Sightseeing from the saddle
Whether you’re an experienced equestrian or you’re taking to the saddle for the first time, our excellent horse riding routes and activity providers mean that anyone can canter along our coast and through our countryside.
Northumberland provides excellent horse-riding for all abilities with miles of quiet country lanes, bridleways and open countryside.
Our beaches make for particularly spectacular riding experiences, you can gallop across miles of deserted sand and take in some of our fantastic coastal views and castles.
Heading inland, take an exhilarating upland hack in the stunning Northumberland National Park or the wild expanse of the North Pennines.
The North Pennines are a rider's haven with trails following old railway line routes, as well as country lanes and bridleways.
The Cheviot Hills are great for you and your horse, with acres of big skies, rugged moorland, tranquil old shepherd's trails and sheltered forest bridleways.
There is fantastic riding at Kielder Water and Forest Park where you can literally take your horse to water and explore 27 miles of shoreline on horseback.
If you want a meandering trek, try the Till Valley, Upper Coquetdale or Wild Redesdale.
