Horse riding in Wiltshire

The newest government guidance means there are lots more activities we can now all take part in. Many activity centres and things to do – especially those taking place outside in the open air – are now able to reopen and to welcome visitors back. From golf courses to equestrian stables, and from cookery schools to vintage car rides, there are lots of fun activities to once again enjoy here in Wiltshire this June and July.

Activity providers in Wiltshire have been working hard to put robust social distancing measures in place to ensure you can have a fun and safe visit. Many processes have changed, so please check in directly with the attraction you are visiting before you travel to ensure you know what to expect. You may also need to book a time slot in advance.
