Equine Activities and Facilities

Stabling is available for 3 horses with parking for trailers and horse boxes. We use  good quality local hay and our horses are bedded on straw pellets. Each stable is 12 x 12 with super deep stable mats.

Located on a bridleway with easy access to The Pennine Bridleway Way and The Mary Townley Loop. There are  lots of local off road hacks , we can accompany you on the hacks with our own horses or why not order a sumptuous packed lunch from us and we will give you a map of good local off road rides.

The Pennine Bridleway offers horse riders, cyclists and walkers the opportunity to explore the  Pennine ancient packhorse routes, drovers roads and newly created bridleways. Running from Derbyshire to Cumbria it has been especially designed for horse riders, the route was opened in stages with the full 205 mile (330 kilometres) opened by Martin Clunes in June 2012.

The trail includes 2 large loops, the first is the Mary Townley Loop in the south Pennines , that was the first section of the Trail to open back in 2002. This is 47 miles long and makes a great weekends walk or ride although some mountain bikers like to try to do it in a day!

Stoodley Hunting Lodge is ideally located on the edge of the Loop with horse washing facilities and secure storage for tack and trailers.

We can book the use of an indoor school  or a full size outside dressage arena, both with mirrors. These can be hacked to in approximately  15 minutes.
