Horse Riding Holidays

Whether you're a novice rider or have spent your whole life on horseback, a horse riding holiday gives you the chance to escape from every day life and have an exhilarating up-close encounter with nature.

You can relax on slow-paced treks through some of Europe's most beautiful scenic areas or gallop through wild, open spaces, leaving the modern world far behind.

And if your new to the experience, expert lessons can help you to make the most out of an amazing new skill. For more information on horse riding, check out the British Horse Society and British Equestrian Federation, or the International Equestrian Federation.

Below we feature some of the top horse riding holidays that you can get to without flying:
