This exclusive riding destination in Wiltshire offers scenic hacks on their much-loved hunters and show ponies. Guests have access to 7500 acres of riding on the privately-owned Rushmore Estate, as well as miles of bridleways, going out in small groups of no more than four (plus an experienced guide). Riding abilities are not mixed and routes can be tailored to suit your preferences, for example if you have an interest in history then there are several fascinating trails - the area is the source of tales dating back to King John and you may even see a ghost! The woodlands and open fields offer varied riding terrain and guests who wish to are able to trot and canter along the way.
Angie and her daughter Clare are very proud of their horses who are treated as part of the family. Their tack is customised to them and a saddle fitter visits several times a year to ensure the fit and comfort. The horses also receive massages whenever it can benefit them and whilst stabled overnight they have spacious turnout fields, locally-grown forage and regular feeds. This is an excellent destination for those looking to enjoy some beautiful riding country on a smart, well-behaved mount before relaxing in comfortable accommodation and peaceful surroundings. You can also treat yourself to a massage on site if you're feeling a little stiff - Clare is a qualified massage therapist.
