Horse Riding in Bedfordshire
Enjoy a day of horse riding in the picturesque English countryside which is tailor-made for experienced riders. Begin with a safety briefing before grooming and tacking up your horse. After a brief lesson with an instructor to assess ability, take a delightful hack across the beautiful bridleways of Chiltern Hills - mainly open and undulating fields, with beautiful views across Bedfordshire and historic Icknield. Stop for lunch at a village pub before riding back to the stables for the un-tacking and resting of the horses. This is an idyllic way to take your horse riding further while soaking in some truly stunning scenery.
