At Thornton Lodge Equestrian we believe that everybody, human or equine deserves a change of scenery once in a while! The Farm offers superb hacking but is just the start of miles of bridleways and quiet country lanes which cover glorious unspoilt countryside. This is the ideal area to relax, unwind and enjoy the great outdoors of rural North Yorkshire from horseback
After a fantastic day in the saddle you can rest assured that your horse will enjoy the comforts of the farm as much as you will. Following a good roll and feast in our securely fenced fields he can settle down for the night with home grown hay and a thick comfy bed in our purpose built stable yard ensuring he is rested and ready to go for the next day’s activities which might include a spin round our cross country course or a pop round the show jumping field; all included in your holiday price!
Riders are not forgotten either! Enjoy all the comforts of home in our 4 star farmhouse bed and breakfast rooms. Our award winning breakfast will set you up for the day and with tea and coffee on hand the sunny guest conservatory is the perfect place to relax after your day’s riding while you contemplate which of the many excellent local pubs to visit that night.
With plenty of activities available for the non rider nobody needs to be left out. We have bikes available for hire and direct access to a national cycle route, fresh water trout fishing, clay pigeon shooting and a huge network of public footpaths which will keep everyone from the serious walker to the recreational ambler happy. Further afield are the North Yorks Moors, The Dales and the world famous James Herriot country just waiting to be explored.
Please contact us to discuss your requirements about holidays with your horse. Prices vary depending on the exact needs of horse and rider and we are happy to tailor make a package especially to suit you.
