Riding Holidays

Relaxed, sociable and fun riding holidays

Fit and friendly forward going horses and ponies, relaxed, informal experienced guides, varied scenery, tracks, old green roads and traffic-free country lanes, open hills for the canters all leading to a friendly welcoming inn at the end of the day and in the company of a small posse of like-minded riders.

Join a ride or hire a guide

On all of our guided rides you can either join a ride on set dates or hire your own guide. If you choose to hire your own guide you can start and finish on any days & dates throughout the season.

So what do Freerein do?

Make all of the on trail arrangements

Freerein arrange your whole trail, book your accommodation, move your luggage and provide all the organisation needed to relax and enjoy your riding holiday. You can carry anything you need during the day in the saddlebags provided.

Offer bespoke or set dates

On each individual guided trail page you will see we have set dates available for you to join a group. Alternatively you can have your own guide just for your own group starting and finishing on any dates during our season.

Provide professional guides & small group sizes

Your guide is a professional adult who has undergone a large amount of training in routes, horses and customer service. Guiding at Freerein is a paid, full time profession. Our guides have lots of experience introducing people to hills and horses. They love what they do.

All of our guided rides have a maximum group size of 8 riders.
