Burley Villa – Horse Riding Lessons and Forest Rides in the New Forest National Park 

We offer English or Western saddle Horse Riding Lessons for all standards in our Indoor or Outdoor Arenas throughout the year.

Please click on any image below for current offers and courses


Whether a beginner or a seasoned rider, young or old, we can take you Horse Riding over the ancient lands of the New Forest.

We offer horse riding amongst the wild ponies on the forest greens and into the woodlands and forest tracks where you may be lucky and spot wild deer or the other animals and birds that thrive in the wonderful New Forest National Park. This really is the best way to enjoy the tranquility, wildlife and beauty of the New Forest

We welcome beginners on gentle, walk and jog Forest Trails in western saddle. More experienced riders can ride into the National Park on midweek  Private Hacks.

Children can join us on Beginner Lead Rein or Steerer’s groups, gaining experience before moving onto our Pony Club. Or, for a one off taster experience, there is the ‘Kidz Brush n Ride’ getting ‘hands on’ brushing and tacking up your pony before your ride or, during the summer months,  a Pony Trail around our fields and woods.

If you need more information or help please email or call us, we’ll be happy to help
