Horse Riding

The Test Valley is also ideal for exploring on horseback. Approved riding stables in the area organise rides by the hour or longer and have mounts suitable for all level of ability. Call in at one of our Tourist Information Centres for further details.

Poetry in Motion

Capture the spirit and beauty of Test Valley in verse! Seek out this wonderful collection of poems hidden deep within the streets, parks and woodlands of Andover. The two linear trails which start from the Tourist Information Centre are sure to delight young and old alike with dedicated poems penned or suggested by local people. The poems, set in granite stone or cast bronze, are sprinkled through the town and take you past works of public art on the banks of the River Anton!
