The New Forest Riding and Watersports Centre at Applemore welcomes beginners, intermediate and experienced riders for lessons or for rides through the beautiful New Forest in a manner that will suit the ability of the individual rider. We are is at the very edge of the open New Forest and you can hack out directly into the woodland and onto the extensive heaths with no roadwork. There are very good, reliable, home-bred horses and ponies to suit all types of riders. You can go for one hour, two hours or for a longer pub-ride. In addition to forest riding, there are also watersport and lakeside activities, including camping, barbeques and swimming with the horses. Specialised training courses are provided for the more advanced riders who can work for Pony Club and BHS examinations at all levels. There are special spring and summer courses and full and part-time training for BHS Stage III and IV examinations. There are working and paying students. Other equestrian activities of the Centre include: horse trials, dressage, show jumping and cross country. Farmhouse style bed and breakfast accomodation is available. The Centre has appeared on television in Cilla Black's " Blind Date " and Meridian TV's " Coastal Ways ".
