Horse Riding for Everyone in the Yorkshire Dales

Thousands of people visit the Yorkshire Dales every year to explore the rich heritage, beautiful scenery, and varied landscapes that await the intrepid rural explorer. You can find a bit of something to suit all tastes in the Yorkshire Dales, whether you are a nature-loving hiker, a keen cyclist looking for new challenges, or even someone who prefers the buzz of the city and bustling towns. You could even find somewhere in between if you wanted. The Yorkshire Dales is a place of both peace and activity. You can retreat to a quiet country cottage and hide away for a few days, or you can stay in a stylish hotel in the centre of town, where you can shop and socialise to your heart’s content.

A Great Place to Learn Horse Riding

Another popular Yorkshire Dales pastime is horse riding, and there is simply no better place to do it. The quiet country lanes and open fields are perfect for riding, and you can find a wide variety of routes and pathways to explore. It is easy to bring your own horse if you want to, and find local accommodation that suits the whole family. Or, if you are a beginner, you will find lots of options for riding lessons that can set you on your way. Perhaps you have always wanted to ride a horse, but never quite found the time or the confidence. You could take a horse-riding holiday and fulfil your dream in a location that inspires awe and wonder. There are many fully licensed riding centres that offer lessons, pony trekking and organized countryside horse rides throughout the area. All of these riding centres have been established for many years, and the teams that run them are trained and experienced to the highest possible standard so that you can enjoy a relaxing, rewarding and invigorating horse riding holiday.

Tailor Your Holiday to Your Family

Horse riding is very much a part of the British cultural identity. People have reared horses, trained them, and worked with them for centuries in all walks of life. In the Yorkshire Dales you can explore more of this rich heritage while you enjoy a riding holiday with your own beloved horse. You can arrange for a family getaway, and find accommodation that is equal parts practical, suitable and luxurious. With such a wide range of riding centres to choose from, you can find the one that suits your family perfectly. There are those that cater more for experienced riders bringing their own horses, and there are centres that offer specialist beginner training on how to ride a horse, and how to care for it effectively.

The Best Horse Riding in England

Yorkshire is proud to offer the best horse riding in England. Alongside the excellent service and bespoke holiday packages available from a wide selection of independent riding centres and hotels, you can partake of a calendar of events throughout the summer months. Ride Yorkshire has organised fun rides at various locations throughout July, August and September. These are a great way to get back in the saddle if you haven’t found time to ride as much as you would like. They are also wonderful social events where you can meet like-minded people and their horses. After a day spent out in the Yorkshire Dales with your horse and your friends and family, you can relax in the comfort of a local pub or restaurant while your horse receives expert care in the stables of your choice.

Your horse-riding holiday can be as long or as short as you wish it to be. Perhaps you are a beginner and you just want a few lessons, and maybe a trial day of riding close to the training centre. Not a problem! Then you are free to spend the rest of your holiday exploring the Yorkshire Dales on foot, by car, by train, or a mixture of all. Maybe you want to bring your horse on holiday and have a weeklong trek or a series of shorter rides during the course of your stay. You can do this just as easily, with a support network of professionals on hand to assist with the care of your horse and give you the freedom to relax and recuperate. Horse riding in the Yorkshire Dales really is a fabulous alternative family holiday.
