Get ready for proper back-to-basics, outdoor fun with a two-hour Horse Riding experience through the New Forest National Park. You’ll learn the basics before setting off on a gentle trail through the New Forest countryside.

Beginners are welcome on the ride in Western saddle, offering a more relaxed and easier style of riding. You'll start with a short joint lesson to settle you on your trusty steeds, before heading out into the New Forest. Out on the trail, enjoy incredible views as you make your way through the luscious trees and fantastic grasslands. Keep an eye out for ponies grazing - perhaps you’ll get lucky and come across one of the many fallow deer as you ride along the tree lined tracks. A perfect opportunity to experience the beauty of the area in a unique and memorable way.

What's Included?

  • Introduction and safety briefing
  • 30 minute lesson together
  • 90 minute hack in New Forest
  • Refreshments
  • Experience gift pack including personalised voucher and message card
  • Cancellation indemnity

What happens on the day?

On arrival at the riding centre, you’ll be met by your instructor and kitted out in all the necessary riding gear before being given a full briefing including safety procedures and techniques for handling your horses.

Then it’s time to mount your horses as you spend time learning the basics of riding from within the safety of the riding centre. Your instructor will teach how to position yourselves in the saddle and hold the reins before you give a little kick to signal to your horses that you want to go forward. You’ll also learn how to move left and right and come to a controlled stop and get your balance at walk and jog paces.

At the end of your joint lesson, you’ll both head out to spend the rest of your ride in the New Forest countryside before returning to the riding centre.

"Introduction to Horse Riding in the New Forest"

My husband bought me this as a Christmas gift. We had a quick safety chat, met our horse went into an arena so we can get used to our steeds and learn how to stop, and turn the horse. Everyone there had ridden before so was a quick recap for all. The ride was great, the weather was perfect too. I haven’t ridden In Around 20 years and it has made me want to start again. The girls were great and were always checking to make sure we were all OK throughout the ride.
