Horse riding at Studland, Dorset

Annual and daily horse permits for beach riding from 1 October 2017 to 30 April 2018 will be available from 1 September.

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.
