From the New Forest Lodge we offer horse riding and carriage driving facilities for both the experienced rider to complete novice.
We offer guided horseback trails of differing lengths from 1 hour to 1 week. We also arrange horse riding and carriage driving adventures together, a great advantage for groups of differing abilities and fitness.
These guided trails often end up at a picnic or barbeque site and riders and drivers can sample some of the mouthwatering products from our famous Country Cooking School. Our stables and horses, together with our unrivalled catering facilities and large comfortable dinning hall, part of an historic stone built long barn, form an unforgettable theme for parties and other events. We have hosted birthday parties for young and not so young and several corporate hospitality and team building events.
We have stabling for a dozen horses. Our carriage barn holds five comfortable well-sprung vehicles of differing designs. We usually have at least one cart or carriage in the workshops for restoration and subsequent sale.
We accept horses at livery or for breaking and training to harness. We also train drivers of all ages. It is a surprisingly easy sport to start; we have had students from 5 to 85 and they have all enjoyed themselves, bringing horse, carriage and passengers safely home.
We are a small family enterprise and can be very flexible. Our hospitality is second to none. We speak several European languages and are waiting to hear from you.
