Is this horse riding holiday suitable for me?
All members of your party truthfully sign the declaration of horsemanship
“I am able to groom & tack up, lead a horse up & down tracks which may be steep & slippery, mount & dismount and am comfortable at the trot and canter. I can deal with a slipped saddle, a horse that shies or is daunted, and can cope with gates & traffic. I do not suffer from any illness or disability which could prejudice my safety in the hills and would be able to lead my horse up or down uneven tracks. I know that I shall be riding in the hills without a guide or instructor & that I do so at my own risk. I undertake not to jump or gallop Freerein mounts & to be kind to them at all times.”
Horse riding holiday pace
As you are your own group there is no particular pressure to ride at any pace on these horse riding holidays, you can start & stop when you want, enjoy the scenery and relax. You generally cover around 15 miles per day with longer and shorter route options often available
Fitness and rider weight
You need to be reasonably fit and have a sense of adventure. There must be a minimum of two adult riders in any group. Our weight limit is 15st/95kg.
