Hacking, Trekking and Walkabouts




We ride in the most wonderful countryside and do very little road work. Safety is of utmost importance, and each ride is taken out at a pace to suit the least experienced rider. If you are new to us, we will ask to assess your ability in the school for safety reasons before going out. 2 and 3 hours rides are available, groups are small. Your first hack will be at walk and trot only.














A typical view from hacking and walkabouts within our own grounds





Ride through the woodlands around the parkland estate or venture off site to a network of bridleways and dense woodlands. 

The hacks can be 1/2hr, 1hr, 2hr or 3hours


Trekking, this is suitable for the novice rider (off the leading rein) the pace is slow and enables you to take in the countryside and completely lose yourself in the in the scenery.


You ride, we lead (usually on foot, suitable for young children who have had their fourth birthday, beginner, nervous and senior riders.)

These can be half hour and one hour rides
