Fab two hour mixed ability check for myself and 14 year old daughter.... Even though it was freezing out, we had a fantastic time, daughter went off with canter group whilst I wanted to chill and just take in scenery, so stayed with trot group.

After suggesting a 2hr trek to one of my close friends, who hadn’t ridden since she was a child (I ride more regularly), she was completely blown away by the whole experience and absolutely loved it!!
Lisa and her team have an incredible setup who cater for ALL abilities, her knowledge and experience truly shines through, and allocating you to the ride horse after a brief chat about your riding experience is always spot on!! Thank you all for such fabulous riding experiences every time I come and see you, and for truly looking after my friend too. We will be back!!

I have been coming to CCTC for around 4 yrs now. It was the first place I tried in seeing about getting back to horse riding after a 35 yrs break. I have to say they were very good at talking to me to see about my apprehension in getting back on a horse. I was matched perfectly to the right horse and I did the two hour mixed ability trek. Within 15 minutes I was smiling. The trek just got better as the time passed. I have not stopped smiling since! I was given the confidence to even go for a short canter. Everything is totally under control. The girls have been guided by Lisa (owner) to a very high standard. The horses are all fully trained by Lisa. You never feel that they are going to do anything silly (but do please remember you are sat on a live animal) but even if any of them spook it's over and done with in a split second and normal calmness is very quickly resumed. Then you have the scenery of riding round the Chase! Anytime of the year this is just perfect, in any weather. Finally, on top of all this you the Ranch Bistro, where anyone (rider or not) can pop in for a bite to eat or a drink. Perfect setting to catch up with friends before or after a ride or even just to meet up with friends for a meal. The high quality continues in the Bistro. If you do have any queries you are always welcome to ask and everything is sorted and answered for you. Please do go and give it at least one visit.

Had a two hour track experience with Ellie today and it was absolutely amazing.

When I arrived at the centre I was told I was the only person on the treck so just myself and Ellie the instructor went out, this made it a truly special experience.

Ellie is an absolute delightful soul and made my trek I wonderful experience, we had lots of chats about Pineneedles and crystals I just can’t say how much of a wonderful wonderful time I had.

Cannock chase tracking centre is by far the most delightful, professional, beautiful place I’ve had the pleasure of riding at and the staff there are brilliant, the animals and horses are just so delightful.

I will certainly be booking again and
Making it a regular events thank you I had a wonderful day

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.

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!!

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!!)
