Coniston 2 Day Ride
21 September @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
You begin your journey from Bigland Hall Equestrian riding out through the famous ‘Grizedale Forest’, a stunning area of the National Park. You will then ride along tracks and through the heart of the Forest taking in some breathtaking views. After several hours in the saddle you will be ready for your well earned rest. Eagles Head Pub, a 16th century farmhouse provides the perfect place for lunch.
After lunch its time to burn off some calories with long canters over Coniston Fells taking in the stunning views of the Lake. You will then drop down the edge of the Lake where you will have the chance to cool down your horse in the shallows.
After a fantastic day of riding you will be ready for your bed. You will stay overnight in Coniston at Oaklands Guest House. Your horse will spend the night in a local field.
On day 2, you will ride out under the foot of Coniston Old Man and the famous slate mines. There is a great history behind this area which we (the Myers Family) are strongly linked to and hope you will enjoy sharing our knowledge and passion for our birth place! The slate mines that you ride past were once owned and worked by the Myers’ past generations.
Your journey will now take you down into Trover and across onto Lowick Common. Here there is quiet scenery and gentle canters. For lunch you will stop off at a very nice ‘horse friendly’ pub, The Royal Oak at Spark Bridge where the food is great and the hospitality is excellent.
The afternoon is spent with a steady ride back to Bigland Hall Riding Centre.
