Horse and Pony Trekking
The Isle of Man has incredible countryside, rolling hills and beautifully rugged coastline. One of the best ways to see it is on horseback and a pony trek is a great day out for every member of the family during your holiday. Clearly marked paths and roads suitable for horses give you the best routes around and great sightseeing.
Many of the Island's stables are set in the countryside, giving you initial training in safe and friendly environments before you head out into the wild. Ballahimmin Riding and Trekking Centre is located at Cronk-y-Voddy in the Little London Hills and has well-schooled horses (or ponies for the smaller riders). These offer a great way to see areas of the Manx countryside which you could never get to by car.
Some clubs, such as Pennybridge Riding School, can offer a more technical environment. They offer indoor training, jumping practice and lessons for those of you who are new to riding, or for more experienced riders looking to improve their skills.
There are also special events to watch out for with clubs offering group themed Halloween rides and more depending on the time of year. Regardless of when you visit the Isle of Man, horse and pony trekking will give you a new appreciation for the Manx landscape.
