Freedom doesn’t feel quite so free as it does from horseback. We have a long relationship in the South with horsemanship, you only need to witness our Common Riding events to see that horse riding is in our blood. If you want to learn how to ride or simply want some room to really feel the wind in your hair as you ratchet up speed, then come join us in the South. We’re horse mad.

Where to Visit?

There are stables and equestrian centres all over the South, but if you fancy a seaside trot, head out to Eyemouth. For spotting wildlife, Barstobrick is great – especially for Red Kites. If you fancy pretty scenery while you trek, head towards Peebles.
