To soak up the beautiful Yorkshire coast on horseback, head to Farsyde Farm Cottages in Robin Hood’s Bay, where you’ll be taken out in small groups with the B&B owners. While beginners take a gentle walk along the former Scarborough to Whitby rail path, experienced riders can explore the beach, which makes this one of the coolest horse riding experiences in the region.

Kilnsey Trekking and Riding Centre

Set in Wharfedale Valley, the family-run Kilnsey Trekking and Riding Centre offers five different routes for an unforgettable horse riding day out. If you’re a beginner, you can choose from three different treks and the least experienced rider will set the pace in groups of up to 6 people. Will it be a gentle meander along the River Wharfe or a trek through the North Yorkshire Dales? If you can hold your position in canter, go for their advanced rides, which last up to 90 minutes and will see you explore either Kilnsey Crag or the grykes above Conistone village.
