Welcome to Cannock Chase Trekking Centre

We are very pleased to announce that we will soon be reopening following the second lockdown in England caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We will be taking out treks from Wednesday 2nd December onwards (operating Wednesday to Sunday as usual). We will be opening our phone lines from Monday 30th November to take bookings (this will revert to our normal office hours the following week).

Payments for all existing bookings will be honoured when you call to reschedule.

We will continue to operate our treks under both the current government guidance/regulations and the general pandemic-related safety procedures in place at the trekking centre. Please note, Staffordshire has been placed in tier 3 following this second lockdown, and we will be operating under the government guidelines for this tier at this time.

Outstanding off-road horse-riding experience

Lisa and her expert team at Cannock Chase Trekking Centre offer you a truly unique horse-riding experience from a location nestled in the thousands of acres of stunningly beautiful forests and heathland of Cannock Chase, situated in the heart of Staffordshire.
Our friendly and professional team await your arrival, and welcome you to our contemporary, cedar-clad visitor centre and Ranch Bistro, complementing and resting easily within the idyllic landscape of the Chase.

Lisa and her team specialise in providing off-road horse and pony riding through the breathtakingly tranquil forests of Cannock Chase, enabling you to experience the ever-changing seasonal landscape on one of Lisa’s 46 trained horses.

Whether your equine dream is to gently trek through the Midlands’ designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or experience a faster-paced, exhilarating trek on trails throughout the ancient forests and heathlands of the Chase, the team, under Lisa’s expert guidance, will turn your dream horse-riding experience into an unforgettable, tangible reality.

Improve your horse-riding skills with group/private lessons

In addition to Cannock Chase Trekking Centre’s specialism in pony trekking, both group and private lessons are now offered in our purpose-built, covered arena. Whether you are a complete beginner looking to learn the basics, or a more experienced rider wishing to improve your dressage or jumping skills, we offer expert tuition to help take your riding to the next level.

Lisa Gregory’s childhood dream of owning an inclusive riding centre came to fruition in 1995, when Cannock Chase Trekking Centre first opened its doors to the public. We have steadily evolved our brand over decades and honed our expertise in the arena of delivering exceptional riding experiences for customers of all riding abilities.

Lisa’s 46 horses are trained using the values and techniques of natural horsemanship. The team provides exceptional experiences to over 20,000 customers annually, offering horse riding for all abilities and all walks of life, adopting an inclusive approach to horse riding, enabling all to enjoy the stunning horse trekking across the Chase.

Cannock Chase Trekking Centre is set in 43 acres of land with immediate access to the stunningly beautiful forests and heathlands of Cannock Chase; a designated Area of Outstanding National Beauty nestled in the heart of Staffordshire.

We look forward to welcoming you to Cannock Chase Trekking Centre, where you will meet not only a marvellous team of people dedicated to your enjoyment of horse riding but also – and perhaps most importantly of all – our wonderful, lovely horses.
