Low to moderate horse riding trails for guests. Day trails offered but one can also enjoy a weekend of riding and book into accommodation options provided.
While there are day itineraries available for horse-riding visitors to the Meander, the best way to experience the Meander is to embrace the slower pace of its environment and take a long weekend to enjoy the experience. Some Midlands Meander members offer unique riding opportunities to guests staying at their accommodation – a wonderful opportunity to enjoy top class hospitality and cuisine.
