Have you dreamed of riding on the beach, across fields, or jumping over obstacles in woods? We make trips to Sandy Neck Beach on Cape Cod and to MA State Parks!

Cross country rides provide a welcome change of pace. They also help our horses wind down in the off-season and build up their endurance while their riders enjoy the New England seascape or fall foliage scenery.



Ride Details

Rides are for students of Boston Equestrian Center only, all riders must be confirmed by one of our senior trainers to participate, particularly as these rides do require a certain degree of riding skill and management of unpredictable situations.


Cross Country Hunter Paces

The schedule includes rides on the beach and dunes of Sandy Neck Beach (a 15 mile ride on Cape Cod), Bradley Palmer State Park (10-15 miles), Oxford (Green Briar Reservation), Hopkinton State Park, and hunter paces in Grafton (Grafton Land Trust), Groton (Nashoba Valley Hunt), and Hamilton (Myopia Hunt Club).

  •     Rides are offered during the Spring and Fall.
  •     All rides are open to boarders and those leasing horses.
  •     BEC provides transportation (including space for tack, saddle, etc.).
  •     Riders provide their own gear.
