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  was  our own sport and we can advise on routes and sometimes find you a riding companion.

Learn to ride or to improve

  • There is a good riding school (Severnvale)  at Chepstow
  • The David Broome centre  which has show jumping, dressage and other competitions, is very local
  • Pony trekking is brilliant from LLanthony area (mountain scenery)
