Learn to Horse Ride

Learn to Ride Package

Our three day learn to ride package is ideal for beginners/novice and rusty riders; perhaps you haven’t ridden for years and would like to get to know your horse, before a gentle beach ride. Or maybe you can ride but would like your non-horsey partner/friend to experience the sport you love. It is also ideal for families wishing to ride together.

The 3 day package can be over a weekend, or midweek. Accommodation for your two nights stay will be at a local B & B. Or if you wish to book your own accommodation pick our riding only option.

 Itinerary & Further Information

Sample Itinerary

Day 1 – Arrive at stables 1.30pm. Lesson and ride 2-4pm. B&B.
Day 2 – Preparation  Ride 10am – 12pm. B&B.
Day 3 – Preparation and Ride 10am – 12pm.
Times can be flexible by prior arrangement.

On day 1 You will need to arrive at the stables for 1.30pm, where we will introduce you to your horse and instructor for the afternoon. You will learn the basics of how to tie up, groom and tack up your horse before the ride. This will be followed by a lesson in the arena where you will receive instruction in controlling your horse and getting the feel of him before your first ride out.  If you are feeling confident, you will be given the opportunity to try rising trot.

On day 2 You help to groom and tack up your horse and after a quick refresher, we set off on our beach/dune ride. Once again, this will be an instructional but relaxing ride, with plenty of time to enjoy the spectacular scenery. There will be several opportunities to practice your rising trot, for those who would like to, and to canter if you are able.

On day 3 You help to get your new friend/horse ready for a final 1 1/2 – 2hr beach ride, with more opportunities to practice your new and improved skills.
