UNICORN TRAILS WESTERN RIDING HOLIDAYS

Western riding is a style of horseback riding which evolved from the ranching and warfare traditions brought to the Americas by the Spanish Conquistadors, and both equipment and riding style evolved to meet the working needs of the cowboy in the American West. 

The style is relaxed, easy to learn and no previous experience is necessary. Sometimes beginner riders can feel a bit more at ease and secure in the western saddle, and some more experienced riders prefer it.

Western style riding is the norm on ranch holidays and we also have an increasing number of riding holidays where a western saddles and western style riding are utilised.
