Cumbrian Heavy Horses offer a horse riding or trail riding experience of a lifetime. All horse riding is on magnificent Clydesdales and Shires with an element of tuition incorporated in every ride.
This ride is run in several ways, either as a beginner/novice experience, a mixed abiltity group, or as a fast ride for experienced riders. The ride is through local farmland comprising of fields, tracks and stream crossings, all with the fantastic Whicham valley views. We ask on booking to ensure you do get the type of ride you want!
This ride is suitable for more experienced riders/groups who are able to walk, trot and canter in full control of their horse!. The ride takes you from our Chappells Farm Base, along the Whicham Valley, and on to the nearby Irish Sea Coastline which offers miles of sand and sea for you to enjoy.
Riders need to be comfortable with canter and controlling a horse in open spaces. We plan this ride around the daily tides so please ring in advance. We suggest bringing good clothing, packed lunch and light refreshments.
Full day and half day Fell Rides
