First impressions of the yard are good. Stable area is kept clean, but the ground around the arena is very muddy. Stables aren't very nice for the school horses - no bedding, excess waste, no hay, water usually left to riders who feel sorry for the horses. The barn for the ponies is a similar state. Ponies are allowed to walk around, and there is some aggresive ones among them. Haynets aren't always full and water isn't good. In the lessons the teachers are sarcastic and shout at the students for no reason. They don't teach the correct way of riding, as I found when I moved to a different yard and took months to get rid of my habits. They usually have two groups in the arena at once, which is acceptable, but sometimes there is complete beginners in one half, and riders with mental horses jumping these ridiculous jumps for their age. I knew a 12yr old who jumped 4ft on a 14.3 horse. Not only does this put the rider at risk, but also the horse. There are some good things though, the atmosphere is friendly and the resturant is of a very high standard. The farm animals are a great attraction, and are all kept very well. South Causey offers a range of activities, which I would recommend to attend. Livery is of good quality, £100 a week for everything covered, including bedding, hay, feed and arena hire. Private lessons are avaliable at an extra cost. I enjoyed my time at South Causey, but for riders, I'd only suggest going there for an experience rather than regulally because it cannot be trusted to be safe and they do not always teach properly.
