Horse riding retreats

Horse riding retreats are a hugely relaxing way to enjoy the great outdoors and get fit. Here you’ll find retreats we have reviewed that either offer dedicated horse riding retreats and holidays, or the opportunity to go horse riding as part of a broader programme. Our retreats are set in gorgeous locations, such as England, Spain and Italy. Imagine cantering along a West Sussex beach in the UK, or trekking along the clifftops in Portugal. At some retreats, such as one on Menorca and another near Alicante in Spain, horse-riding must be booked in advance with nearby stables. But others dedicate themselves to horse riding and you can expect a wonderful holiday with your new four-legged friend. In Spain there’s a three-day riding retreat in the Andalucian hills, where you’ll enjoy picnic lunches in the middle of the countryside. You’ll even spend one night in a tented camp. Or head to a spa in rural Tuscany, where you can enjoy guided riding in groups or on a one-to-one basis. Learners and advanced riders are accommodated. In Portugal, your horsemanship experience starts with a grooming lesson, and your personality is matched with your steed. It’s fun, great toning exercise and you’ll feel at one with nature. Enjoy this age-old peaceful form of travel.
