There are over 30,000 ponies roaming across the New Forest and horse riding is one of the finest ways to discover its beautiful landscapes and see the wild horses.

There are a variety of stables suitable for beginners up to experienced riders but either way, you’ll look forward to soothing those muscles in our luxury spa afterwards!
