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 😉

Day 2 for Jo & Andy
Arthur’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 “The Gallops” to admire where we had just been!

A 2 day riding stay for Jo & Andy.. along with their gorgeous Highland ponies - Lucy & Sienna.
They were very “at home” with this terrain.

First day - Patterdale Horse Shoe - taking in the spectacular views.
A ride for exploring this fantastic area..
some challenging areas, & leading the horses where needed.

This weather is scorchio 🥵
Only thing for it is shaded paddles in the river..
Thank goodness this is in our fields!

Thought it could be too hot for a mountain top today - we set off with a paddle in the river..
and then onto the fell - were the breeze was wonderfully cool!
So off we went bagging a Wainwright on horseback 🤩 @ 533m

Smiles from ear to ear this morning...
set off in the rain - mist was down, crossed my fingers that it would clear and give us a view!
🤩 it certainly did!

Words can’t express how much I love doing this - and watching people’s amazement as the views appear ❤️

A weekend spent in great company 😃

First trail ride, soaking up the spectacular
Lake District views -
mainly in sunshine... with a
“Quick! Let’s get the waterproofs on” moment.

All good though no “downpour” spoiling our fun!

Hi everyone - I hope everyone is well 🙂

I’ll be popping some ride dates on soon - keep an eye out..

We’ve had some beautiful weather over the last few days!
Last night I popped up the fell to catch the late evening sun.... certainly wasn’t disappointed. 🤩

A year to the day when I decided to set up
Ullswater Saddleback Horse Trails...
though I’d been thinking about it for over 10 years!
(I love this view so much I even trailed us up in my wedding dress 😆 just to have that view in our photos.)

We were married 10 years (last year) which reminded me that’s how long I’ve wanted to do this...
Its only taken a pandemic to give me time contemplate..
So, in March last year on this very day
with this amazing view & my amazing horse to pop my big brave pants on... and GO FOR IT!
Still took till September to convince myself..
But I’ve done it! I love it! ...and
I am so very thankful for everyone who has liked, shared & most of all ridden with me - I just love sharing these views with you 😍
Thank you - Angie & Elle x

I’ve not been able to get out for a ride lately...

So, I sat in the paddock watching these two wonderful characters!

Ozz looks very “put out” by Elle telling him
“that’s my ball - ✋ back off”
😆

Just love these two ❤️
