Horse racing and riding

Endurance riding

Foxes Reach and Tintern Abbey Cottages are an ideal base for Endurance riders to train or just hack out and admire the fabulous scenery.

There are a number of Endurance rides and pleasure rides each year.( Offas Dyke Group of Endurance GB)

Stabling can often be arranged  for your own horse ( walking distance from Foxes Reach, approx 1. 5 miles from Tintern Abbey Cottage). This is our sport and we can advise on routes and sometimes find you a riding companion.
