Horsey Heaven!

First visit to Cannock Chase Trekking Centre and we absolutely loved our mixed-ability ride. Plenty of opportunities to trot and canter. Everyone was very friendly & helpful and the scenery was fantastic. We will definitely be returning soon. Fabulous horses & Lisa and her team made us feel very welcome. A wonderful afternoon.

Fantastic riding experience.

If you love horses and beautiful scenery, this place is for you. Lisa (owner) has an amazing selection of horses and takes great care to find one to match your riding ability. The centre is extremely well run and her staff are superb; they are always friendly and are constantly keeping a check to make sure everyone is safe.
I have ridden with them several times now and have seen them deal with all sorts of situations always calmly and with absolute professionalism. I can not praise them highly enough.
Make sure you visit the Ranch too - best coffee ever!!

Top class

Another fab trek in the Autumn subscribe. Lisa and her team are fantastic and make sure you are matched with the right horse. I also would mention these are not like usual trekking centre horses - there are lots of different breeds, all safe & sane but at the same time responsive enough for an experienced rider. All trained by Lisa.
Just one thing would make the experience better- please please please put a vegan savoury option back on the menu. 😊.

Fabulous way to spend an afternoon away from the normal hectic routine, free from traffic and technology. Cannock chase is beautiful and tranquil so being able to enjoy this horse trekking with Lisa and the team was amazing. My 13 year old daughter and I are total beginners but that did not worry Lisa who matched us with 2 lovely, steady, sure footed horses (Pirate and Paddy) who knew what they were doing!! The team showed us how to trot so we and the horses were comfortable, so no lead reins involved!!. The team moved up and down the group checking we were all ok without being over bearing. So nice to find an activity a 13 year old enjoys which did not involve a screen!! She couldn't stop talking about it (although her legs will be hurting tomorrow!!) The cafe was clean and a great way to finish off (milkshake and brownies were amazing). Covid safety precautions were in place and adhered to. Cant wait to return. (Didn't manage to get a horsey photo but got one of the brownie instead!!)

Great riding experience and amazing Bistro - we will be going back.
Aug 2021
Great riding experience for our 11 years old children and the bistro cafe is worth a visit on it's own. We had no concerns leaving our children in the hands of the instructors and they came back from their session wanting to go straight back out again.

We have visited several other riding stables and none of them get close to the quality provided by this one.

Wonderful time
Aug 2021 • Family
I took my niece for the one hour trek today and we had a great time. The staff were all really friendly, experienced and helpful.
The horses were obviously very well looked after, and were happy to do their job.

The centre has great facilities, with a lovely cafe. Everything ran really well from start to finish and we will definitely visit again.

Amazing! Couldn’t recommend more!
Aug 2021 • Family
Absolutely amazing experience! All of the staff were so lovely and actively speaking to all of us guests, making us feel a part of the centre. I went on the 1 hour beginners trip and wasn’t expecting to be so independent. I was supervised the whole time (as other staff members were riding too) but ended up trotting on my own and felt like I was really riding a horse. I had a fantastic time and the cafe was great too - I had a great milkshake and some pancakes.

The best place I've been to
Aug 2021 • Family
It was my 2nd time riding and they explained everything so much better than the other place I went to! They actually let you do most of the stuff by yourself whilst giving good tips! Definitely recommended .

Amazing experience!
Aug 2021 • Family
Had enjoyable and memorable day at the Cannock Chase Trekking Centre.
Bad weather was forecast but you are almost completely sheltered in the Cannock chase woods so not a problem.
Great day had by all- kids, adults and teenagers.

Staff friendly and helpful

Coffee, milkshake, cake and ice cream in the cafe were delicious too.

Highly recommended!

A great place and a lovely team
Jul 2021
A fantastic location and with a really great team who look after both clients and horses to a first class standard. The on site bistro is a lovely place to be for riders and non-riders, with a superb range of food and drinks. My daughter and I have been riding here often for the last three years and can honestly say, they never fail to impress.
