United Kingdom

Great Britain is a country of great beauty; its scenery cannot be beaten with its rugged coastline, green valleys, lakes, castle ruins and historic cities. It is well known for its rich history and horse traditions as well as excellent horses and native breeds ranging from Welsh Cobs, Dartmoor, Fell and Moorland ponies to Clydesdales, Cobs and Cob crosses. Discover the traditional UK from horseback on the rides we offer through famous scenery in Cornwall and in County Antrim in Northern Ireland. Ride through typical villages on gentle green rural lanes and meadows and experience the unspoiled landscape.

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 some of 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.

Northern Ireland is one of the four countries of the United Kingdom, situated in the north-east of the island of Ireland. In the 1920’s, Northern Ireland officially separated from Ireland. Due to its proximity to Scotland and the sea channels heading to England and Wales, it has long witnessed generations of newcomers and emigrants.

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.
