Code: PRIDGW 12 month validity Hampshire - New Forest 1 person

Get a taste of what it’s like to be a cowboy or girl for the day with this Western Adventure Riding Day. You’ll learn how to care for a horse for an exciting journey in the New Forest in Hampshire.

Experience what it’s like to groom a horse, lead and rack up on the yard, and tack up before taking part in a fun Western riding lesson. Western riding is far more relaxed than what we are accustomed to in Europe, so you should feel more than capable, even if you are new to horse riding. As part of this amazing experience, you’ll also receive a delicious BBQ lunch. But don’t forget to feed your horse – with hay, of course. After lunch, you’ll spend the afternoon on a Western-style hack through the spectacular scenery of the New Forest.

What's Included?

  • Introduction and safety briefing
  • Refreshments
  • Hands-on preparation with a horse
  • Riding lesson
  • BBQ lunch
  • Ride in the New forest
  • Experience gift pack including personalised voucher and message card

What happens on the day?

On arrival at the riding centre you will be greeted by staff and offered hot drinks and a light breakfast. You’ll spend the morning learning new skills and getting to grips with your horse before taking part in a helpful riding lesson, where you’ll learn all the basics including how to position yourself in the saddle and hold the reins before you give a little kick to signal to your horse that you want to go forward. You’ll also learn how to move left and right and come to a controlled stop.

At the end of your lesson, you’ll enjoy a tasty BBQ lunch before heading off into the New Forest for a gentle Western-style hack. After your ride through the countryside, you’ll return to the ranch to give your horse a good rub down and some dinner before departing for the day.

My daughter and I just did this and it was exceptionally good. Brilliant value for money, a full day out in a beautiful part of the world, excellent food. And I don't even 'get' horses!
