Welcome to Salisbury Plain Safaris: Horseback
Salisbury Plain has some of the best out riding in the country so Join us and let us show you the sights and sounds of Wiltshire.
The Horseback experience is run in partnership with a local charity God Unlimited Outdoor Therapy to read their story click HERE
We aim our tours at experienced riders as we believe this gives everyone the best experience. Experienced riders must be able to walk trot and canter unaided and have ridden in the last 12 months, all riders must be under 12 stone.
We are able to provide tours for beginners or those who have not ridden in a while but we charge a premium for these as we add extra staff to ensure your safety. Contact the office for more information.
Currently our tours operate on alternate Saturdays. The experience starts at 09:30 with a saftey brief and a grooming session to get to know your horse before heading to our outdoor arena for a warm up lesson with one of our instructors. then its a cup of tea and a biscuit before heading off for your adventure. A typical safari lasts 2 hours and is over open country and trails so can be quite fast. we think its amazing.
What to wear on your tour:
ideally riding kit, so Jodphurs, Riding boots, gloves, a comfortable top and waterproof outers. You can substitute this with leggings/tracksuit bottoms, wellies or boots with a heel. In winter months we reccommend a scarf and something to cover your ears such as a Buff. We supply riding hats and do not permit riders to bring their own for insurance reasons.
