Go horseriding in the Lake District

Lake District, Cumbria

Saddle up for a two-day horseriding trek around the fells of the Lake District.

If the sight of the Lake District’s wild fell ponies has you hankering for a ride of your own, head to Hipshow farm where Rosco the donkey will be on-hoof ready to greet you at the stables. After matching you to your ideal four legged companion, it’s time to hit the open countryside with owner, Anna, and your fellow riders. With miles of fell land to play with, and two days to fill, there’s no need to plod.

After canters and gallops it’s time to dismount for lunch at a farmhouse or picnic spot along the route. Finish off with a glass of wine and a hot bath, before doing it all again the next day.
