Trekking Centre Events

We offer our own range of special events at the trekking centre, as well as being able to offer riding lessons and treks for corporate days, birthdays, and hen or stag parties.

Please see our full terms and conditions before booking.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, for the foreseeable future, any events are still to be confirmed (tbc), and will be subject to the government guidance/regulations at that time. Any such event will only go ahead if it can be operated under the general safety procedures in place at the trekking centre at that time. Please see our Facebook page for the latest information.

Game of Thrones 3-Hour Trek

Our 3-hour themed treks are a great way for our more experienced riders to get a little more time in the saddle. Whether you are a fan of the show or not, this will be a fun-packed morning ride. Why not get further into the spirit of things by dressing up as one of your favourite characters (horse-friendly costumes only please)? But don’t worry, being a fan of the show is not compulsory, and it’s a great way to see a little more of this area of outstanding natural beauty.

Christmas 3-Hour Trek

If you are an experienced rider, why not join us for our ever-popular Christmas trek? Ride out for a full 3 hours through the glorious scenery of Cannock Chase, and get the chance to visit parts of the Chase that you don’t normally get to see on one of our regular treks. To add even more fun to the trek, you are welcome to come along in a horse-friendly costume or even just a decorated hat (both are optional)! Once back at the Ranch Bistro, warm yourself up with a sumptuous included lunch.

Lichfield Sheriff’s Ride

This historic and prestigious 25-mile ride through the city of Lichfield is an unforgettable day for experienced riders only. You are booking a horse to be exclusively yours for the duration and will undertake stable management, grooming and presenting your horse. Riders need to be in show dress for one of the last ‘beating the bounds’ rides in the country. This is a long day so we have to be selective regarding who can join us on this event, and there is a 13st weight limit.

BBQ Rides

Once more, we will be offering our summer treks followed by a ranch-style BBQ back at the trekking centre. Take the chance to experience the beauty of Cannock Chase and build up your appetite for a culinary feast of a BBQ on your return.

If you (or perhaps your partner or friend) would simply like to join us for the BBQ, tickets for the BBQ only are also available.

Unlike many of our special events, we are also giving the opportunity for less experienced riders to join us, as the first of these is a mixed-ability ride.

Back by popular demand for this summer are our evening Indian rides for experienced riders. You’ll ride out over the Chase to a local Indian restaurant, where you will savour al fresco Indian tapas and a drink (included).
