Horse riding on holiday

Stable horses and ponies are used to being ridden by a variety of people of different experiences, so tend to be calm, easy going and compliant. The beauty of horse riding is that beginners can instantly enjoy the experience. Qualified instructors will assist you in choosing a suitable mount and help you with the basic techniques so that you can enjoy a gentle horseback ride through the countryside. There are also horses, lessons and trekking opportunities suitable for more experienced riders who want to enjoy the thrill of a more challenging ride.

Horse riding is the ideal way to experience a new and stunning landscape without being restricted by walking all the time. It is also very relaxing and a great way of working off some of those holiday calories whilst strengthening your core muscles! For children, horse riding is such a fun experience and one that the whole family can enjoy together.

Tips: It is advisable to pre-book the lesson or trek and be honest about your riding ability! Make sure you take comfortable flat footwear (if you don’t have riding boots, take wellies or trainers that won’t get stuck in the stirrups). Wear long trousers to prevent your legs being rubbed or pinched by the stirrup leathers.
