Experience the freedom of riding using natural horsemanship techniques, encouraging communication and connection between horse and rider. All our horses are ridden bitless and barefoot—no metal in their mouths or on their hooves.
River Valley Stables specializes in “Rides for Riders” – from a half-day trek to a multi-day horse riding holiday, and our packages can be tailored to suit you.

River Valley Stables is currently closed for Winter. We will be reopening on the 1st November 2021 for the Summer season.
Before booking a ride we recommend you check your riding ability using our guide below:
Beginner – reasonably confident riding a horse at a walk, a rising trot, and learning to canter.
Intermediate – confident and in control on a moving horse at all paces outside an arena, but not riding regularly.
Strong intermediate – an intermediate rider who is currently riding regularly (outside an arena) and is comfortable in the saddle for at least six hours per day.
Advanced – a frequent rider who is very fit, has an independent seat and soft hands, and is confident on a forward-moving horse at all paces over rough and variable ground on open terrain.
