Take a ride through some of the Isle of Man’s most beautiful and scenic stretches of countryside on horseback to be guaranteed breath-taking views from places inaccessible by car.
Enjoy a countryside hack, a trek through sheltered woodland, a ride through the river or along the beach-front where you’ll be able to appreciate the beautiful views across the Island.
Whichever type of ride you choose, the experience of off-road trekking will be one you won’t forget.
Many of the Island’s riding stables and equestrian centres are set deep in the countryside and give you the chance to learn the ropes in a safe and friendly learning environment or to develop your existing skills further.
As well as trail riding, the Island’s riding centres also offer indoor training, jumping practice and individual and group sessions.
If you’re keen to get off the beaten track, visit Ballahimmin Riding Stables
in Kirk Michael. The stable is open all year round and specialises in off-road trekking with all rides led by experienced guides.
Or why not try Ballachurry Equestrian Centre
in St Jude’s for individual and group lessons for visitors of all ages. The centre is open all year round and offers beautiful river and beach rides so you can take in some of the Isle of Man’s unique landscape.
Alternatively, Pennybridge Stables
in Kirk Michael also welcomes individual and group lessons and runs both beach and countryside hacks. The stable is open all year round but closed on a Friday.
Or for something really different, Triskelion Polo Club
in Malew welcomes experienced and novice riders to come and join in the fun of learning how to play polo. Horses and specialist equipment is provided for all visitors to the club, so it’s a great activity to make your visit to the Isle of Man a memorable adventure.
