I located the Trekking Centre on FB and via their email system and asked if they would have a ride suitable for somebody with a back problem. I was really looking forward to this because it would have been a real treat. But nobody ever replied!

She has always loved horses although had never ridden one so I contacted the team at Cannock Chase Trekking Centre who gave me a choice of ways to... More

Visited for my birthday and loved it. The trek group was small which was a bonus and staff catered to all of our needs. Me and my friend were paired with two fab horses who gave us both a fun ride that we were comfortable with, given our differing abilities. Would recommend this to anyone :)

Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised as the base was a lovely wooden building with great décor that contained a little café too. Reception staff were very friendly and welcoming and we were thrilled to hear only... More

They cater for all ages and skills of rider here. Being a novice I was given Sky a lovely gentile horse who looked after me as we rode through the forest up to the ridge with its views across to Telford. An hour’s gentile ride was exhilarating.

My partner begged me to go horse riding/trekking with her in exchange for football and pub times, I agreed! It was the 27/12/16 and we arrived around 1300hrs to a lovely newly built reception/bistro/coffee shop and had a hot beverage. Not feeling the thought of riding a horse at all, I must say how welcome I was made to feel... More
