Escape into Loose Reins Country on horseback. Western riding is a secure and relaxed way to take things slow. 

Wander through the woods or take in the views from the ridges. Discover your trail – discover yourself. Get a taste of freedom and adventure in the Dorset hills. Find kinship with one of our friendly quarter horses and roam the trails together. Beginners or experienced riders, it’s all about loosening those reins and losing yourselves in a whole world of calm.

Choose one of our fully trained American Quarter horses to suit your riding ability, from beginner to returning rider. We give private and group Western Riding and Horsemanship lessons and we have a horse to suit your ability.

The one-to-one attention and focus in our private lessons helps you to progress quickly and all riding lessons are tailored to an individual rider’s needs and experience. Our group lessons enable you to meet other horse lovers, progressing your skills together and having fun along the way.

We also offer tailor-made clinics for groups and will be inviting some guest clinicians to Loose Reins to enhance skills and confidence even further.

Safety is at the forefront of everything we do. One of our particular aims at Loose Reins is to help riders improve confidence levels.  Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to ride but have confidence issues.
