FANTASTIC WOODLAND TREKKING
About the Trekking
Idyllic Trekking For Beginners or Experienced Riders
Set in the beautiful Dorset countryside, a stones throw from the New Forest National Park, our treks set off into the vast Westmoors Plantation. With tracks that go on forever, stunning forest that homes a variety of deer and birds of prey, we offer treks from 45 minutes up to 2.5 hours. The treks up to 1.5 hours are suitable for both beginners (even those that have never ridden!) or experienced riders, the treks 2.5 hrs+ are suitable for advanced riders only.
The parking is located onsite, come through the main gate and drive slowly down towards the right and park opposite the arena. The gate MUST be closed behind you! £1 per vehicle payable on the yard and is donated to Macmillan Cancer Research.
We can provide and help you to fit a riding hat free of charge! We have a large variety of sizes and even provide a sanitiser spray! We ask that all clients wear long trousers with sturdy and enclosed footwear. Hiking boots or wellingtons are fine! You will not be able to ride with a rucksack so be prepared to leave it in a car or in the office. All possessions left in the office are entirely at your own risk and the yard cannot accept liabilty for lost or broken items.
Eastmoors Riding School holds a 5 Star Rated Licence by Dorset Council. This means that our standards of Horse Welfare, Health & Safety Practices and Staff Qualifications and Experience have far exceeded the standards required!! Our horses quite literally want for nothing!
