"No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle"
Winston Churchill

Enjoying a milder climate and more sunshine hours than most other parts of the UK has made the Isle of Wight a popular destination for holidays and short breaks. Add in hundreds of miles of off-road bridleways, spectacular landscapes and dozens of sandy beaches the IOW is the perfect destination for a UK horse riding holiday.

Our two equestrian holiday packages are flexible to suit riders of any ability from complete beginners to novices and advanced riders with a choice of on-site riding lessons, including tuition in dressage and show jumping. A safe on-site trail ride is available for riders of any age or beach and trail rides which can be guided or self-guided for guests bringing their own horse or choosing to hire one of our horses. See below for details of what the riding holidays include.

Beach Riding on the Isle of Wight

Being centrally located on the Island, there is a good choice of different beach rides within easy reach of the riding centre. Trips to the beach are organised around tide times and include Ryde, Yaverland, Yarmouth and Bembridge beaches. Early starters can enjoy a full cooked breakfast at their destination whilst afternoon rides can be accompanied by a cream tea.

Trail Rides on the Isle of Wight

Large parts of the Island are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and what better way to see it than from horseback. Our trail rides are a great way to explore the Isle of Wight and make friends within a group ride. Riders of any ability can participate with experienced guides on hand and safe horses happy to follow the rest of the group. For the more experienced riders, we are happy to provide bridleway maps allowing you to choose your own rides.

Bring Your Own Horse

The Isle of Wight is easily accessible for horse boxes and lorries (with special ferry travel rates available) and we are happy to provide DIY, part or full livery for the duration of your stay, so why not give your horse a holiday too!

Learn to Ride

Our horse riding holidays will give beginners and novices the chance to learn to ride and develop their skills in a relaxed, friendly environment with lessons from our qualified instructors on horses and ponies that will be matched to the riders’ ability.

Riding Lessons

Following an initial assessment, our instructors will tailor lessons to suit your goals which can include dressage and show jumping tuition or developing your confidence in the saddle. Our ABRS approved riding school on the Isle of Wight is staffed by our team of experienced, qualified instructors. We are a fully insured riding school and all of out staff are first aid trained, DBS checked and qualified. We offer disabled and wheelchair-friendly riding lessons and cater for all ages and skill levels.

Accommodation

Our luxury self-catering accommodation can cater for between 2 and 12 guests at a time so groups, families and individual riders are all welcome. Some of our cottages have been purpose built to cater for disabled guests, with downstairs bedrooms and wet-rooms suitable for wheelchair users. As an RDA accessible kite mark centre, we have accessible riding facilities and qualified instructors on site too.

Guests can enjoy a continental breakfast in their accommodation or the occasional cooked breakfast when out on an early morning beach ride. In the evenings we have a selection of local eateries close by or why not enjoy a beachfront cocktail or cosy country pub around the Island.

The Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight has lots of activities for non-riders too including golf, cycling, walking, sailing, clay pigeon shooting, go-karting, paragliding and various water sports. Visitor attractions start right next door at Monkey Haven or a short walk to Butterfly World. A short drive takes you to Robin Hill, Blackgang Chine, Carisbrooke Castle, Osborne House, Godshill Model Village, The Needles Landmark Attraction, Isle of Wight Zoo, Amazon World. The list goes on… Why not try the Isle of Wight Steam Railway or even go on a dinosaur hunt……OR just relax on one of the award winning beaches.

For our wheelchair users and those with limited mobility, read our blog post on exploring the accessible Isle of Wight.

Facilities

Opened in 2017 our facilities include a 60m by 40m outdoor fibrewax sand school and an on site off-road hacking track. Towards the end of 2018, we will be launching our indoor riding arena which will include a café, restaurant, shop and classroom as well as a fibrewax 60m by 25m sandschool for year round all-weather horse riding lessons.

So why not give a UK riding holiday a go and explore the Isle of Wight from horseback!

  • keen to learn, an open book
  • Would be perfect for mother child combo

September 2017, I spotted this young cob. At a guess about 18 - 2 years old. It was in good bodily condition, not fat, not thin, but it had a set of shoes nailed on, not by a Farrier, but by an "amateur". Shoes were far too big, nailed on with ordinary nails!

I liked her and bought her. There was just something about her. She wasn expensive, but not cheap either. We ran her on for two years until the autumn of her third year.

We sent her away to be professionally backed, leaving plenty of schooling to be done. Never sick or sorry, keen to learn and does everything asked of her.

Totally genuine, neighs when she sees you. Comes to call. Easy, safe, comfortable ride, with a long straight stride, no dishing, LOVES JUMPING. She’s hacking and schooling well etc and ridden by children and adults. She would suit a mother and child.

Such a pony deserves the very best home I can find for her and that is my mission. If you have the facilities and are genuinely looking to buy, come and see her. Flu jabbed.

Open to any vet. She may be seen at the yard where she is located for sale.

I am looking to find this super pony a 5 star forever home where he will be loved and appreciated for what he can still do well. It is in his best interests he doesn't jump or school or be ragged about (due to old injury, 100% sound and has been for 3 years) so no irresponsible riders need apply! I would say he is too forward going for a novice.

In no hurry to sell, the right home is of upmost importance.

May suit small competent adult looking for a new friend to enjoy hacking, pleasure rides and possibly some showing as a very nice pony? Also he is a very kind companion.

Sad sale but he really deserves more attention, a job and his own 'special person', only for sale as no longer have a suitably sized groom to keep him going.

Up to date vacs/teeth and currently shod in front. No vices.

Price includes full kit and some rugs.

Please no time wasters or inexperienced, he is not a first pony.

I have owned jazz for two years, brought straight from breeder.

Jazz is fully registered Welsh Section D mare born 2011. Black with four whites. She is snaffle mouth with me all the time mainly in sand school and in a 20 acre field, she is not at all strong.

Jazz is kind natured in an out of the stable, well used to children, prams and dogs. good to catch and show. Jazz is eager to please in her schooling. I have never attempted to jump her as i don't own any jumps so i cant say how she is to jump, she is a blank canvas in that respect.

Jazz has been turned away all winter and has come back in, is rugged and has started light work. She was out for 6 months + got her in, tacked up and she didn't put a foot wrong, she isn't one which needs riding every day or lunging. Although due to her low mileage isn't a kick along plod. She would suit competitive teen or small adult as she is approx 14.1hh.

Jazz comes with a snaffle bridle, outdoor medium weight combo rug, stable rug, travel rug and a combo show rug and a brand new lycra hood plus any boots etc I find.
