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 restaurant, 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 shortcut that reduces the course by around 3 miles.

The course offers 50 optional jumps to suit all ages and abilities. We limit 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. We often have a Novice Ride slot bookable which is perfect for new or nervous riders, or those with young horses.

All of the jumps range in height from 20cm-80cm.

Can I cycle with a rider?

Unfortunately we cannot permit bicycles or other forms of transport on the route, for the safety of both yourself and those on horseback.

Is there a photographer?

Yes! We have a photographer present at each ride. Images can be purchased by clicking here and will be uploaded by the Friday after the event. If you would like your photos removed from our online library, please send a full description of your outfit and horse, as well as the date you attended, to info@cotswoldfarmpark.co.uk.

Is there water on the course?

The course does take you through a small pool of water but there is room to walk around the outside.

What safety equipment do I need to wear?

A hard hat must be worn. We would also strongly advise you to wear body protection.

Is any of the course on a road?

There is a short stretch on the road and two crossings.

Do you provide horse accommodation?

Should you be travelling from further afield, we are unfortunately unable to provide accommodation for your horse. We do have an on-site campsite, if you are looking for somewhere to stay whilst your horse is stabled.

Please see below a list of local accommodation sites which offer overnight stays for horses. Please note that we do not have any affiliation or links with any of these establishments, you would need to contact the business directly for further information or availability.
