Booked a private party full day pub ride and wasn't disappointed! Beautiful Cannock Chase, great weather, fab horses, good company and lunch in lovely pub. Could not have asked for a more perfect day - except for it to go on longer! Lisa and her team are fantastic. A must visit for horse riders ,had best day ever.

My husband bought me a gift voucher for a 2 hour trek with Cannock Chase Trekking Centre for my birthday. I love horses and rode regularly through my teens and then on and off in my early twenties, but haven't ridden at all in the last 8 years or so. I booked in for the 2 hour trek on Saturday... More

Went a 2 hour hack with my friend today. I was very impressed how fit, healthy and well loved and looked after the horses were. All the staff were very friendly and was really impressed that Lisa (the proprietor) joined in on the ride on her amazing and very talented horse. Lisa took the time to carefully match each riders...

Perfect weather, beautifully kept horses and ponies, friendly staff AND a hack over the lovely Cannock Chase. What more can I say? I took my boys, who haven't ridden as much as I. The ride leaders took great care to find suitable horses for all of us and I was delighted that they took a lot of time actually giving... More

I was really quite nervous about riding but the staff were very patient and picked a suitable horse for me and gave me pointers when we were out riding to make it easier and... More

All of the horses are sound and safe for all levels of riders. There are a number of treks throughout the day for beginners, mixed ability and experienced riders. There is... More

Really nice to be able to trek out onto the Chase and not just plod around a paddock or a ring. A super sense of freedom, but... More
