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

On first arrival not that impressed but once through the gate pleasantly surprised, members of staff excellent couldn't do enough for you and constantly making sure everyone was ok, only improvements that could be made would be some kind of reception area, drinks facility's etc for people that are waiting. Overall thoroughly enjoyed! :-)

I hadn't been on a horse in about 6 years and I visited the trekking centre with my partner and his family (who go quite regularly). 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

This trekking centre is fantastic. The owner, Lisa, is clearly extremely knowledgeable about horses and looks after each and everyone of her horses as individuals with care and attention. 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

My daughter, like most little girls loves ponies. The animals here are placid and well matched to less experienced riders. The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable about the horses and the area. 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

Booked a 2 hour novice trek for my daughter's 11th birthday. Lovely friendly set up, horses were very placid and well looked after. Thoroughly enjoyed trek through lovely countryside. Deer were about too. We all got to trot short distances even though I had never ridden before. The staff that rode with us were helpful and regularly checked we were... More

I've been to the trekking centre twice now and have been partnered with well behaved, forward going horses who are well cared for and content. The team look after all riders and the scenery is wonderful. It's an added bonus when you see deer too! A great place to get rid of the stresses of every day life :)

I enjoyed a lovely two hour experienced ride across the chase. The Trekking centre is very well organised with friendly and knowledgeable staff, especially Lisa the proprietor. The horses are all well cared for and well trained. Lisa takes the time to match you to the right horse and tell you a bit about their character. Cannock Chase is a... More

My friends and I enjoyed our first trip to Cannock on an 2 hr experienced ride. Lisa, who was not working that day and was taking her daughter out, made the effort to come to the stables first to meet us and have a chat. Thought this was a lovely touch. The girls that rode out with us were great,... More
