Arrive today and settle into your bed and breakfast accommodation. If you would rather stay in one of our hotels then just ask at the time of enquiring and we can provide you with a tailor made quote. We have two itineraries to choose from, the beginner/refresher programme right here, or the advanced programme that follows this one. Riding can start today if you arrive by lunchtime, if you can only arrive late we can offer the riding over just 2 days.
Beginners/Refreshers start with a lunge lesson followed by a private lesson.
After breakfast you will take the short drive back to the riding stables. This morning you will have a second lunge lesson and a flatwork lesson (with a rest in between to give you time to get your breath back!) The lunge lesson will allow you to understand the motion of your horse and develop your initial balance preparing you for your flatwork lesson. Lunch may be taken in the form of a bar snack at the adjacent hotel. After lunch you will have a one hour stable management lesson that will teach you how to care for and handle your horse safely.
After breakfast in the farm house you will be back at the stables once more for your final ride, a hack along the local bridle paths in the beautiful Cheshire countryside that surrounds the stables - a great way to enjoy your newly practised skill as a confident horse rider!
Beginner/Refresher Package price of £345pp includes –
• 2 nights B&B accommodation
• 2 lunge lessons, 2 private flat lessons, 1 hack out and a stable management session
Arrive today and settle into your accommodation. If you arrive in time you can have a private lesson in the afternoon, if not your first riding day will start tomorrow.
After breakfast you will be heading to the riding stables. This morning you will have a lunge lesson and a flatwork lesson. The lunge lesson will develop a stronger and deeper seat which will enable you to influence your horse with the most subtle of aids. After the lunge lesson you will have a flatwork lesson in which you will practice the skills learnt in the lunge lesson. Lunch may be taken in the form of a bar snack at the adjacent hotel. This afternoon you can choose either a jumping lesson or a dressage lesson if you were unable to ride yesterday or you can have a hack out into the tranquil surrounding countryside.
After breakfast you will enjoy the picturesque Cheshire countryside on our special three hour farm ride with optional jumps. If you would prefer to ride in the afternoon this can be arranged.
Advanced Package price of £385pp includes –
• 2 nights B&B accommodation twin room
• 1 lunge lesson, 2 flat/jump lessons (you choose), 2 hacks including a three hour Delamere Forest ride.

What to do and where to eat:
The farm house is located minutes away from the pretty town of Tarporley, with its old coaching inns and top-quality boutique shopping. There is a host of local restaurants and pubs to choose from in Tarporley; The Swan pub has an award winning Chef, The Rising Sun is renowned for exquisite food and The Coast is one of the best Italian restaurants in Cheshire.
There is also plenty to do for non-riders. Chester is only 15 minutes away, so if you want to see Chester Zoo, The Rows or Cheshire Oaks you are ideally placed. The stables are a 10 minute drive away and are also superbly located to enjoy some of the very best hacking out across Cheshire’s rolling pastureland and into Delamere Forest.
We have put together a full range of Riding Holidays in Cheshire to suit most abilities and requirements - but we are also happy to tailor make a package to suit any personal requirements.
We inspect all the horses in our horse riding holidays to ensure the best quality holiday for you.
