Horses Welcome Scheme


The Horses Welcome is the UK’s first quality assured accommodation for horses. It consists of a comprehensive set of recommendations for grazing, stabling and facilities.


Assisting Riders and those travelling with or by horse:

The Horses Welcome will assist riders in route and holiday selection, self guide rides are an important niche market in the UK today as a growing amount of people want to spend time in the company of their horses discovering the beautiful wide open spaces around us. Those travelling with their horses can feel safe in the knowledge that the overnight accommodation they have booking has been checked and is of an expected standard.


Promoting equine accommodation and rural communities:

The Horses Welcome will operate as a marketing tool for those providing overnight stays for horse and rider. They will be able to access support and advice from the scheme as well as benefit from group marketing through the Internet, equestrian publications, brochures and other organisations. The Horses Welcome quality mark logo can be used as an icon on maps, a sticker in a farmhouse window or wherever a sign of top class equine accommodation is required.
