When my son was little we all used to go riding at a place in kimberworth, I'm afraid I can't remember the name of it but she had some lovely horses, not far from the meadowhall roundabout.

Probably a bit too far out for you but there's a woman in Shatton Bamford who my son continued his riding lessons with, called Janet. She's very good too.

How old is your daughter, if she is under 5, you may find it harder to find somewhere. Please make sure the riding stables are registered and insured to give lessons.

Howarth Lodge Equestrian Centre, Howarth Lane, Whiston, Rotherham is a good one - I used to work there years ago on a YTS and judging by the pictures on the website it looks better now!

Hiya, thanks I did used to ride at springwood on roger and candy but it was a bit too much money and distance. I had my lesson at prices and it was good, the teacher spotted my usual faults and the horse was responsive, good arena. Think Ill be going back!

I would very much recommend Cowley Riding School in Holmesfield. I moved to there from another riding school last year (as I didn't feel I was making any progress there) and I'm extremely impressed with the teaching, the horses and the yard in general. The instructors are very experienced and in many cases ride competitively up to a national level themselves. It's 20 for a group lesson, which is considerably cheaper than most riding schools.
