Beach Ride

The minimum age is 12 years old for this ride.

WE ARE UNABLE TO TAKE BEGINNERS ON OUR group BEACH RIDES.

the group beach ride is not suitable for nervous riders.

The aristocratic Bankes family, who once owned Corfe Castle and Kingston Lacy near Wimborne, spent summers at their Studland residence, now the Pig on the Beach hotel.

They knew there’s nothing like fresh sea air for invigorating mind and body, and nowhere better than four miles of golden sand for letting your hair down and enjoying the outdoors.

On his death in 1981, Ralph Bankes bequeathed the Bankes estate, including Studland, Corfe Castle and Kingston Lacy, to the National Trust.

As our most popular ride, the beach ride has given so many riders an amazing experience for many years.  With 3 miles of sandy beach along Studland Bay, the beach ride is a spectacular ride with views of Old Harry Rocks, Bournemouth Beach and Sandbanks and Poole Bay.

The group beach ride is for intermediate > experienced riders who must be established and confident at all paces hacking out in open spaces, throughout the ride we will go for a few long stretches of trot and canter, and depending on the quality of sand we may go on for a short gallop.

Minimum Level Required:

“Established and confident in all paces. Able to maintain a light seat in canter without hindering your horse. Used to hacking in open spaces on forward going horses and ride regularly”
