Additional Event Information

A leisurely approximately 6.5 mile meander through the forest, this route sets out along the Churnet Way before taking to forest tracks and bridleways. On the outbound leg the route winds gradually uphill eventually affording a lovely view down the valley. The return is along the riverside with the relaxing sound of running water from the wayside waterfalls and brooks. Tracks are finished at times with a hardcore dressing but with some softer sections of going there are canter opportunities if all riders are happy to do so. There is an excellent cafe, complete with a hitching rail for the horses conveniently placed near to the end of the ride. Worth noting: Parking is only suitable for trailers and small horseboxes due to a weak bridge on the access road. The Churnet Way is a multi-user trail so it is likely walkers with dogs and cyclists will be encountered. Occasionally Alpaca walks can be met on the forest trails. Some sections of the route are reasonably narrow and can have a drop off to the side into the river. There are some wooden bridges to cross and small water splashes en route. There is a very short section of road on a small country lane. Places are 35/horse and rider combination. All riders must have adequate Public Liability Insurance to cover themselves and their horses. Under 18s are welcome but must be accompanied on the ride by an adult.
