Horseback riding

My 15 year old daughter would love to do some horse back riding while in London. She has been riding "English" for 8 years and would love the opportunity to ride in England. We will be taking some side trips outside of London so will have access to car later in our stay. Thanks your help.

Hyde Park is ideal for riding. There are two designated routes as well as a specialist arena. More at royalparks.gov.uk/parks/hyde_park/sport.cfm.

There are stables just to the north of Hyde Park in Bathurst Mews. For a full list of stables in Greater London please go to www.allinlondon.co.uk/directory/1382.php.

Further outside the capital there are stacks of places to ride. There are over 100 listed at www.yell.com.

With in easy reach of M11 and M25...

The stables in Bathurst Mews (mentioned above)certainly has a charm that you probably won't find in Pennsylvania. I stayed nearby last Spring and really enjoyed checking in on the horses in the evenings and walking down the quiet mews. One of those unique experiences only had in London.
