A wonderful pony camp for my five year old son. Gill's caring nature and sense of fun made it a fabulous week during the summer holidays. Thank you so much!

Such an amazing horsie camp, my daughters have just come home from there second camp, and had a ball.
Best idea ever for getting to know a new horse, in a safe challenging environment, caring for a stabled horse for a week gets the horse to know and trust it's new rider. Lovely bonding week had by both.
Hired a horse for other daughter and they are lovely kind trustworthy ponies.
Thanks Gill for taking such great care of our wee family. They will be back.

My daughter went on her 1st ever pony camp at Beachbrook Stables last week and absolutely loved it and did not want to come home afterwards. I highly recommend Beachbrook Stables to any Horse loving child.

I wanted to write a review to say how impressed we were with our party at Beachbrook stables.
What a fabulous afternoon we had! We went with a group of eight children aged 4-11 and they all had a blast!
The children loved grooming the ponies and leading them around, we then played some games, Gill was so patient with the children and they had lots of fun competing in teams against each other. The horse-riding was a great hit for all the children.
We would highly recommend a party at Beachbrook with Gill and her team, excellent value and a real treat! We will be going back!

I used to be a really nervous rider so bad i wasn't comfortable to ride without the lunge line most of the time, and heading to my lessons i would always get butterflies in my stomach with being so nervous, and then i met a lady who i refer to as superwoman with magical powers, also known as Gillian Hayes at beachbrook stables who within such a short space of time has given me so much confidence and I'm now troting and cantering without my safety cord and loving my lessons so much!!! Thank you so much gillian for giving me the confidence i needed and making riding so enjoyable i always leave beachbrook stables on such a buzz.- "Mandy Bentley"

Hi Gill, just a quick email from The New Zealand Womens Canoe Polo Team to say a big thank you for our awesome afternoon of Team Building Activities last Saturday. For some of the girls it was stepping way out of the comfort zone and they were terrified to hop on to the horses. In true Gill style you encouraged and helped them overcome their fear. It was a fantastic afternoon of 'team bonding', the highlight was watching those that were more confident, stepping up to help and encourage their team mates, this was great for us Coaches to see how well people interacted and coped while under pressure, of which all helps with our selections for Teams for the Canoe Polo World Cup in France in September. Thanks for accommodating us, on the Saturday, especially as we found out, on the afternoon that it was your birthday. I would encourage any other team, business etc that is looking for a fun, but challenging way to do Team Building exercises to contact Gill and Beachbrook Stables. Regards Peter Housiaux, Head Coach New Zealand Women's Canoe Polo.

What an amazing place for kids( and Mum ! ) to learn and love everything about ponies! My daughter had the best week with you guys, thank you for building such fantastic memories for her. Your safe, caring and family environment made it really easy for her to be confident and to learn so much in a week. The gymkhana was her highlight and her ribbons hang very proud in her room ! Thank you so much !! "Kelly Meyer"

A big THANK YOU for the wonderful afternoon evening we had with you and your team - all I can say from a non-horsey girl was the afternoon was amazing. We have done many team building things over the years with our staff (rafting, paintball, go-karting, high ropes, surf), but this was one of the most challenging and fun things we have done in years.
I was impressed to see some of our staff (including me) step out of their comfort zone and get involved in the wonderful creative things you had in store for us. But did have a wee smile at some of our more "fit rugby player types" not wanting a bar of the activities (but still enjoyed watching).

Gill you run a fantastic operation, professional, safe, challenging, but fun, you and your staff were on hand at all times to push us, but to also assist and encourage us when you needed to. The dinner and drinks that you organised for us afterwards wound up what was a perfect afternoon for the Concrete Doctors. Thank you so much. If any other business/ group want a top Team Building Event to do , then I highly recommend Beachbrook Stables.
Thanks Gill and I am sure you will see Pete and I again.
