About

Complete off road Horse riding, catering for all abilities from the age of 4 upwards. We pride ourselves in grouping the same abilities of riders together so that you can enjoy either a fast paced trek (experienced riders only) or a steady one for beginners. We also cater for mixed ability groups where friends, partners or family can enjoy a trek out together. We cater for Disabled and special needs customers and have a solid mounting block.

With so many different routes we enjoy picturesque woodland, fields, a nature reserve and Country Park where you can enjoy breath taking views across 4 counties making you feel like you are on top of the world. We experience lots of nature along the way including sightings of deer, buzzards, herons, woodpeckers and lots of wild birds.

Come and experience treks through some of the most beautiful Derbyshire Countryside including Poulter Country Park, Scarcliffe Park Woods, and the quaint village of Whaley.

Opening all year round and sometimes we even trek out in the snow.

Winners of the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence winners 5 years consecutively (now in The Hall of Fame). All Trek Leaders have been DBS checked and are first aid qualified.

If you wish to have guidance and tuition along the trek then we offer a one to one instruction service. Why ride around a menage when you can learn in a real horse riding environment?

We can also provide Tailored packages for the following:-

Day Rides (experienced riders only)

    Had a fab 3 hour hack in the forest today. Verity was a wonderful host and the horses were foot perfect. Verity made sure the pace was right for all. Thank you and see you again soon. Read full review
