Centre-based Riding Holidays

A riding holiday based at a centralised accommodation, with horseback rides in different directions each day which can be adapted to differing riding levels and to your wishes. You can unpack and relax, knowing you return to the same place each night and even sit out a day and rest if you prefer. It is an ideal opportunity to share a horseback holiday with your family, as a couple or amongst friends, without wondering whether non-riders will get bored, novice riders will be overly challenged or experienced riders will be frustrated. If you wish your centre-based riding holiday to include another element such as dressage instruction or cattle work then you may wish to browse those sections of our website too, or call us for advice. There is a riding holiday to suit everyone.
