Horse Riding on the Yorkshire Coast

Choose from our range of horse-riding activities on the Yorkshire Coast whether it be lessons to something a bit more adventurous; choose the perfect session right here!

You can enjoy exhilarating rides and quiet rambles on beaches, in forests, across moorland, along disused railway tracks, and even through the winding streets of Robin Hood’s Bay. With a staggering 500 miles of uninterrupted bridleways to explore, including the 55-mile circular North York Moors and Dales Ride which takes around four days to complete.

Many riders bring their own horses for a well-deserved holiday, a day’s trekking, or a chance to compete in one of the region’s many equestrian events. There are also excellent riding centres across the region offering a huge choice of horses and experiences, ideal for picnic rides for nervous novices or thunderous gallops.

Try Farsyde Riding Centre, perfectly positioned to enjoy the best of coastal and country scenery, with well-schooled, quality horses. Or Ride Yorkshire has designed a series of day rides to help you explore the region on horse-back.

If you love horse-riding, then you’ll find a very warm welcome on the Yorkshire Coast and North York Moors, as the horse has held a special place in our hearts for millennia! Home to chariot-driving Celts and proud Roman cavalry, the area was also the birthplace of the first thoroughbreds and is still celebrated racehorse country, with the horse usually taking centre-stage at local shows.
