Themed Movie Night

There are enough horse movies out there that you can pick at least one or two that you’ll both love for a relaxed, romantic night in. From National Velvet to Seabiscuit, War Horse to Black Beauty (any of the four versions will do), there’s plenty of material! Pop some popcorn, grab a cozy blanket, and snuggle up on the couch for an evening of equestrian-themed cinema.

Dinner and a Ride

Probably not in that order! Pick a trail neither of you have been on before, preferably somewhere with beautiful scenery, and go for a nice long ride together (here’s a handy guide you can use to find a place). Get the blood pumping and take in some gorgeous views, and then go grab a drink and a bite somewhere you both love. There’s nothing better than an active date and a good meal to follow.
