Older Riders Weekenders at Poplar Park

Older Riders first Weekender of 2020 will be in May at Poplar Park, in Suffolk.

Older Riders Weekenders are about FUN. We organise weekenders away with our horses 'We are Older than teenagers' and love fun weekenders in like-minded company.

In May we will have 14 horses and riders staying at Poplar Park for on our first weekender of 2020.

Poplar Park is Situated in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty in Suffolk.

Situated in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, Poplar Park is any equestrian enthusiast's dream location.

The unrivalled hacking is simply superb:  virtually unlimited off-road riding through forests, heathland, estate farmland, and beaches (tides permitting). Sadly this beach is not a touch on Holkham.

Poplar Park Equestrian Centre great facilities for riders of all levels.

Where to stay

Older Riders stay in their lorries, they stay in pop-up tents inside their trailers or if you like a little more home comforts, Poplar Park has a selection of B&B rooms in the house and a lodge that can be booked for the weekend too.

There is a photo of a pop-up tent in a trailer to give you an idea of how you can fit a sun lounger in a pop-up tent all inside an Ifor Williams trailer in the Older Riders Riding on the Beach article.
