Beach Rides

Murthwaite Green specialises in beach rides. They are very popular, with customers returning time after time. We cater for all abilities and ages from 4 years upwards. We are always happy for able riders to have a good gallop on the beach and we can cater for mixed ability groups by sending out additional ride escorts so less able riders can still have a good canter.

To book a place on any of our rides, or for further information please contact us at murthwaitegreen@googlemail.com or telephone us on 01229 770876
