We're off on a horsey hen do with an afternoon of Derby Horse Riding Gymkhana. Think fresh air, lush green countryside, beautiful horses, and brilliant instructors who will get everyone involved in old school gymkhana games. Have a right giggle with classics like potato racing, and then head off on a hack down the bridle path.
Novices and experienced riders will have a fantastic time with a horse riding gymkhana and trek. Any newbies in the group can get up to speed on the basics with a quick lesson before the games begin. Great fun for all abilities, this is the perfect day out for a hen who loves horses.
On arrival at the stables, say hi to your instructors and get kitted out with horse riding hats. Then, it's off to meet the horses! Each rider is paired with a horse appropriate for her size and experience. The introductory lesson will get everyone on her horse and riding. When the whole group is on horseback and comfortable, it's time to get stuck into some gymkhana games! You could play simple games like walk, trot and canter, get competitive with a bending race, and even do a few small jumps if you're feeling confident.
After the games, you'll go on a short horse riding trek and take in the gorgeous Derbyshire countryside. A great choice for groups of all abilities, a horsey hen do in Derby is something a bit different that will definitely be remembered!
