2019 Horse Riding Holidays 

Exclusive Trail Riding Holidays in Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales National Park

Welcome to Stonetrail. For the past twelve years we have been offering adult only riding holidays across some of the most beautiful parts of Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales. Our location is a horse riders dream. We have stunning scenery, an extensive bridleway network and because the area is still relatively unknown, we can often ride all day and hardly see a soul. Peace and quiet, and a place to relax is hard to find in today’s world but that’s exactly what you will find you will find here at Stonetrail.  

Stonetrail is owned and run by Alison Muir who established the business in 2008. Our aim has always been to offer a quality riding experience with a high standard of individual attention, to encourage rider confidence and to ensure first-class horse care for our team of wonderful horses. Together with a long-standing team of staff and helpers we work hard to keep these aims at the fore front of everything we do. Stonetrail is a BHS approved centre and Alison is a qualified Ride Leader with many years of experience organising and leading trail riding holidays. In 2012, Alison was honoured to be chosen to accompany Martin Clunes in his role as President of the British Horse Society to open The Pennine Bridleway, England’s latest national trail, a 130-mile-long distance bridleway purpose made for horse and riders.  

2018antony.jpgWe have a super team of well bred horses which are forward going, well-mannered and easy to ride. They are super friendly and full of character, we love the fact that many of our customers return year after year to team up again with their favourite horse.  

At the end of each day you can look forward to a restful night in one of our cottages which overlook the stables and paddocks. Recently converted from a range of stone barns they offer a wonderful blend of rustic charm with contemporary interiors, wood burning stoves, power showers, and crisp white linen. There is even a spa room to help relive any sore muscles! In the evenings you can choose to stay in and cook for yourself or eat out, we have a lovely Inn within walking distance and a several more a short drive away.
