Experience the New Forest on Horseback

As you ride through our back gate you are immediately on the New Forest heathland. No roads to ride on, just miles of open countryside waiting to be explored.
Some of our most popular rides are featured below.
Please call us for details.


Whether you are visiting Arniss for the first time, or are a returning rider, our rides always have something new to offer. Let us show you our unique part of the New Forest National Park, with stunning views across three counties. Our experienced guides have a wealth of local knowledge of our beautiful area which is steeped with history including WW2 and film locations.

Catch The Light

The woodland inclosures that surround Hampton Ridge offer opportunity to spot the more timid wildlife of the forest. The filtered light through the magnificent trees such as the Douglas Fir, Beech, Oak and Silverbirch gives riders a unique experience with a special contrast from the open heathlands.

On The Breeze

Climbing to one of the highest points of the New Forest National Park affords spectacular views over the heathland, wetlands and inclosures. Your ride will take you down into the valleys through forest glades, crossing streams and brooks. With good opportunity to see the herds moving around enjoy the contrasts of some of the very finest riding country that Arniss has to offer.

Through the valleys

Experience the diversity of the New Forest National Park across the seasons. From spring bluebell glades, New Forest pony foals and the most incredible birdsong, through the heather and gorse clad heathland summer, to the autumn rutting season of the deer and dramatic mists and herd movements of the winter. Whenever you visit us there will be unique memories to take home with you.
