Kilnsey Trekking and Riding Centre

Kilnsey Trekking and Riding Centre are able to offer riding for all abilities of rider, from those who have not been on a horse before to the more experienced rider!

All rides take in the incomparable scenery and local landmarks of the Dales, from our own Kilnsey Crag, right on our doorstep, and viewed from every ride, to seeing the limestone pavement, indigenous to our area, and Mossdale Caverns, with its eerie story of the cavers who lost their lives.

The longer, more adventurous rides, take in historical landmarks such as Malham Cove, Malham Tarn and Mastiles Lane.

All rides are accompanied by an experienced guide who will talk about the history, the geology and the biology of the area, as well as assisting you to enjoy your horse.

The shortest ride - suitable for children or adults who have no experience is approximately 35mins long, with times and distances increasing, culminating in a 2 day ride, where they can ride to Coniston Hotel, and then come back the next day to ride home again taking a different route. (Other day ride routes are available.)

So, there really is something for everyone.

They do have an upper weight limit of 14 stones, and anyone around this weight will be advised on the most suitable ride for their ability, so as to be fair to the horse.
