Our Fun Rides

Bring your horse and enjoy exclusive access to our private Estate in the heart of the Cotswolds, along sun spangled woodland trails, grass gallops, open hillsides and through the clear waters of the river Windrush.

Our Fun Rides start and finish at the Cotswold Farm Park, where there is hot and cold refreshments available in our Café, as well as toilet facilities. There is also ample suitable parking for horse boxes. The route covers approximately 10 miles of varied terrain with an optional short cut that reduces the course by around 3 miles.

The course now offers 50 optional jumps to suit all ages and abilities. We have also limited our ticket availability to set start times and horse numbers, to ensure you can take your time and enjoy your own space throughout the ride.
