Arrive and settle into your chosen accommodation. Each of the options that we offer are within driving distance of the stables. You can choose to stay in a lovely B&B, a good option for single travellers or couples who plan to travel by train. You will need to catch the train into Guildford, then a taxi to the B&B. The stables will provide a transfer for each day that you are riding. Breakfast at the B&B is continental. The local village pub is within walking distance for evening meals.
For those who would prefer to stay in a traditional country pub in a rural location then you can stay in the nearby village inn. The accommodation serves high quality seasonal British food, beer, spirits and wine. Transfers are not available from here so you will need to come with a car.
This afternoon, if time permits, you will be meeting the horses, all of which have an interesting story behind them, some have even won thousands! Once comfortable you will be taken for your first ride out through the thick woods away from the hustle and bustle of the day to day work and life. Beginners will start will a lesson followed by a short hack, intermediate to experienced riders will head straight out on a half day ride. If you are arriving in the evening dont worry the riding can be fitted in to the next two days.
This morning after a good night's sleep you will head back to the stables to be reunited with your faithful steed. Today you will ride over the north downs boasting spectacular views over the West Sussex and Surrey borders, hardly touching any roads as you go. The experienced can choose to have eother a full day ride or a second half day hack enjoying fast canters over the vast fields that the race horses are trained on. Beginners will experience a second hack out.
Today is your last chance to ride. Beginners will hack and experienced riders will have their final 1/2 day ride. Take your camera so that you won't be disappointed as you enjoy your final morning ride. This is an experience never to be forgotten!

"Hi Lindsey I wanted to say Ive spent three days riding in Surrey and staying in the B&B, both of which were fantastic. Wendy at the B&B was lovely and very helpful and the staff at the yard were really friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend both.
