Beach riding is a totally different experience to riding in the country; the beach surface is always flat, so if you’re cantering you’re aware that the going is always very good because the sand is always pretty much the same consistency, so the horses can get a bit of a toe in and bounce off a little bit, which in turn allows the horse to be more confident and have a much more relaxed and enjoyable ride.
Horse riding holidays on the beach are a must whether you are an experienced rider or if it’s your first time.
