Ride the old packhorse trails and see the stunning Peak District countryside in comfort!
For the past 40 years we have specialised in hacking and trekking out in the surrounding countryside, catering for all abilities from the first time rider to experienced competition riders. As we have a large variety of horses both in size and type there is usually one to suit your experience.
We are happy to take younger children but do have a minimum age of 8yrs old, although please call us if your child has lessons and is a little younger. For the comfort of our horses we do have a weight limit of 17st (riding weight).
Both individuals and groups are welcome on our hourly, daily and weekend trail rides, the shorter rides are suitable for all abilities whilst the longer rides over 2hrs are for competent riders only.
The 2hr ride which is the most popular, is suitable for all levels and follows the old pack horse trails to Three Shires Head (Staffordshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire) a stunningly pretty spot hidden in the hills of the Staffordshire Moorlands. Many of our groups are of mixed ability so this ride is ideal as the more experienced riders can split off on an extra loop and have a good canter before rejoining their friends who have taken a slightly shorter route.
Hats to current BSI standards are provided. All riders must wear hats of an appropriate standard.
Suitable footwear should be worn -i.e. shoes or boots with a smooth sole and small heel, we do have toe cages on all the stirrups so trainers are acceptable as long as they are tied correctly and support your foot. Hiking boots or large wide soled boots sre not suitable. We have a small selection of boots for loan.
