  • Enchanted landscapes, green hills, people always happy and smiling, I fell in love with Ireland, and it really left me in the heart, Oakwood stables is a fantastic place, frequented by people who are capable and friendly. . I learned, certainly, here to live alone, without suffering the separation from my parents, Amanda, Gary and guys made me feel like part of a second family.

  • I have always wanted to start riding but could never find the time with a busy work schedule. Recently I had the opportunity to start riding as a beginner in Oakwood Stables and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience under the expert guidance of Gary and James.

  • My holidays in Oakwood Stables were fantastic! There I rode fantastic ponies and I met many new friends! Amanda and Gary are special people and they looked after me very well; like if I stayed at my home. I can't wait to return there next summer!!!

  • At Oakwood stables there is a lovely atmosphere. In the summer I love when all the students start to arrive, it’s so exciting. I meet lots of new friends and have a lot of fun. Amanda and Gary are amazing coaches and they help us to improve our riding skills especially showjumping.

  • When I came to Oakwood Stables for the first time ... I didn't know anybody and I was a little bit scared thinking at what I could find there! But only after the first day, when we jumped same funny obstacles and I started having fun! So last year I returned at Oakwood stables and also this time I was very happy to find the friends I made the first year!!I want to come back to Oakwood this summer and I' m sure that I can find again some marvellous friends and ponies (like Zarina)

  • I spent a wonderful two weeks with Amanda, Gary and their children who always present at any difficult moment! I had some fantastic moments with them and with the new friends I met there! I'm really happy I decided to go to Oakwood Stables because, while learning my favourite language, I had fun and met people I'm still in contact with! I wouldn't replace it for any other location.
