The Bedford Rides network extends southwards from the area around the border between Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire. It is a great starter network for first-timers 'Taking Your Horse on Holiday' because the terrain is gentle - but the predominantly grassy field margins are great if you like fast riding!
This area has a very traditional, middle-England feel about it with rolling countryside and big fields and skies. It is predominantly an arable area, so you can enjoy long canters on wide verges. There are not many gates because there's hardly any livestock in the area.
We offer a one-centre holiday with a choice of 'petal' rides, and there are some 'place-to-place' options.
The easy terrain makes it good for mountain biking.
A 19 mile ride which takes you north east to Covington where you then follow the Three Shires Way through the villages of Spaldwick and Easton to Grafham Water - a site of special scientific interest.
You ride around its western edge, with lovely lakeside views and mature woodland, before returning to Upper Dean via Stoneley and Pertenhall. The ride is quite fast, with gentle countryside and plenty of opportunities to canter.
