 This was an amazing experience. I was a solo traveller and booked this in advance- so happy I made sure to put this on my schedule! I had a private lesson/ride throughout the park. With the city traffic on one side and a royal park on the other, this was truly a unique experience! I high recommend this…. just be sure to call the stables once you’ve booked it to set up a time. Rides actually start at 9am.

 Great fun! Riding through the park on a crisp London morning watching the squirrels scurry about.
