Horse & Pony Trekking
** Please be aware that our staff and horses will be taking a well-earned winter break at the beginning of 2022, and so we’ll be closed from Saturday, 1st January 2022 to Thursday, 10th February 2022, inclusive (returning to our regular treks and lessons on Friday, 11th February 2022). **
During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, although government restrictions have now lifted, we are continuing to ask our customers to wear a face covering whilst mounting and dismounting, to wear gloves whilst riding, and to make use of the hand-sanitising stations provided, for the comfort and safety of all our visitors and staff. Thank you.

Horse and pony trekking appropriate for all experience levels
The horse and pony trekking we offer here at Cannock Chase Trekking Centre is the heart of what we do. We just love to be able to share with our clients the amazing experience of spending time on horseback whilst appreciating the stunning scenery of Cannock Chase, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty here in Staffordshire. Whilst the magnificent views of Cannock Chase are a tonic for the soul in themselves, those views are further improved (if that could be possible) when seen through the ears of a faithful steed (we think so, at least!).
Lisa and the team at Cannock Chase Trekking Centre offer expert tuition delivered in a fun and relaxing way, enabling you to learn to horse ride or to improve your existing horse riding skills whilst enjoying serene saddle-top views of the wildlife as you trek on horseback through the breathtakingly beautiful forests and heathlands of Cannock Chase.
If you mostly ride in an arena, it’s a whole different experience to get out in the countryside and the wide open spaces, where you can truly appreciate what horsemanship is all about.
We have a selection of off-road trail rides to suit all abilities, whether you are an experienced rider or have never sat on a horse or pony before; please see below for more information on the horse and pony treks we offer. If you aren’t sure which trail ride is suitable for you, please refer to our FAQs as well as the information below.
Cannock Chase Trekking Centre has an extensive selection of horses and ponies, so we are able to find a suitable mount for riders of all ages (from age 7 upwards on our treks) and abilities.
Please refer to our full terms and conditions before booking.
Here at Cannock Chase Trekking Centre, we pride ourselves on providing an excellent experience for all our customers, whether complete beginners or experienced riders, and we strive constantly to make the customer experience a positive memorable event; our reviews and customer feedback are testimony to the ethos and values of the trekking centre.
