This event is no longer available.

This trek (approx ½ hour familiarisation & 1 ½ hour trek) is organised by a quality riding stables & show jumping yard close to the River Mersey and West Pennine Trail. The trek is designed for beginners or novice riders; it will be a very gentle ride on trained horses accompanied by escorts on foot for those that wish. After the ride we will retire to the on site cafeteria for bacon butties and cup of tea/coffee. Non Riders are welcome. The ride is off road and will encompass riding alongside the River Mersey in the Cheshire countryside – you never know, you might even find you are riding an ex international show jumper who has arrived for a gentle retirement at Ashton Hall.

Riding hats are provided and must be worn. Please wear sensible footwear preferably boots with a small heel and ankle support; comfy, warm clothes; waterproofs if raining and gloves just in case as the reins can rub your hands. Jeans are not suitable. This event is not weather dependent (unless it is very icy) so please come prepared for bad weather.

Please note that the maximum weight is 16 stone for this event – you will be paired up with a horse that is appropriate for your height and weight.

A lovely group recently returned from a glorious ski trip to Sestriere in Italy. We arrived with some trepidation as there had been no fresh snow for a month however on arrival it was obvious that the resort was proficient with its piste management and the runs were wonderful. We were lucky enough to get some fresh snowfall during our stay too which added to the trip. Many people ski with Spice to be part of the fabulous group feel of our trips and come back again and again - we always make sure that no-one skis alone (unless they specifically want to) and are included within the various levels of ski groups. This was proved by us inviting our 2020 attendees to join us for our 2021 trip to Champoluc in the Monterosa Ski area again in Italy with an 85% take up already! There are still a few places left if you think you might like to join us!
