These rides take you over onto the Cartmel fells! You start the ride slowly climbing through the forest plantations and onto the fell, and as the rides go on there are some good opportunities to canter and some fantastic views over Morecambe Bay.
2 Hour Fell Ride
This is a ride out which takes you over Bigland Fells and through some stunning Lake District countryside.
The route starts by climbing out of Bigland Estate, through the forest plantations and onto the fells on the side of Cartmel Valley. From here the ride loops through the fields and countryside and returns back to Bigland.
The terrain is very varied and this ride is a good introduction to Hacking and Trail Riding. There are several opportunities to canter in the open fields which means this ride is not suitable for beginners.
Price Per Person £68
3 Hour Ride
For the more advanced and adventurous riders. This is a longer Fell Ride which goes over more challenging terrain and provides more opportunities to canter, where the ground is suitable.
The route continues from the 2hr Fell Ride down into Cartmel, passing through the famous Cartmel Race Course and back up through the outskirts of the Holker Estate to the other side of the valley once again looping back to Bigand.
The standard fell ride lasts for approximately 3 hours. Riders must be able to canter in balance in an open environment and have had experience of riding out as this is a faster paced ride.
There is also an alternative route for those that have done the Cartmel ride before which goes to the East of Lake Windermere into the forest tracks and returns over Canny Hill, a fabulous bridleway over the common land.
