As above.
Anyone know where I can ride on a beach Lincolnshire or Norfolk coast.
Not got own horse anymore so would have to be a riding school or similar.

Don't know about riding schools but we take our own horses to Holkham Beach in Norfolk - nr Hunstanton and it's really well organised with a special place to park lorries and it is flat and great..

Holkham Beach is wonderful - I have some lovely pictures from some years ago of DS riding his pony in the sea. As it was some distance from our house, we stayed in a B&B that had stabling. Happy memories Smile

Thanks Greensand. That might work as we want to combine it with a night or two away and I have wanted to visit Whitby for ages!

I've ridden at Saltburn and it's pretty good, though the tide can really affect how wide a beach you have to ride on.

I've also ridden on a beach in Cumbria with these people. Well organised, very quiet beach.

Have booked to ride at Saltburn. Really excited but a bit nervous too. It's 2 years since I last rode so am going to a local place to ride a couple of times beforehand. My friend hasn't ridden for 15 years so she's having a couple of lessons beforehand too.

Well we went for our beach ride last weekend. We had a fabulous ride. It was just how we wanted it to be. The riding school were so professional but friendle too. Once we got down to the beach we rode about 2 miles at a mix of canter and trot and then back again. The sun came out, the sky was blue, the tide was out. It was just perfect and i would recommend it to anyone. There were a lot of beginners, but they were on lead rein and when we reached the beach their group went the other way to do walk and trot. Really well run place.

That sounds brilliant! I might look at that myself!
