*Riding Ability
In order to fully enjoy the magic of this overnight ride you will need to be either a strong intermediate or an experienced rider with a high level of riding fitness.

Strong intermediate who is currently riding regularly and is comfortable and competent in all three gaits outside of an Arena; able to post or sit to the trot; have an independent seat while cantering (don’t hold onto the saddle).

Advanced a frequent rider who is very fit, comfortable in the saddle for at least 4 hours per day, and has an independent seat and soft hands. Advanced riders are confident on a forward-moving horse at all paces over rough and variable ground on open terrain.

This ride has a number of steep hills and narrow tracks that require a confident rider. 

If you used to ride regularly but have not for a few years we strongly recommend building up some saddle hours before the ride. Your bum will thank you later!
