Beach Rides

Murthwaite Green specialises in beach rides. We have been operating since 2002 and have built on our experience to develop a more bespoke experience.  Smaller groups of competent riders means that the experience is personalised to indidual requirements, and enables you to get the most out of your beach ride.

All  rides will be escorted by either Cath or Emma Wrigley, both are fully qualified BHS Ride Leaders and hold their Riding & Road Safety and First Aid qualifications. 

Our location, only 1 mile from Silecroft Beach, enables us to enjoy a short hack through the village before starting the beach ride.  This gives the horses chance to warm up and also gives customers the opportunity to get the feel of the horse before hitting the beach!  

Whilst we will cater mainly for competent adult riders, we are happy to take out experienced children over 11yrs and also beginner adult riders in separate groups.

2hr Beach Ride



Our 2 hour beach ride offers experienced riders plenty of time on the beach for exhilarating gallops and canters.  Gallop through the surf and enjoy the never-ending sands on Silecroft Beach


Please contact us to enquire if you are a novice rider wanting a beach ride.  Current restrictions mean I have very limited availability.


Full Day Beach Ride with picnic stop.

£170 - bring your own picnic

Ride along the beach to Haverigg taking in the views along the way whilst enjoying lots of gallops and paddles.. Stop for a picnic at the nature reserve, whilst your horse takes a rest. After lunch we ride around the old harbour wall and Hodbarrow nature reserve (enjoy an ice cream stop if weather allows!!) and end the day with lovely long gallops along the sands and through the surf back to Silecroft.
Suitable for experienced riders only.

Full Day Beach & Fell Ride

£170 - bring your own picnic

Set off along Silecroft beach to Gutterby, where we will leave the beach to join the lanes heading towards Black Combe. We then start our climb to almost 2000 feet, stopping along the way to admire the views. At the summit, the views are breathtaking. This ride lasts approximately six hours and will leave at around 10am, returning at around 4pm. Stop for a picnic whilst your horse takes a rest and enjoy the fabulous views.

Suitable for experienced riders only.


Private Beach Rides

One to one beach rides with either Cath or Emma are available on request.  If you are a little less confident, or would just like to have the experience to yourself then this is the ride for you.
