Bespoke Holidays

Bespoke horse riding holidays

F riders of all levels of experience

For customers who have more specific holiday requirements, we can offer bespoke horse riding holidays, designed around your individual riding requirements. This bespoke service can encompass one ride for one rider during the week, to a full week of trail riding for the whole party. Offering you complete flexibility for all riders.

Horse Riding Cornwall

Tailored to your needs

Our friendly instructor – who is BHS trained – can offer you private or small group lessons, or tuitional hacks so you can learn whilst riding out.

For the more serious rider, who enjoys longer rides of up to 7 hours (with breaks), we can offer a range of off-road trails to take you around the Moor, over tors, through water and woodland. Some trails even go as far as the North Cornwall Coast via the Camel Trail, enjoying some of the most beautiful countryside in Europe. Or you may be an experienced rider, who prefers to improve your riding in open spaces and would benefit from a trail riding experience to build confidence. For less experienced riders, a week-long confidence-building package could end with a trail ride at the end of the week.

A bespoke horse riding holiday package is designed to accommodate your individual requirements whilst you are on holiday at Hallagenna.
