The perfect place to start riding

Beginners Riding Package

Horse riding for the first time

Our Beginners Riding Package is a fantastic introduction to horse riding for first-time riders. Our qualified instructor, who has extensive experience in teaching beginners how to ride, will lead you through the week, ensuring that each day you build on your newly acquired riding skills.

Everything a beginner needs

The aim of the week is to teach you everything you need to know so that by the end of the week you will be able to comfortably trot and – depending on progress – canter independently. We will also teach you how to care for you pony/horse, how to tack up, to understand road safety and general stable management.

At the end of the week we can tie in all your learning with a 4-hour pub trail across the moor to the pub in St Breward. You can enjoy putting your new-found skills to the test by steering your way over Bodmin Moor, past gorse bushes and through rivers. The Pub serves excellent local food overlooking the village green. For non-riders there are plenty of activities within a short drive – from a round of golf at Bowood Park in Camelford to guided walks on Bodmin Moor or the South West Coast Path.

A typical day will consist of:


  • A short walk in the morning to the riding yard where you will feed and groom your pony/horse.
  • Beginner’s riding a lesson.
  • Mid-morning break.
  • Further lectures and demonstrations on horse care, stable management, horse management, how to exercise a horse safely, road safety and protective equipment.
  • Afternoons at leisure for sightseeing or further riding by arrangement.
