2017 Horse Riding Holidays with Stonetrail 

Welcome to Stonetrail. For the past 10 years we have been organising riding holidays across some of the most beautiful parts of Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales renowned for offering some of the best off road riding opportunities in the UK. Our aim is to provide a high quality riding experience where you can discover England at its best with breath taking panaramic views, remote & peaceful valleys and endless green spaces.

We have Confidence Boosting Trail Rides called the Lady Anne Trail Ride which is an ideal choice if you are planning your first trail ride, if you are returning to riding or if you have had a loss of confidence.  

All our other rides are ideal for Experienced Riders who are cantering with confidence in open spaces and have experience of multi-day trail rides.   

We have plenty of photos of the different routes we offer which you can view on our ROUTES GALLERY page.  You can also view clips of our horses in action and the wonderful scenery here on our Canter and Clips album and view photos of past trail rides here . Please bear in mind that all our canters are carefully managed to suit different abilities to ensure that everyone has a fun and safe experience.
