lesson at the riding schoolLearn to ride:
Travel-quest's horse riding tuition holidays section lists pony and horseback riding holidays, residential courses, weekends, short breaks and training camps offering horse riding instruction, coaching and tuition – from learn to ride courses for novice riders, to improvers courses and training, and coaching for experienced riders.


These types of holidays and courses will usually be based at a riding stable or equestrian centre and the training will take place in an indoor school, an outdoor manege or arena, or on the hoof out on bridleways, riding trails, in fields and in the countryside. They may be offering lessons in the traditional English riding style or in Western horseback riding. The main focus of the holiday or course should be the riding instruction and that should be the predominant activity offered.


See our equestrian and horseriding index for separate sections covering other types of riding holiday, including trail riding trips, day hacking, and horse or pony trekking from a fixed base.
