Horse riding on the Isle of Wight presents you with hundreds of bridleways, peaceful country lanes and open sandy beaches - the Island is a wonderful and welcoming place for horse riders.
Whether you want to bring your own horse or would like to join in with a guided 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.
The Isle of Wight is a great place for novices to learn about horses. From lessons for children and complete beginners to advanced courses in dressage the Island has the full range of practical horse riding skills on offer. We are even home to a specialist equine centre that uses horses for learning and teaching life skills.
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.
Livery is available at a number of stables and with accommodation for riders close by, it’s simple to bring your own horse - why not both enjoy a holiday on the Isle of Wight!
