Horse Riding in The New Forest
The natural and most exciting way to see the New Forest is on horseback. The New Forest pony is one of the UK's recognised breeds of mountain and moorland ponies and noted for its intelligence, strength and "willing-to-please" temperament. Of all the native British pony breeds, New Foresters are the least afraid of man.
There are a number of local stables, and riding can be arranged for all standards. Many of our guests use the Burley Manor Riding Stables for their Horse Riding holiday.
To enable you to enjoy your horse riding in the New Forest whilst at Chewton Glen, we have composed some points to consider:
Our Reservations team can make your reservation with the stables, however the stables need to know personal details including height and weight and also your horse riding experience so they can match the right horse for you. As such you may prefer to make arrangements directly with the stables.
