We are very fortunate, at Bentley, in that we can ride out of the stables directly into lovely woodland with no roadwork. In these days of increasing traffic this is obviously great for kids and novice riders – in fact, for everybody. It’s a very nice wood, with varied scenery, interesting tracks and plenty to see – squirrels, rabbits and deer. The bluebells are splendid in the spring.

Like our lessons, all rides are graded according to the ability of the people involved. We have active rides for our regular clients and ‘walk and trot’ rides for the less experienced. In the warm weather holiday makers and families with no experience whatsoever can enjoy riding through the woods escorted by our staff on foot. Something for everyone.

Times of rides. These correspond to lesson times although rides may not be available at all these times due to obvious factors like light or bad weather.

Prices: Rides are always for one hour and cost the same as lessons.
