Woodland Ride & XC Field


The Woodland Ride meanders through stunning countryside overlooking the beautiful Tyne Valley. The ride combines a cross country course with over 30 separate jumps, most of which are graduated in height to accommodate beginners and young horses through to more advanced riders or experienced horses.

The 6.5km route passes between conifer woodlands, rough grassland, arable headlands and hay meadows. In addition to the diversity of the landscape, wildlife abounds with deer, brown hare, badgers, farmland birds and, on occasion, a red squirrel.

High Plains is Course Number 39 of UK Riders & Northern Chasers, an organisation which promotes farm rides. UK Chasers carry out an annual inspection to ensure that it is as safe as possible for members to use. A strict code of conduct is adhered to in order to regulate activity on the course and ensure that all visitors have a safe and enjoyable day out.

Woodland Ride Fun 



The Cross Country Schooling Field includes a water jump and a variety of ditches, banks and technical obstacles over which to school your horse. The Field is beautifully sheltered by conifer woodlands on all sides and located away from the activity in the main yard. 

As well as our regular Woodland Ride and Cross Country Schooling Days, the ride and field are available for hire subject to ground conditions and other activities.

Prices are as follows:

Woodland Ride & XC Field: £25 per horse

XC Field alone: £20 per horse

Arena: £20 for one horse up to 1 hour plus £5 each extra horse. 

(Sorry but the arena is rarely available on weekday evenings due to popular demand for lessons)
