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.
