Additional Event Information

This approximately 12 mile, hilly route takes in three Peak District gems. Passing through Thorpe village, the route heads across country on a charming lane where an uphill canter can be enjoyed. Taking to small country lanes to wind through Blore Pastures there are expansive views of Thorpe Cloud. The route continues through Ilam village centre and up onto Ilam moor, giving the horses a good fitness building climb! A gradual descent is made into Milldale before crossing the border from Staffordshire back into Derbyshire to conclude the route along the Tissington Trail. View the route demo video here: https://youtu.be/8dmGsAlp62I Worth Noting: Parking is pay and display on a first come first served basis. Maximum charges of �7 for all day. The route is approximately 50/50 on and off road riding. The key points of the ride are popular tourist destinations, so there may be a reasonable amount of traffic on the connecting lanes. Livestock may be encountered both on and alongside the route. The route has some long hills, both up and down so both horse and rider will require a reasonable level of fitness. One short section has reduced width and some rocky going on a downhill lane. The Tissington Trail is multi-user and as such walkers with dogs/buggies, cyclists and off road wheelchairs may be encountered. The trail section includes a bridge crossing at elevation, but with high sides. Group sizes are limited to 6+ guide. All riders must have their own Public Liability Insurance to cover themselves and their horses. Under 18s are welcome but must be accompanied on the ride by an adult rider.
