Horse-friendly holidays

Stabling and turnout is available year round, but turnout only is available from April to October

There are 9.5 acres of grazing land at the Farm, split between two large fields and six paddocks, so that you can be assured that your horse can have its own paddock, or just share with its friends.

The Old Stables Cottage does not have its own stable block, stabling is on the other side of the farmyard at Merlin Cottage. There are four 12′ x 12’ stables. The stables have rubber matting and if horses are stabled, wood pellet beds are provided. Hay is provided which is sourced locally. There is a 20m x 40m all-weather floodlit arena with a surface of sand and rubber chippings. The arena has been marked out for dressage tests and there are also a number of jumps, which can be used either in the arena or in one of the paddocks in the summer.

Riding horses at Sir Johns Hill Farm

The riding around Laugharne is enjoyable, but not taxing. There are some pleasant off-road rides where you can have a good long canter, and there are also plenty of quiet country lanes with spectacular views to hack around, there is a quarter of a mile ride on the main road before reaching the quieter rides. In addition there is the 7 mile stretch of Pendine beach along which to enjoy a very brisk gallop and paddle in the sea. It takes approximately 15 minutes to box down to the beach.

Guests are requested to bring their own hard feed, but hay and wood pellet bedding is provided for stabled horses and hay can also be purchased for horses on grazing livery.

Riding lessons can be arranged with a local BHS registered riding instructor.
