The whole Old Tiger organisation are very knowledgeable and helpful, with the added bonus of Lorraine living on site, gives peace of mind for any horse owner in case of emergencies. I would highly recommend Old Tiger Stables, whether for lessons or livery services.
I've been riding regularly at OTS, including loaning, lessons and Grown Ups Club now for nearly 3 years. It's far more than just lessons, I feel like I am part of a big, supportive family.
The instructors are not only highly skilled but also incredibly patient and attentive, and have taken time to build my confidence, grow my skills and ensure it's a lot of fun, which is not an easy balance.
For me it's not just about the riding – the love and passion that the whole OTS team have for all of their wonderful horses is amazing, they have encouraged me to get involved and I've grown a really strong bond with the horses, in particular Smurf!
I can't recommend OTS highly enough, it's made the biggest difference to me in so many ways and I'm happy to be part of the OTS family.
Elle loves her riding lessons at Old Tiger Stables. The instructor is so understanding of her struggles and has helped her gain so much confidence. Elle loves the horses and it is her happy place. I can't thank them enough for what they do for Elle. All wondering caring people and horses. What a amazing place.
My husband and I got into riding just over 2 years ago, after friends of ours had been riding at OTS for almost 20 years and talked very highly of the place. We could see why straight away - such a friendly welcome for ANYONE, regardless of age. We love our teacher April, who is such a good listener, delivering exactly what we want.
I can't speak highly enough of this riding school. The staff are all very knowledgeable and they will always take the time to help, not just with my riding, but any questions on stable management etc. The horses are all in excellent condition and are never overworked. The atmosphere at the yard is incredibly friendly, while still professional.
