Horse Experiences

There’s more to horses than dressage and jumping – unless you’re really in to dressage and jumping, in which case they're pretty much your everything. But outside of those sports, there’s actually a thrilling and ever-evolving world of opportunities just waiting to be explored by you and your horse.

Wherever your interest lies, and whatever your preferred way of going is, there will be a sport, a pursuit, a discipline, a game, or an experience that’s perfect for you.

To get you inspired, we have created a small list of activities that mixes established disciplines with exciting new ways of enjoying your time with your horse.

As ever, there is no right thing to do with your horse – it’s simply a case of finding the thing to do that is right for you and your horse.
