The Friesian Riding Experiences are run by Tracey Alexander and aimed at experienced, physically fit riders with a good understanding of the principles of schooling a horse.
Those booking this experience may be looking to learn more about how to ride a Friesian more effectively and gain a greater understanding of the differences between the types of Friesian and how to work with each individual character.
Following discussion with Tracey the day will be tailored to suit what you would like to get from your time with the horses. This can include training sessions in the arena and the opportunity to ride a variety of horses or you may like to head out on the bridleways and lanes where you can discuss with Tracey more about the techniques she has found useful when working the horses in different environments.
All our working Friesians will be available to you on the day you are here.
For those considering buying a friesian and wanting to learn more about the breed in general please book one of our Friesian Ownership Experiences
Individual or Shared?
Individual - ideal for those who prefer a more 'one to one' experience with the freedom to do and ask what you want when you want and have the ride just how you want it. Any riding will be at a pace you are comfortable with and we feel is appropriate for you and the horse you are riding.
Shared - these are best suited to couples, small groups of friends or riding buddies.
Full Days are available March to October
PEAK TIMES: May to end of September
WEIGHT LIMIT: We have a strict weight limit of 13 stone
