Horse ride in Hyde Park with Hyde Park Stables, London's premier horse riding school.

Ride on Rotten Row

Rotten Row in London's Hyde Park, has been the most famous equestrian venue in England for 300 years.

We ride horses in Hyde Park and beside The Serpentine lake, in the most beautiful setting for horse riding in a capital city anywhere in the world.

Hyde Park was also used as a London 2012 Olympic venue.

Learn To Ride

We have dedicated team of staff who escort and teach on rides outside in the park and lessons in the arena.

We usually start riders who want to learn with lessons rides through Hyde Park as it’s easier to learn the basics in a more comfortable environment. Once you have mastered the basics and can ride independently through the park, we will move into the outdoor arena where you will be working towards more advanced movements.

At Hyde Park Stables we welcome visitors with no experience of horse riding to experience seeing part of London on horseback.

How Experienced Are You?

All rides are escorted by our instructors. All riders will start on the lead rein until the instructor has assessed your capability.

Novice riders can be kept safely on the lead rein whereas more experienced riders can have the opportunity to ride independently. It is important to honestly state your riding ability and experience so we can match you with your perfect horse and everyone can have a more enjoyable ride. Although we take all reasonable precautions for your safety, you must accept that riding is a risk sport.

Horse riding through Hyde Park is a wonderful experience, we hope you enjoy riding with us.
