Additional Event Information

Combining two popular Staffordshire routes, this approx 9 mile option sets out through the picturesque village of Alton. After winding through country lanes and bridleways, the Dimmingsdale section takes us through woodland with much of this section riverside. Crossing over the river bridge, the route joins the Churnet Way, passing close by Alton Towers and the historic Alton station buildings. To conclude, the route heads across grassland where there are opportunities to canter, before linking back into Alton Village. Worth noting: The Churnet Way is multi-user and it is likely cyclists and walkers with dogs may be encountered. Bridleways crossing pastureland may contain livestock such as cows or sheep. There is some roadwork on this route on mainly quiet lanes. There is one short section of bridleway which has a slightly uneven and narrow descent. 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. A wooden bridge crossing may be included, and there is a bridge on the trail. There are small water splashes en route. Parking is 2 pounds per person, chargeable at the time of booking. Places are 40.50/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. Please email/phone for more info or to book use the link:
