With plenty of properties in some of the UK’s best equestrian areas, there is some superb riding available and with your horse close at hand, you can enjoy exploring a new area, as and when you wish.
Tips: Booking independently for this type of holiday offers the big advantage that you can speak to the cottage owner directly to make sure the property/livery facilities are suitable for both you and your horse. If you are just looking for grazing, clarify the acreage available and make sure facilities such as fencing are suitable. For those looking for stabling, you may want to confirm the size and type of stable available; whether bedding and hay can be provided to save transportation and make sure there are parking facilities that can accommodate your trailer or lorry. You may want to check how close the stabling or grazing is in relation to the holiday home and speak to the owner about the type of riding that is available on the doorstep.
