Out and about
As well as enjoying hacks in and around the areas where our horses are kept, great days out are to be had when exploring new areas. The National Trust’s Blickling Estate near Aylsham is a wonderful area to explore, with clearly marked sand and grass tracks and paths.
For an organised hack, Sandringham Estate hosts a charity pleasure ride twice a year, in May and October where 5, 8 or 10 mile hacks are ridden through Her Majesty’s lovely woodland. Full details are available at Horses dates or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another great favourite is a beach ride on the beautiful sands of Holkham where riders can paddle, splash and gallop undisturbed for miles along the Norfolk coast.
Spring is a great time to get out and about and enjoy equestrian sports, and who knows, you may even discover a love of horses just like Anna Sewell and maybe even take up a new hobby.
