Equestrian

Explore the county of Nottinghamshire on horseback

As well as exploring quiet lanes, horse riders can also make use of Nottinghamshire’s network of designated routes. There are a few rules though; you must stick to the marked bridleways and byways as it's illegal to ride on a footpath. Bridleways are often marked with blue arrows and byways with red arrows. They're clearly marked on Ordnance Survey Landranger and Explorer maps. For more information on where you can ride a horse visit the Nottinghamshire County Council website.

Head to Coloured Cob Equestrian Centre, nestles in the small village of Creswell just off J30 of the M1, to enjoy all the benefits this equestrian centre has to offer. Set within 35 acres of land, this purpose-built school offers a wide range of lessons, hacking trekking for beginners to advanced riders, mini cross country course, and more. Horses are matched to your height, weight and ability.

Country Parks

Nottinghamshire is bursting with country parks which offer great trails for horse riders, including Clumber Park and riding permits can be obtained from the National Trust.

Sherwood Pines and Blidworth Woods also boast beautiful woodland paths. Visit the websites to find out more about obtaining a Discovery Pass which will give you access to the trails.

Bestwood Country Park has bridleways marked with signs stating ‘TRAIL’, which are also open to walkers and cyclists.  If you’re bringing a horse box, please contact the rangers who will be able to advise you where to park.
