Take the reins with a horse-riding experience

Horse riding experiences for two at Charnwood Forest Alpacas are suitable for all - whether you are new to horse riding or live and breathe the equestrian life.

This experience is a great way to enjoy the picturesque countryside of North West Leicestershire. Rest assured, the ride won’t be too challenging or vigorous. Instead, it’s an opportunity to enjoy the countryside and get a taste of what horse riding has to offer.

Build a bond with your horse as you ride through the beautiful 110-acre farm and be sure to make use of the photo opportunities along the way, so you can look back on your visit and the memories you made.

You will be assisted by our experienced handlers who will help you to make the most of your time.

On weekends why not follow your horse trek with an afternoon tea experience. You’ll be treated to an afternoon tea platter served with a cup of tea or coffee. This experience is a perfect way to celebrate a special occasion or to just relax and enjoy the countryside after your horse-riding experience. Suitable for beginners.

From Boutique B&Bs to Top Notch Glamping, there's plenty of great accommodation nearby in the National Forest. Stay - National Forest
