Welcome to Stonetrail. We are a unique riding centre offering tailor made riding holidays, expeditions and horse riding courses for private groups, schools and organisations. For the past 10 years, Stonetrail has carefully led thousands of riders across some of the most remote and beautiful parts of Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales to help make their horse riding adventures come true.
We offer a range of riding adventures including Centre Based Residential Riding Holidays, Multi-day Trail Rides with different overnight stops, and tailor made horse riding courses & events. Horse riding at Stonetrail offers riders the opportunity to experience what we refer to as “real riding” out on the fells with a sense of fun, challenge and adventure. We are very fortunate to have some of the best off road riding routes in the UK leading straight from our gate and we are renowned for making the most of our unique landscape.
Stonetrail is owned and managed by Alison Sixsmith and her partner Colin and a fabulous team of staff and volunteers who work tirelessley to bring a sense of fun and adventure to everthing we do. All the horses used by Stonetrail are owned by Alison and used exclusively for hacking and trail riding. They have become wonderful companions and friends and we cherish all of them. They receive the best standard of care and enjoy acres of grazing when they are not being ridden, living happily as a herd, in as natural conditions as possible. Some of our horses have been home bred and others have been bought as youngsters and brought on by us.
Our Junior Riding Club and Sedbergh School Horse Riding Courses offer riders aged 10 and over weekly riding and horse care sessions and horse riding courses during the school holidays.
