Trekking Centre Events

We offer a range of special events at the trekking centre, as well as being able to offer treks for corporate days, birthdays, and hen or stag parties. Most of our events involve horse riding in some way, but not all!

Please see our full terms and conditions before booking.

Christmas 3-Hour Trek

If you’re 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’re 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 festive lunch.

2024 date TBC

Experienced riders only

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’re 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 isn’t compulsory, and it’s a great way to see a little more of this area of outstanding natural beauty.

Ranch Party Night

Get your cowboy/cowgirl on at our popular ranch party night! After your free drink on arrival, enjoy our Western riding display, ranch-style cookout and drinks from the bar (not included), then dance into the night to a live band.

Saturday 3rd August 2024 7.30pm

Christmas Party

Get yourself in the festive spirit by joining us at CCTC for our Christmas party night. You’ll enjoy a festive buffet in the Ranch Bistro and a free drink on arrival (others can be purchased from the bar), but don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes to party the night away to a live band!

2024 date TBC

BBQ Rides

Once more, we’ll 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’re also giving the opportunity for less experienced riders to join us, as the first of these is a mixed-ability ride.

2024 dates TBC

Indian Summer Rides

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). Then enjoy riding back to the trekking centre at sunset to experience Cannock Chase as it descends into twilight.

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’re booking a horse to be exclusively yours for the duration and you’ll undertake the stable management, grooming and presentation of 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’s a 13st weight limit.

2023 TBC

Experienced riders only. Maximum weight limit is 13st
