Escrick Park Rideways, one of the best off road horse riding courses in Yorkshire. 
Are you in need of quiet, off road hacking with no traffic worries....we have the answer!  Escrick Park Rideways provides private tracks through park and woodland with great box parking and off loading facilities.

Cross Country Horse Riding Course

Set over a 6.5 mile loop, this course provides a good selection of obstacles, which are all optional and with nothing over 1m in height.  This course is also ideal for hacking if you prefer or taken at speed . 

Please see our gallery for some examples of obstacles available.

Extended Horse Riding course

A further 20 miles of extended hacking is available around the Estate on mostly private tracks linking into the cross-country course. Most of this hacking is completely traffic free and involves only two crossings over small unclassified country roads. This route is ideal to increase fitness levels and to test endurance riders, or for those who do not particularly like to jump. Blue arrows on the course map indicate this route and we suggest that the you become familiar with the Cross Country Course before attempting the extended hacking.

What People Say
Dr Helen Vos
"I have been a member for over 10 years & in that time have hacked a variety of horses, many youngsters, on our own or with others. It's fantastic to be off the roads where other road users can be so lacking in understanding of the need to slow down & generally be considerate to horses. I feel as safe as you can be out hacking so have made the most of the Rideways to get my young horses out & about without having to worry about unpredictable traffic. There are various cross country jumps, mostly 2'-3', for those that wish to jump; again very useful for starting off young horses over small obstacles."
