Horse riding at Studland Beach, Dorset

Day permits for beach riding are now available – see below. Please note all 2014-15 annual permits have now been allocated. Studland Stables can also arrange beach rides, as well as other routes in the surrounding countryside. Riders are asked to respect other beach users and the environment – stick to the tide line, no galloping and no riding in the dunes, please. There's also a network of bridleways across the heathland and chalk ridge, which you can enjoy all year round without a permit. Parking for horse boxes is in the left-hand pay and display car park at Knoll Beach, free for our members.
