Off-road horse riding

One of the joys of horse riding is exploring acres of countryside, roaming through woodland and cantering across open grassland.

At our Farnley Estates off-road horse rides, you’ll discover all of this and more. Set in some of Yorkshire’s most stunning countryside, the 7-mile off-road horse riding course, which starts from Field Lane is designed to suit all abilities, from absolute beginner to the more advanced horse rider.

As the majority of the ride is off-road, it's ideal for younger riders who need to be led by an adult.

Fun and challenging optional jumps

For the more adventurous, our off-road horse riding course offers optional jumps, which vary in size from small logs to bold cross country riding fences.

In 2015, we invested in new horse ride jumps, which our more adventurous riders loved. In 2016, we've even more new jumps for riders to enjoy.

Our off-road horse riding experience is also one of the few horse ride courses in the Yorkshire region that is almost entirely off-road. All you need is your horse, suitable safety equipment and a sense of adventure!
