If you love horses but haven't been around them much, then a pony trek is the perfect way to build up your confidence on horseback while enjoying beautiful scenery – and at a slow enough pace to appreciate it. Saddle up and follow your guide through winding woodland tracks, up forested hills, or across wide windswept beaches, enjoying the view and the company of your horse, and getting used to the motion of riding. On a pony trek you'll learn to use your legs and the reins for steering and to ask your horse to move or stop. You might even have a chance to try a trot if you feel confident enough. Fun and accessible, trekking's a great way into riding, and may just be the start of an addictive horsey habit you never want to kick!
