Naturally we want to take all members of the family on holiday and it's quite common for people to take their dogs and other pets with them. After all that is the advantage of self-catering accommodation - it can be your home away from home.
So why not take your horse or pony with you? Enjoy trekking through the Peak District, Dartmoor National Park, Wensleydale or the Denbighshire countryside. Try a floodlit ménage and water jump in Essex, or perhaps the challenge of cross country courses in Cornwall and Somerset.
