After the great successes of the last two years, we are delighted to offer our Horse Riding and Trekking courses again in 2017, in partnership with Stonetrail, a BHS “Highly Acclaimed” riding centre which specialises in open hacking and long distance trail riding holidays throughout Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales.
In small groups, riders will make the most of some of the best off-road riding routes in the UK and experience the thrill of beautiful bridleways and fell tracks accessed directly from the stable yard. This course is unique in offering riders the opportunity to improve their skills and confidence out in open countryside, areas in which Alison and her team excel.
Throughout the week the girls and boys will also have the opportunity to take part in lots of fun filled activities such as mounted games, jumping and horse care, making this a perfect choice for all horse mad children!
At the end of each busy day, the riders will return to Sedbergh where they will be cared for by our own pastoral staff.
Please note that children need to be able to walk, trot and canter in the arena as a minimum standard.
“I am thrilled that we are heading into our third year of courses, and all of us here at Stonetrail (on two and four legs!) are already planning some great new adventures for 2017. It has been fabulous to watch the young riders grow in skill and confidence, to see strong friendships develop within the groups, and to welcome so many back for their second or third visits.”
Stonetrail Riding Centre is managed by Alison Muir, a qualified Ride Leader with the British Horse Society with many years of experience organising and leading trail riding holidays, and she has been instrumental in the development and promotion of riding routes in Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales.
Stonetrail also offers 4 luxury self-catering holiday cottages, available to hire as a whole, or individually, for weekend, midweek or week long breaks. To find out more about Stonetrail please follow the link by clicking here stonetrailholidays.com
“Once again, my daughter has talked non-stop about the course and the friendships made. Despite the distances involved, the girls chat regularly on FaceTime about their shared experiences. Alison, her family and all her helpers have made this a magical trip for our daughter on what was her third time with you. She would happily relocate to Alison’s barn as her permanent residence!”
