7 nights, 6 days accommodation with us

If your idea of heaven is just being around horses, or you want to learn more about their general day to day care this could be the ideal holiday for you! It's a chance to have a real hands on experience, spending all day enjoying the company of horses. 

About Our Horse Care Holidays

We are a very friendly small yard and after a short induction, you will be treated very much as part of the team. All abilities are welcome - you do not even need to be able to ride as we will help you to gain basic riding skills during your stay! Unfortunately we are only able to offer working holidays for over 16's unless accompanied by a parent. 

An average day will start with breakfast for humans and horses, followed by the inevitable mucking out. Once this is done, the more pleasant tasks follow - catching, grooming, tacking up, helping out on rides and riding! Other tasks might involve bathing the horses, tack cleaning, helping with young-stock. We try not to work you too hard and give you as much time as possible to spend time riding and enjoying horses. Our philosophy is get the mucky jobs done then have some fun!

At some point around the middle of the day, we will stop for lunch, either at the yard or on the trail. Depending on weather we may ride for one to two hours a day, which may be split into two sessions. When we finish riding, the horses are untacked, checked and groomed, then after a short break it's time for feeding and bedding down for the night, before we finish for the day and head inside for our evening meal.

During our quieter times of year, from October to the end of May, we are able to offer very reasonably priced working holidays. Accommodation at this time of year can be in our home, where you will be our guest, and we will provide all meals. We have a twin or double room available (which can be used for single occupancy.) The rooms have their own television and tea and coffee making facilities and use of a shared bathroom with shower. We have free WiFi or you can use our computer by arrangement.

From May to October when we are busy, the rooms at the house are taken by our summer staff so we are unable to offer accommodation here. However we can still offer working holidays, but you need to provide your own accommodation. Lunch will be provided by us, leaving you to make your own arrangements for breakfast and evening meals. Should you wish to arrange your own accommodation, (there are local campsites, self catering lodges, B&B's and Hotels) we can offer Horse-Care holidays at a very reduced rate. Other durations and types of accommodation can be arranged - please ask for details

We ask for a £50 deposit on the working holidays and the balance can be paid on arrival. Deposits can be paid on the Make a Payment page and the balance can be paid on arrival or just before arrival. Please email or phone us to check availability before paying deposits.
