Welcome to Stonetrail. For the past ten years we have organised riding holidays across some of the most beautiful parts of Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales, which are 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.

Autumn Trails 

Catch the beautiful colours of Autumn on our trails around Ravenstonedale UK 

3 half day rides & 3 nights £275 

Prolong your summer of riding and catch the beautiful colours of Autumn as we head out each morning on a 2-3 hour ride. Our ride choices include a village ride with an optional stop for morning coffee and a stunning bridlepath through the Howgill Fells. The riding is steady with some easy canters weather permitting. Our horses will be stabled at night so there is plenty of opportunity to get hands on and help care for your horse throughout your stay. In the afternoons you are welcome to join in with our horsey routines or choose to relax, visit the local area, take a dip in our spa room. Price is based on single occupancy in an ensuite room sharing one of our Farmhouses with your fellow riders. This is a self catering holiday with tea, coffee and milk provided.
