Riding Holidays

Short Riding Instruction Courses and Riding Holidays

We offer hacking, instruction and mannered quality horses and ponies in an ABRS/BHS Approved small and friendly yard. We cater for all levels and the nervous and novice especially welcome.

If you wish you may work towards your ABRS Progressive Tests. Our hacks pass through roads and tracks, bridleways, woodland, coastal and moorland.

Our riding holidays are customised to however long you want and whatever you want (within reason!), whether it be more weighted towards instruction or hacking.

There is self-catered accommodation available in the Farmhouse. Click here to go to our accommodation page and find out more.

On the last day we may do a small gymkhana with fun games, small show jumping courses, quizzes, adapted to the level of our riders.

Please contact us for further details.
