Equestrian Tours in Northern Europe

Northern Europe has a vibrant horse culture and some excellent places to ride with friendly, English speaking people, beautiful scenery and fine horses.  Irish horses are famous the world over and Ireland has ideal trails for riding, comfortable inns and wonderful mounts. If you are interested in jumping, there are extensive and varied obstacle courses where you can hone your skills. In Iceland the amazingly powerful, gated Icelandic horses, which have been perfected for over a millennium, will carry you smoothly over a fantastic landscape of hot springs, fjords, volcanoes and rushing rivers. You can also ride in Cornwall through the unspoiled English rural countryside.
