For all the riding folk amongst us the Island presents you with hundreds of bridleways, peaceful country lanes and open sandy beaches – it’s a wonderful and welcoming place for horse riders.
Whether you want to bring your own horse or would like to join in with an accompanied ride, the Isle of Wight offers it all.
With regular rides from stables across the Island, the choice of cantering over the sands beside the sea or trotting down quiet country lanes under dappled light is yours.
From lessons for children and complete beginners to advanced courses in dressage we have the full range of practical horse riding skills on offer.
Did you know the Isle of Wight has its very own Grand National?
Taking place in March every year the Grand National Scurry is held at West Ashey Farm, near Ryde.
