improvement and developing this further.

Vicky, the instructor, is adept at quickly building relationships with the riders and gaining their trust. The huge range and number of horses and ponies at Bowes also allows the riders to further develop their skills and confidence riding a number of different horses.

Cannot recommend this establishment highly enough!
