Horse riding holidays

Find your holiday

Explore our horse riding holidays collection

Experience your next holiday from the saddle with horse trekking, horse riding lessons and new adventures, surrounded by inspiring destinations and a full range of optional activities. Learn to trot, canter, gallop and jump in equestrian centres in Spain, Portugal, France and more.

Unbridle your free spirit

Horse riding is about more than just the horses.

It's about embracing your spirit for adventure and freedom, learning to handle and trust your horse and earn its trust in return, and -- most importantly -- swapping laughter and stories over a campfire or a glass of wine after a day of horse trekking through incredible surroundings together.

Hands-on horse riding holidays let you experience all of that in breathtaking destinations around the world.

And with professional equestrians, lifelong riders and local guides sharing their knowledge of the best trails and techniques, you'll return with new skills and one-of-a-kind memories.

Go learn to ride a horse through the sun-baked Tuscan countryside, work and live on a ranch while horse riding in Spain's Sierra Nevada mountain range, or canter through private chateaux estates in Dordogne, France.

Gallop over the Moroccan sands while horse riding on the beach, discover quaint villages and untouched trails horse riding in Portugal's countryside, or trot further afield in the Costa Rican rainforest.

Horse riding holidays with added fun

If you're champing at the bit to experience more than just horse riding, combine your riding holiday with another hobby or passion.

Trade your stirrups for a spatula on a cooking and horse riding holiday, or spend your mornings in the saddle and your evenings stretching your sore muscles on yoga and horse trekking holidays.

If you want to test your mental and physical limits, pepper your horse riding holidays with some Spanish lessons.

Whatever your hopes, you can find horse riding holidays that indulge your inner equestrian alongside other passionate riders. Never settle for ordinary.
