Cumbrian Heavy Horses

Book a heavy horse-riding experience at Cumbrian Heavy Horses, the only BHS approved heavy horse-riding centre in the world. Here you can ride these gentle giants in the stunning Lake District countryside.

Novice riders can book a one-hour farm riding experience where mounting and dismounting will be covered, and riding will be at a steady pace with no cantering or galloping. More experienced riders can book a two-hour experience. Fell riding is also on offer with routes covering the Duddon Valley and other areas of wild fell land.

Beach riding along the western Lake District coastline is a fabulous experience for confident and experienced riders. Beach riding is available as part of a group or individual experience.
