Welcome to Cannock Chase Trekking Centre

Outstanding off-road horse-riding experience

Lisa and her expert team at Cannock Chase Trekking Centre offer you a truly distinctive horse-riding experience from its location nestled in the thousands of acres of stunningly beautiful and tranquil forests and heathlands of Cannock Chase in the heart of Staffordshire. This trekking centre specialises in providing off-road horse/pony trekking that will enable you to experience the ever-changing seasonal landscape from the unique viewpoint you can only get on horseback.

The friendly and professional team at Cannock Chase Trekking Centre await your arrival, and are ready to welcome you to the contemporary, cedar-clad visitor centre and Ranch Bistro, which complements and rests easily within the idyllic landscape of the Chase.

With the extensive complement of 46 well-trained horses owned by Lisa (which are definitely not your average trekking centre horses!), the knowledgeable staff are sure to be able to find the perfect horse or pony for you to enjoy your trail ride, whether you’ve never even sat on a horse before and need a steady-and-safe pair of hands (or should that be hooves?) to look after you, or you’re an experienced horse rider looking for a more forward horse/pony that will help you to develop your horse-riding skills even further.

Whether your equine dream is to trek gently on horseback through the Midlands’ designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or experience a faster-paced, more challenging trail ride on paths 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.

Lisa’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 the decades and honed our expertise in the arena of delivering exceptional riding experiences for customers of all riding abilities.

Our 46 horses are trained using the values and techniques of natural horsemanship.

Our team provides outstanding experiences to customers, offering horse riding for people of all abilities and from all walks of life, adopting an inclusive approach to horse riding and enabling all to enjoy our fantastic horse/pony trekking across the Chase.

Cannock Chase Trekking Centre is set in 43 acres of land with immediate access to the breathtaking natural environment of Cannock Chase; a designated Area of Outstanding National Beauty nestled in the heart of Staffordshire.

My team and I look forward to welcoming you to Cannock Chase Trekking Centre, where you’ll 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.
