RIDING BOOT CAMP

Dressage boot

Whether you are a fitness fanatic wishing to add horse-riding to your outdoor pursuit CV; a keen rider who likes to keep in shape; or a serious athlete looking for an active break; Hills Farm Stables Riding Boot Camp could be the activity weekend for you!

Arrive Friday mid-afternoon and meet your hosts for the weekend:- former international triathlete Melissa, her mother Jackie, and their four-legged friends before heading off to either the beach or a local pool and health spa for a splash before a delicious home-cooked dinner. This may be a boot camp, but we don’t skimp on comfort, food or wine- you are on holiday after all!
