England

Most of Britain is too built up to provide unbroken countryside for riding tours but this area is more rural and offers chances for long canters in unspoiled, open stretches.  Cornwall is on the extreme southern tip of England on a long peninsula reaching into the sea.  Like Wales, Scotland and Ireland it has many Gallic place names and retains cultural connections with other Celtic regions including Brittany.  It has the sunniest and most temperate climate in England.  The 400 mile coastline with 700 ft. high cliffs in places shelters picturesque fishing villages in protected coves.

Mixed weather and rain showers should be expected as it is the rain that keeps the grass green and the horses sleek and shiny! Be prepared for wet days with proper rain gear (waterproof jacket and pants).

Discover Cornwall: The Gateway to Bodmin Moor

Riding the moors of England Monday’s trail along the wooded valleys of the Camel Trail to Hellandbridge and beyond was simply magical. Clouds were still rolling in and out but the secluded valley and the tree-lined trail offered shelter from the wind and the changing weather. Some of the trees were adorned with fresh buds and leaves and everything shone in different hues of greens – a stark contrast to the ride across the moorlands the day before when we experienced everything from windblown rain to hail.
