"Having been having lessons and loaning a horse from Cottagers Plot Equestrian Centre for three years, I can honestly say it is the best yard I have ever been to! The staff are friendly, knowledgable and always happy to help. There is a diversity of horses, catering for all abilities and tastes. Cottagers Plot offer a wide range of services and always try to cater to their clients needs. A real family environment where everyone is welcome!"

"I started off loaning Bob in 2007 and knew nothing at all about horse ownership. Now 6 years on I am an owner and thanks to all of the wonderful staff at Cottagers Plot Equestrian Centre, I have acquired a lot of skills and knowledge which have helped improve my riding and care of Bob. I hack out with Bob regularly and together we have learnt so much and have a really close bond. Thank you CPEC!"

"Cottagers Plot Equestrian Centre, in my experience has developed a friendly community of like minded people who enjoy various equestrian pursuits. I started off with a horse on loan and then bought my own horse 5 years ago. I wouldn't have been able to achieve this without the encouragement of the staff, who I have found to be very knowledgable and extremely helpful. I really enjoy riding in such a supportive environment and I've made some great friends too!"

"Having kept my horse at Cottagers Plot Equestrian Centre for over 5 years now, and after experiencing other local livery yards, I can honestly say that I wouldn't want my horse, Lloyd, to live anywhere else! I love the facilities at the yard especially the new arenas that, despite heavy rainfall and frosts, are always super to ride in with bright floodlights and a consistent, well maintained surface all year round. This is a major asset to the yard and particularly useful to those liveries who are limited to ride early or late on in the day! The staff have a great yard routine that allows me to work full time around owning a horse that competes regularly, and Lloyd is very settled and happy in this routine. There is always a friendly face to greet you regardless of the time of day- both from staff and other livery owners, along with the fact there is always someone to hack out with. My lessons with Sophie have helped Lloyd and I immeasurably, and I would recommend Cottagers Plot to anyone for livery or lessons regardless of your age or ability!

"My time at Cottagers Plot Equestrian Centre as a first time owner has been filled with nothing but positivity and support from all the staff and nothing more could have proved this when my horse became injured. Through all the staffs knowledge, expertise, care and help she is now back in work and I can't thank them enough."

"Anybody wanting to take up horse riding, l would strongly recommend Cottagers Plot Equestrian Centre. Everyone is so nice and helpful, making beginners feel relaxed and comfortable. My 8 year old daughter loves going for her lessons!"

"Cottagers Plot Equestrian Centre helped me go from being terrified of doing anything (after a bad accident at a different riding school) to happily jumping, playing games and trusting any horse I rode there. They helped me become much more confident and relaxed and always let me do things in my own time."
- Emma Hodgkinson
"Thanks to the staff and horses at Cottagers Plot Equestrian Centre, I now own two horses of my own. They helped me with improving all aspects of riding and horse care and their horse loan scheme is a must for potential horse owners. Many thanks!"
