Winter Rides in Westonbirt Arboretum

Would you enjoy a hack through Westonbirt Arboretum and the surrounding countryside?

Join OKL Equestrian at the Beaufort Polo Club for a glorious autumn ride, when the arboretum is arguably at its best. We welcome novice to advanced riders, and each experience is totally bespoke. There are no age limitations.

Hacks usually last one hour, although longer can be arranged, and whilst we would prefer a few days notice, bookings can be made twenty four hours in advance.   

The Arboretum Experience is £100 per hour for an individual, two or more riders £75 per hour.  Contact us to book now.

No matter how inexperienced a rider you are, the good news is that polo ponies are arguably the most placid and well mannered sports horses. At OKL Polo & Equestrian our ponies are highly trained and carefully selected for their temperament. You are on safe hooves at OKL.

Polo riding is similar to Western riding, in that the ponies are easily controlled with only one hand on the reins, so if you don’t feel ready to tackle stick and ball, but just want a country hack with a difference, we can offer you a safe and pleasurable riding experience.

Regardless if you are a first time visitor, staying locally at one of the beautiful Cotswold hotels or a dedicated local, our coaches will take you on a journey through some of the most glorious countryside. OKL is situated next door to the internationally renowned Westonbirt Estate, set in 600 acres and home to over 18,000 trees and shrubs.

The Cotswolds is a beautiful place to be, and whether you are here for the weekend or living locally, there is nothing like a breathtaking ride in Westonbirt Estate, a remarkable place. What better way to experience it, but from the back of a well behaved and comfortable polo pony.
