The West Country stretches from Bristol in the North to Bournemouth on the South coast. The area between offers some truly exceptional riding experiences including the privately owned Rushmore Estate. For many equestrian enthusiasts the chance to canter a horse along a sandy beach is a childhood dream! On the Dorset coast, with miles of uninterrupted sandy beach we offer intermediate and experienced riders the chance to fulfill these childhood fantasies. Horse riding weekends or midweek riding holidays in this enchanting part of Britain are available throughout the year. In addition to the beach there is also an abundance of heath land and forest tracks suitable for beginners.
A horse riding holiday UK can be taken at the weekend, midweek or perhaps you would like a full week away from the stresses of everyday life. A horse riding holiday UK is perfect for relaxation and we can organise as much or as little riding as you want. Additionally, we can arrange a horse riding holiday UK for all abilities.
Testimonials from past customers:
"An excellent horse riding holiday which was exactly as described. The B&B accommodation was first class; the rides empathetically managed for riders and horses; the country was breathtaking and the horses wonderful – in excellent condition and so well cared for. A holiday which I look forward to repeating!"
"I would like you to extend our thanks to the wonderful team at the stables in Bournemouth for a great horse riding weekend. They were very professional, wonderfully friendly, helpful and informative and really made our weekend enjoyable.
The beach riding, forest and old harry rides were spectacular and very different to the terrain we usually ride and the views were beautiful."
"The beach ride on Saturday evening was stunning! It was a great ride in an amazing setting offering a variety of paces including very fast canters. Our leader was wonderful and knowledgable making the ride great fun. It truly was breath taking and the setting was sub-lime. The breakfast at the accommodation was great and all the staff were really nice and friendly especially when serving g&t’s! Perfect location and only a 10 minute walk to the stables."
