Riding Experience

Some of our rides are only suitable for confident and experienced riders while others would suit intermediate riders or even people who have never ridden before.

Choosing the ride that is right for you is the fundamental decision for an enjoyable and safe holiday. There is no substitute to calling or emailing us. There will be someone here who has been on that holiday and can tell you what it is like. We also recommend you read the client reviews to get an idea of what other people think.

When completing the booking form, please provide us with detailed information regarding your riding skills and experience. This will help us establish that you have the appropriate ability for the holiday. The information will also be used to ensure you are matched with the right horse.

If you overstate your ability, you may not enjoy your holiday and worse, the guide may refuse to take you on the ride if he/she considers it would be unsafe to do so.

To make it easier for you to focus on the rides which might be right for you, we have classified riding ability into three broad groups, Beginner, Intermediate and Experienced.

For each ride the coloured circles at the top give you a quick guide to the level of experience that holiday would suit. Also on each page is a more detailed description of the riding that you should expect.
