From Our Editors

There are approximately 50 horses who call Edinburgh & Lasswade Riding Centre home, ranging from cheeky Shetlands, to 17hh thoroughbreds. The horses are paired up to their rider by temperament, meaning quiet ones are paired with complete beginners, while the more adventurous horses are teamed with seasoned riders. The centre boasts both indoor and outdoor schools, and there are also plenty of hacking opportunities in the nearby forests. Horses can also be provided for beach and country rides. There is a play area to entertain all members of the family, and those not riding can visit the horses in the stable, as well as the dogs that reside in the centre.

First impressions not great. The day we arrived it just seemed a bit manic. Queue of folk waiting to be served but no staff member in sight. When staff did arrive they were short and abrupt in their speech with some customers, in front of everyone. Were taken about 20 minutes late. Staff nice enough with our girls getting them measured up for that and telling them which horse they were riding. However, commented on how 'stiff' my 8 year old got on the horse. Personally I think the horse was too far from the boxes she was mounting from. After negative comment she eventually said something along lines of 'well done'. Think that is only thing she should have said as think it didn't really make a nice start for her. Especially as was her first time mounting a horse from a box. Staff were also sharp with whom I believe are the volunteers - the kids helping lead the horses. Once on,the staff/volunteers did do a good job on getting saddle, stirrups, reins etc measured correctly for our 5&8 year old.

Fantastic experience. My granddaughter had a riding lesson. The instructor was very helpful and he taught her a lot. I wish they did a groupon for a block booking of lessons

Really good value for money. My two Granddaughters loved it. We had a chance to see all the horses and the stable dogs. Riding was well supervised. A great first time riding experience for them both. We will be back.

Staff v unfriendly. Did not make any effort to talk to my children who were riding or explain to parents what was happening or where we could view it. Shouted at us to stay behind a barrier which we had no idea was there as a barrier as the whole place just higgedly piggedly. I would NEVER go there again. Strongly recommend you avoid esp if you want to take children (mine are 3 and 5 and thankfully been on ponies so this did not put them offf though easily could have)

They are very welcome at the stables. They are very good with the people who have never been on a horse before. My daughter has been 3 times now and loves it.

Easy booking, lovely trainers. Kids enjoyed them very much learning to ride a horse and make progress even on first lesson. :)

Had a great lesson. I was nervous and the instructor put me at ease. It was a first time for me and I managed to progress further than I expected.
