I'm April and I've just moved to London from New York. I'm looking for a stable to ride at (lessons, hacks, anything that gets me on a horse) and also a horse to loan/share. I ride hunters/jumpers but I'm interested in dressage as well. I realize I may have to travel out of the city a bit. If anyone has any tips on where to start looking I'd really appreciate it.

Someone I know who rides recommended this operation

It's near Paddington station and Hyde Park.

I like Mottingham Farm (020 8857 3003). It's not far on the train from London Bridge and not expensive.
Nothing too fancy but the horses are great. Say hello to Hooligan from me if you go!

Ah Mottingham farm, Beetroot..the times we sat in the car while my daughter had her lessons in the Menage then graduated to the long hack. she loved it there, we have many nice memories there with the little jack russells they had then..aah happy days..It was friendly too.

I think she went to the one at dulwich near the harvester but liked mottingham better.

There's still a Jack Russell, Jan. Likes to jump out and put the willies up your horse!

I used to go here:

many moons ago but it's tricky to get to by public transport.
