The Peak District has an impressive network of ex railway lines, moorland and bridleways that are ideal for a relaxing horse ride with your family or friends. It is also a great way of enjoying the Peak District moorland views without having to put on your walking boots!
There are a number of riding centres in the county who offer everything from one hour lessons to half and full day treks. Their local knowledge and experience will guarantee a fantastic day out for all.
If you are lucky enough to own your own horse then places such as Macclesfield Forest, the Monsal Trail and the Pennine Bridleway are all great places to explore.
To help you plan your holiday we have got together some popular riding stables and routes in Derbyshire so that you can plan rides around your accommodation or even choose accommodation close to the riding school you want to go to!
