Somerby Equestrian Centre is situated on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Somerby which lies on the border of the counties of Rutland and Leicestershire. This gives a perfect base for your riding holiday whether it includes Show jumping, Dressage, Cross Country or just Hacking in the countryside.
The area is famous for its hunting country and the extensive network of bridleways offering miles of peaceful off-road hacking.
We have an excellent selection of quality horses and ponies which means unlike many other riding holiday locations we have a much higher weight restriction (15 ½ stone). Many of our horses compete on a regular basis. All are well schooled steady mounts suitable for complete beginners. Whatever your level of riding experience, we pride ourselves on being able to match horse and rider to provide you with a happy and memorable holiday. We can offer a range of courses to suit any rider. From beginners courses to lessons on jumping or dressage.
Our aim is to tailor your riding holiday to your requirements so we have no set holiday programme, you design your own. You can take one of our horses for a short hack or a day ride, enjoying lunch in one of the many country pubs in the area. Or perhaps you would like tuition in show jumping, cross country or dressage the choice is yours. You get 7 hours for £160 you can take over several days if wish.
Whatever you choose, we have the facilities and experienced staff to guarantee you a great time in a friendly informal atmosphere. And if you want to bring your own horse along for a holiday we can provide a stable with hay & straw for £12 per night
There's lots to see and do nearby for the time when you are not riding or for those in your party who don't ride. There are plenty of places to stay close to the Centre to suit all tastes and budgets. For some details of local accommodation, please click here.
