Browsing Novice Riders

The definition of a novice rider is: “A rider who is capable of mounting and dismounting unassisted, capable of applying basic aids, comfortable and in control at the walk, moderate length posting trots, and short canters.”

A riding holiday provides an ideal way for novices to gain miles and hours in the saddle which is difficult to achieve in daily life. All our instructional programs are wonderful options for the novice rider to gain more skill, but there are also trail programs where you can get experience out of the arena. In the US, in addition to the Bitterroot Ranch in Wyoming, both the Sugarbush Tolt Trek in Vermont and Hill Country trail program in Texas are wonderful options. Travel to Latin America and enjoy the Rainforest Adventure in Costa Rica, Rancho Puesto del Sol in Mexico or Estancia los Potreros in Argentina. Further afield is the Domaine des Garennes in France, Horizon Ranch in South Africa, or the Ultimate Hekla ride in Iceland; all wonderful options for the novice rider. You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy and benefit from a riding tour with Equitours!
