Horse Riding Pro

If you are mad about horses, whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced rider we have the perfect adventure holiday for you!

What’s it like?
If you're already a rider and simply love horses, we’ve got the perfect horsey holiday for you! As well as learning and improving your horse riding skills, you’ll help with grooming and looking after your horse and have fun with the like-minded friends all day and every day. 

What can I do?
The programme is a mixture of different activities, lessons and skills practice at our specialist partner riding centre, a short bus ride from our Tregoyd base. Weather permitting there are opportunities to go out trekking too but most of your time will be using the facilities at the riding centre. You'll also get to know your horse during the week, managing their care and working on improving your skills.

Can I do other activities as well?
Horse Riding Pro is all about horses so includes six full-on days of equestrian activities. As with all our holidays, our team will also run fun group activities every evening. 

Do I need any riding experience?
Our 'Pro' holiday is for intermediate or experienced riders and you should be confident enough to canter across an open field. All our other Horse Riding holidays are suitable for those with little or no riding experience - click here if you think they might be better for you 

Do I need any specialist equipment?
We’ll provide all the specialist equipment you need, but you must bring a pair of shoes or boots with a heel. You can bring your own jockey skullcap, but this must conform to BSI safety standards.

Activities

Every day is different

Evening activities - the fun doesn’t stop there!
We also include fun-packed evening entertainment programmes at all our centres, every day, all year round, whichever holiday you choose.
