What is Hacking?

Hacking is a way of exercising your horse out on bridleways. This is essential to avoid a horse getting burned out on flat or ring work. A hack can involve a planned route which also incorporates timed trotting and canters.

A great feature at Hovells Farm is the uninterrupted bridleways that can be used for hacking.

You and your horse can leave the farm and ride for miles upon miles without once having to cross a road.

This makes for an unbeatable riding experience among some of the best countryside Essex has to offer.
