Fantastic ride out this morning! Stunning views and excellent company. If you have your own horse and want to experience stunning views with someone who knows the terrain and guides you faultlessly then get booked! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
We were delighted to host our first ever equine guests this week, providing overnight accommodation for them in a paddock in the grounds whilst their owners stayed at our sister pub Queen's Head Askham, as part of their riding adventure with Ullswater Saddleback Horse Trails
They were so lucky with the weather too! ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿด
This looks great. Bring your own horse for guided rides. Scenery looks fantastic.

A ride with Angie along the fantastic trails over Ullswater should be top of every riders bucket list ... and my horse agrees!
Dear Angie,
Probably not going to be popular for this but what do you do (as a commercial business) to safeguard the footpaths/bridleways that cross the open fell?
Could you say something to reasure those that may think the environmental impact under hoof, may not be good? (I know mountain bikers are be worse...) but I guess on horseback, you have the opportunity to stay off the footpaths now there is the right to roam on the open fell?
I go up Arthur's Pike (one of your advertised 'routes' and have recently seen hoof damage on some footpaths. I'm sure you recognise how fragile these footpaths are, and mountain bikers are the worse!
As a fell shuffler I try to shuffle/walk off these paths as much as is feasible... more tiring but helps protect these paths and sheep trodds.
I'm sure you are fully aware of how churned up pony trekking routes get.
But don't horses have the opportunity to stay of the footpaths and bridleways unless there are stony tracks/bridleways less suseptable to damage?
Wild fell ponies don't damage these paths?
Any thoughts?
O M Goodness - cannot recommend this place enough - totally awesome ride. Views to die for, grassy tracks that go on for miles and a river to splash in on the way home - perfect.
I would love to know more details ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh bu**er! Not quite the ride I had planned ๐Ÿ™„

No phone reception when I pulled up and saw my smashed window... hhmm!
so used my initiative, flag cars down to ask if they had any duck-tape - can you imagine the look on folksโ€™ faces ๐Ÿ˜†
A lovely couple helped me out with some
ligament tape, Ha! Just shows!

Who needs a Mobile phone ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ when theres the kindness of strangers!
I didnโ€™t get their names unfortunately.. but thank you whom ever you both were ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

red squirrels, sparrow hawks, buzzards, herons....
and the odd goat ๐Ÿ

Might of had a Gnโ€™T with lunch โ˜บ๏ธ

Wrapping up with the last horse holidays of 2021๐Ÿด
Riding for 2/3hrs & full days still available.

DAY 1 for Sharon and Simon who joined me for a 2 day adventure..
We had a last minute change of trail here, the mountain rescue were tending to an incident on the path we were going to take.
So quick thinking on another route
(which also changed as the weather/fog started to close in ๐Ÿ™ˆ)
Good job itโ€™s easy to find somewhere else beautiful to take riders in this spectacular area.

Day 2 for Jo & Andy
Arthurโ€™s Pike Trail - stunning views over Ullswater &
The Heather is really starting to bloom

Glad we decided to ride the other end of Ullswater today...
we could see the heavy rain over Glenridding,
& we managed to avoid getting wet.

Great long fast canter up โ€œThe Gallopsโ€ to admire where we had just been!
