Horse Riding Holidays
Oswestry Equestrian Centre forms an integral part of Carreg-y-big farm and is available for livery holidays, so why not bring yourself, your friends and your horses for a truly wonderful holiday break in the glorious picturesque Shropshire rolling hills. Our excellent facilities include indoor and outdoor schools, large indoor stables, year-round grazing in post and rail paddocks and fantastic hacking directly on our doorstep. A short cross country course is also available during dry weather conditions.
We can also organise an itinerary for your holiday, including accompanied hacking, Dressage, Show Jumping or Cross Country training.
At the end of your day you can relax, knowing your horse is well looked after and look forward to your evening. We will cook you an evening meal or BBQ served in your dining room or our our terraced patio where you can also enjoy our wonderful views and plan your next day’s activities.
