Meet the horses of Stonetrail Riding Centre

Please find below photographs of our horses in action, with a brief description. We have chosen to use good quality cob type horses because they are sure-footed and very suited to long-distance riding. They are also fun to ride, sensible and full of character. We take great care of our horses making sure they have a well-balanced workload with plenty of time-out to graze and live naturally as a herd in our 40 acres of hill pasture.
