Business overview

This business provides birthday parties, grooming ponies and riding

Stepney Bank Stables is a unique equestrian centre situated in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne. Our superb team of qualified instructors and well mannered horses provide horse riding lessons ranging from beginner to advanced.

Our riding school is approved by the British Horse Society (please see their site for our rating bhs.org.uk) , Association of British Riding Schools and the Pony Club of Great Britain. We offer internationally recognised qualifications.

The centre has both indoor and outdoor riding arenas allowing year round equestrian activities. The family atmosphere and customer care centred approach make us the ideal choice for both adults and children learning to ride. We also provide horse mad youngsters with a range of additional activities to satisfy their thirst for pony fun!

Good overall

Excellent for young beginners and very popular.As they progress teaching is about technique and control which lacks a fun element.Once the reach a competent level 3 riders seem to stay there for a considerable time which can lead to boredom. A new level 3 advanced has been recently introduced to remove this ceiling. Level 4 is mainly the preserve of adult riders from outside who have many years experience.Overall there are hardly any boys. There is an outdoor arena for private lessons but no provision for hacking or outdooor riding. Instructors are pleasant and competent as are office staff and all employees and volunteers.The most impressive aspect is that done by the yard staff.Horses are well schooled,beautifully presented and well matched to their rider. Everything to do with the yard works like clockwork.Very impressive.

Fantastic Riding School

Having ridden at a number of riding schools in the North East I would highly recommend Stepney Bank Stables. The lessons are fun and challenging, the horses are beautifully schooled and looked after and the instructors are knowledgeable and know how to get the best out of students.

Great opportunities for all

Stepney Bank Stables is a great place to ride and learn about horses. My children (13 & 6) enjoy riding at different levels. The under 5 lessons are great for young children. All of the horses are staff and the instructors are very knowledgeable and professional.

Great starting point

This stables is a great starting point for all riders. After a while it may seem right to move on to another riding centre but in all i can not fault.
