If you are a novice or experienced rider Boltby Trekking has something for everyone. Based outside Thirsk with access to lots of bridleways and tracks through the woods its a delightful area to ride in.

Just been for a 1 hour hack with Shelia and wow what a fantastic experience. Stunning views of the Yorkshire moors and plenty of opportunities to practice trotting. Shelia is a wonderful instructor and puts you at ease. Cannot wait to return
