Welcome to Off The Beaten Track Rides, this is a unique place to bring your horse on holiday where the emphasis is fun - just fun and more fun. We don’t do boring - life is too short. Whether you are experienced or less-confident, with a sensible steed or a young green horse, there are bridleways, forest tracks and river crossings for you to explore, enjoy and return to base with the biggest grin ever.
We love sharing ‘firsts’ with our guests - first time you took your horse in water, first time your horse was in the lead, first time you cantered through a field with sheep in - we can do lots of firsts without you necessarily realising it happened.
We offer peace and tranquility in this remote corner of Cumbria which time forgot. A special place where you can spend time with your best friend without watching the clock - there are no ‘have-tos’ here - just you and your horse, from dawn till dusk. You can watch your horse grazing from your bedroom window, go out before bedtime to say good night in your boots and pyjamas, or sunbathe in their field if you wish!
The count down begins from the moment you send your booking form in - the preparation and planning is all part of the excitement, including loading, travelling and finally, arriving. From the moment you arrive we aim to make this the holiday you will remember - the riding, the food, the hospitality, the hot tub, making new friends and meeting other guests, leaving refreshed, relaxed and wishing you could stay another night - it has been known!
We are BHS approved and 2017 will be our 8th year. We are looking forward to many returning guests as well as meeting so many new faces too.
