Horseriding in the New Forest

Fun for all ages

Holiday Hack

The Holiday Hack (7yrs +) is Burley Villa's family, beginner ride . They settle you on your mount, helping with some basic instruction before heading out to visit the wild ponies. The instructors often walk along with this hack to assist younger or nervous riders. Please call Burley Villa directly for up-to-date prices.

Western Trails

Western Trails (12yrs +) are suitable for beginner riders. The 90 min or 2 hour trails start in the arena, getting you acquainted with your trusty steed before riding out into the wild blue yonder. The western style is a more relaxed and gentle way of riding. You don’t have to be a ‘John Wayne’, most riders have never ridden before so, ‘get yer jeans on and ride the range’. Please call Burley Villa directly for up-to-date prices.

Walk and Trot

Walk and Trot Group Hacks are for more experienced riders, competent at rising trot. If you are competent and want to canter then private rides for 90 mins or 2 hours are offered. They do not gallop or jump on the forest. Please call Burley Villa directly for up-to-date prices.
