The popularity of our holidays and the incredible amount of children that return year after year is testimony itself, but don’t just take our word for it!

Letter Published in Pony Magazine 2013

“My sister and I went to Wellington Riding for a riding camp after reading about it in the magazine. Charlotte rode Crackers, the same pony that the winner of the competition in PONY rode. He is a 14hh chestnut pony with a snip and a white spot on his bottom. I rode Tobias, a dark bay cob with a wide blaze. Tobias and I came 4th in tack and turnout and 4th in show jumping out of 8 on the show day, which I was really pleased with. I really enjoyed the week – one of the best moments was jumping 3 foot 1 in the chase me Charlie (putting us joint 3rd) and coming second in block elimination. Although he was definitely lazy at times, he taught me loads about riding different ponies and gave me confidence to jump higher than ever before! It was sad to say goodbye at the end of the week but we have lots of good memories, and wanted to say thank you to PONY for telling us about Wellington in the first place!”

“I want to say a huge thank you to you and your team for the wonderful time you gave C…  last week. She couldn’t have sounded happier when she telephoned us each lunchtime, and it was so impressive to see how much progress she made in her riding on Friday. She also made some good friends and she is keeping up with them via Facebook.

As a Child Psychologist I was incredibly impressed with how you organised all the girls and how well they all got on with each other.

Neither C…  nor M… a had a single area of complaint. They enjoyed every minute of it all.

Thanks again, and we very much look forward to booking the next holiday.”

“I wanted to say how much my daughter M…  loved her time with you all at Wellington. It was, she  said, the best week of her life!! Thank you so much for your care of my little girl!

I would like to book her in for next Summer..please let me know when I need to do this!!”

"I was actually going to write  a note to say thank you very much to Ellen and Sophia for your effort in making sure she had a great riding experience.  I really felt from watching the groups ride that A... was suitably placed and was pleased that she overcame a bit of her trepidation to jumping height.  She ended up with a 4th and 5th place ribbon in her group as well as the “most improved” so she was very positive on Friday, thanks again!"

“S…  arrived home yesterday evening.  She was very excited and happy.  She had a great time with you. I want to thank you for all you made for her and for the nice days she had. She really enjoyed the riding and the evenings. Thanks to the supervisors and instructors and also to the English teacher. She loved the English course!

Thank you for all the help I got from you to organize S…’s holidays. It has been a pleasure”.

“Just wanted to thank you for the fabulous week C…  had with you. She came back home over the moon and she is already thinking of a next time with you.

 On the show day I was very impressed by the teachers, how nice they were to the kids, making them feel confident on their exercises and making the parents feel relaxed.

 You have really created a super nice school and we look forward to join again”

“We just wanted to let you know what a wonderful week L…  had last week.  She came home buzzing but exhausted.  Thank you so much for also managing to put her in the same group as her friend; it was really appreciated.  Please can you let any of the staff know who helped L…  last week know what a great time she had and how much she felt she had learnt.”

A M – London

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for having E…  last week. She thoroughly enjoyed it and had an amazing time and has regained her confidence in riding.  She said it was the best thing she’s ever been to and will definitely be coming back.”

J A – Hampshire

Dear All at Wellington Riding, I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you all for the wonderful weeks holiday which our daughter, G, enjoyed over the recent half term, she had an absolute ball at Wellington.

She is pony mad and so she was in pony heaven for the whole week.  She made lots of lovely new friends and her riding has really improved too which is a bonus.

The set up at Wellington is really great – as a parent there is a real sense of security in the knowledge that the children are happy and well looked after.  The children are taught all aspects of riding and stable management at a very high level.

Many thanks to you all for making G’s holiday really special.
