3. Horse riding on public beaches
Riding horses on our beaches is allowed, although not all beaches are suitable. A visit to the beach first is recommended.
We ask that he following points are noted:
- Whenever possible, horse riding should take place when the beach is not busy, ie at the start and end of the day, and avoiding weekends and bank holidays
- The beach area must be left in a clean and tidy condition with manure removed
- Please give way to other beach users, and remember that not all members of the public are familiar with horsemanship. Be aware of pedestrians, small children and dogs.
- Avoid areas in which there is a lot of kite surfing since large kites can very easily spook a horse
- Act sensibly and with consideration for other beach users. Please do not jump over the beach Groynes when you do not have a clear visibility of what or who is on the other side, also be aware that some pools of water on the beach may be much deeper than they first appear.
- Please make sure you check the tide times before visiting.
- Horse boxes and other vehicles are not allowed on the beach at any time so please check out the parking availability before visiting.
