What do people say about Stag Lodge Stables…

I have been riding in Richmond park from the age of 12, not from stag lodge I hasten to add, but the last 7 years myself and our various granddaughters have ridden out of stag lodge, no doubt about it Richmond park has so much to offer and when riding it opens up a whole new world.
My favourite horse to ride at present is Cleo, she is so good tempered and easy to ride. Well at 76 years of age I need a bit of reliability and comfort. Stag Lodge I would recommend.

My first ride (apart from a mountain pony in Kashmir and a camel in Tunisia) even though I am 74 and not getting any younger. Both Lee and Amelle were very patient with me and I like to think I will be back, maybe when the weather warms up a little. Richmond Park is a fantastic place for riding, especially on a weekday and the horses are real characters. Thank you, Stag Lodge.

Hi, I took my daughter to Stag Lodge today for her first pony park lesson. All I can say is she loved it! Everyone was friendly and the horses were lovely. I would especially like to thank Katie, her instructor, who was brilliant with my daughter and Comet, the pony, who was so gentle. I have since booked another lesson and Gracie can’t wait. Big thumbs up Stag Lodge

I love riding at Stag Lodge 2 with Katie (my horse riding instructor) and my friends. It is so much fun!!!!!!! All of the staff are so generous including the owners of the stable!!! I’ve had the most fun in my life here at Stag Lodge 1 and 2. All of the horses are incredibly cute including Thumbelina the Shetland and Jontey!!!


I am so happy that I decided to go to Stage Lodge for a fun activity on such a beautiful day.
From the moment I called the stables I was greeted with such a amazing staff, who made me feel comfortable with using them. The way that they really took the time for me, who has never ridden before was something very much appreciated. I also liked that this stable seemed to care so much for the horses and at such a high standard.
I couldn’t be happier with my ride at Stag Lodge and would without a doubt recommend anyone to use them for the same experience. There seemed no comparison, with such a great team, the park is stunning and the horses are beautiful and very well looked after.
Thanks for such a fantastic time, hope to see you again soon.


There’s no better place to go than Stag Lodge if you’re a horse lover like me !! 😉 I’m eleven now and I’ve been riding at Stag Lodge for just over eight years, since I was two. I have not once wanted to miss my group lessons on Sundays. My teachers make my lessons so fun ! I would also like to say thank you to Melanie – my current teacher for making my rides (on Nutmeg) so interesting and fun !! 🙂 🙂


I’ve been riding the Sat am group hack for many years, in fact none of us can remember exactly how long! Sadly, I rode my last one yesterday. I’ve also had private hacks, lessons, and brought friends to experience the delights of horse riding in Richmond Park. The folks here are amazing, welcoming, knowledgeable and patient. The horses are happy, well looked after, well trained, responsive, and patient too! This is by far the best place to ride for many, many miles – and definitely within London. Richmond Park is a spectacular location, and there is no better way to experience it than by horse back. If you’ve ever wanted to ride, anywhere, anytime – this is definitely the place to give it a go, and if you’re an experienced rider – you won’t find better than this. Thanks everyone, and take care, I’ll miss you all (human and equine!).

I have been riding at Stag Lodge for four years now and it truly is amazing. They have the cutest ponies and horses and the instructors are lovely and helpful. Great lessons and can guarantee a great time when you’re there.


Great selection of horses. My partner and I had a super hack. We will be coming back very soon!


Just had a really great jumping lesson with Louise on the cutest pony ever! Have been riding at Stag Lodge for almost 10 years now and it’s definitely the best stables in London!


Just been on an amazing Pub Ride. Nice long canters, great people, a (small!) beer in the middle, and a whole lot of fun! Great way to unwind at the end of the day. Wish I could do it every day! Thanks Rachel, and of course a special thank you to China!


I have been having group lessons every week since I was five and absolutley love it! The teachers are so nice and amazing horse men/women; I’ve learnt so much and I’m loving it! All of the horses are so friendly too!


I ride here regularly and the ponies, horses and staff are all top-notch. It’s my wind-down time and nothing beats riding in Richmond Park in the sunshine off track. Love it!


Just had to write a quick note to say how wonderful I found my first time today at Stag Lodge. Sonnet was an angel and Rachel absolutely delightful and informative as my instructor. Thank you very much – I can’t wait for my next ride next week.


Thank you so much to Eliza for taking me on the most spectacular ride I have ever been on. Despite the rain and mud it was truly the most amazing ride. Richmond Park was beautiful! Thanks again Stag Lodge! All the way from Canada!


Hi All! Just had an amazing hack at Stag Lodge Stables. The whole team is very welcoming and experienced and caters for all riders, Kylie being experienced and myself first time on a horse. Was a fantastic experience and would highly recommend to anyone thinking of riding in Richmond Park. We will definitely be going back. The horses are great, had proper character in Sherlock and Kylie was on Clio. Thanks Stag Lodge for the experience.


I had my first lesson today and it felt very friendly. There are lots of cute ponies there including Cookie and Treacle, the ponies I rode.


I’ve been riding at Stag Lodge for eight years and would recommend it to anyone – from beginners to advanced riders. Fab people and gorgeous horses!


I would like to say a massive thank you to the team at Stag Lodge Stables, in particular to Paige and Rachel. My brother and I had a great time on Saturday morning with our riding lesson and were treated really well by the girls. The horses Marni and Mrs T were beautiful! Thank you for a wonderful time!


Just to say thank you for the brilliant ride I had with Louise on Sunday just gone. Your instructors are always brilliant and instil confidence and skills every time. I found Louise particularly excellent at getting me to forget my nerves and actually enjoy myself.


Fantastic instructors! Great lessons! Thank you so much.


Had an amazing jumping lesson on Daisy with the amazing Monika as my instructor! 🙂 Even in the rain; I didn’t stop smiling! I have so much more confidence than I ever have before – all credit goes to Monika! 🙂 My first ever jump in the correct position AND in canter!! Daisy is actually amazing! See you in two weeks 🙂


Stag Lodge is Manuela’s home away from home! She enjoys the friendly atmosphere and staff. She’s counting the days to be able to help with the horses.

Just a massive thank you for making last Saturday so special. We had the best craic and that was down to your highly professional and welcoming staff and of course your amazing horses! Fiona had the best start to her Hen do so thank you so so much.


Fantastic riding school. I had the most amazing hack in Richmond Park on a beautiful, well-mannered horse. At the same time my daughter enjoyed her regular group lesson. thank you Stag Lodge!


Had a fantastic lesson today on Venus and my friend on FiFi. Then afterwards we enjoyed a coffee in the Park cafe. What a great way to start a day! Will be back next week!

Stag Lodge is definitely the best place in London when it comes to horse riding lessons, especially for beginners. Love all the horses, but my favourite ones are Fifi and Pablo! Instructors are very professional and friendly. If I could, I would be riding every day 🙂


Took my son for his first ride last weekend and had a fantastic time! Would highly recommend to anyone with young children who are stuck for ideas of how to spend time outdoors. A great way to spend bank holiday weekend.


A great place to hack, all the staff are professional and friendly. Horses are well looked after and happy. Learnt to ride here and been riding with various instructors over last six years and hope to continue for a long time yet! Evening and pub rides are a great way to round off the day, too.


Just come back from a lovely hack on Popeye with Monika! Even in the rain we had lots of fun 🙂 Long canters through Richmond Park! 🙂 Love It!


My favorite horse is William, I love him… actually I love all horses. Horse riding lessons in this stable are the best. My dreams come true here. Love it!!! Thank you.


Z Wami jazda konna jest jeszcze piekniejsza:)) Trudno to wyrazic slowami:) Po przerwie znów do Was wrócilam i tesknilam strasznie:)


Thank you Stag Lodge, especially Monika for teaching me to ride and what’s more I love it. I was a very nervous, older, absolute beginner when I began six years ago and now look forward to my rides in Richmond Park on Marnie.


Fabulous and friendly instructors, great horses (particulary FiFi) and beautiful location. The best stables for miles around.


Hi! This is such a good stables. They have taught me since I was a beginner. Now I’m jumping!!! This is the best stable ever! Thanks.
