Overview

Spend a day in the shoes of a cowboy (or cowgirl) with this exciting day out in the New Forest. You'll begin with an introductory briefing from your ranch hand while enjoying coffee and bacon rolls, before you head up to the field to meet your horse. After learning how to groom and tack your horse, you'll have a Western riding lesson in the arena - this is easier to grasp than the traditional English riding style and a lot more comfortable too! After a barbeque lunch you'll put your skills into practise by riding a Western trail into the forest. Your experience concludes back at the ranch where you'll untack, rub down and feed your horse before enjoying a well-earned coffee.

  • A western-style riding lesson - easier to learn than English style and much more comfortable!
