Escrick Park Rideways, North Yorkshire

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 a traffic free environment, on private tracks, for both horse and rider and the ideal facility to build up stamina in both horse and rider with acres of space to ride in open parkland and sheltered woodland. With great box parking and off loading facilities. Please note, we now have new "Day Rider" procedure in operation, please see General Information page for details.

The course is well draining and is rarely closed, however during the winter months, some of the jumps may become a little muddy under the tree cover. We always advise checking all obstacles before attempting.

Open from dawn to dusk everyday, riders can enjoy the course thoroughly.  Full instructions are available on the notice board in the horsebox parking area for weekend riding.  Please note that stewards patrol the course and CCTV is in operation.  Riders must pay as instructed before riding out.

We are undertaking a trial with woodland pigs in small portions of the woods under the thicker tree canopy to clear bracken and Himalayan Balsam.  These animals are in secured fenced areas and signage is in place for you to avoid these areas.  This is a temporary trial only.

The Events calendar is provided to advise of equine bookings or Estate shooting dates. Please check this before riding.

Escrick Rideways straight from the horses mouth.

I can not recommend this venue enough. Great parking and a very warm welcome. Me, my friends and our horses throughly enjoyed having a blast through the estate. It's a magical place to visit and would highly recommend it. We left with massive smiles and we definitely be returning again soon!

"As members since Rideways originally began 21 years ago, we still ride the course on a regular basis. The riding is excellent and the course is frequently being upgraded and new areas added. It is so wonderful to have this facility with jumps for practicing and training and miles of good, quiet hacks which can be ridden for ½ an hour or up to 2 hours or more, dependant upon whichever route you wish to follow."

Escrick Park was one of the places we rode the most and I have many, many fond memories of us on the rides and in the woods. Your facility is a treasure and allowed us to ride in a stress-free environment away from cars and enjoy the bluebells in spring and the deer roaming the clearings.

Thank you for providing such a lovely place for people to ride.

I had a lovely 2 hour hack around the Estate this morning, Beautiful day and that wind certainly blew the cobwebs away as well as my silk!  Great place for my lad's rehab. Already looking forward to coming back full time! :)

I have been a member of Escrick Park Rideways for 10years. It is mine and my horses favourite place. It is perfect for bringing my youngster on and getting her used to new things.  My older horse really enjoys it and relaxes straight away. The park is beautiful, you get really close to nature. The tracks and jumps are well maintained and offer a lot of variety.  Thank you for running such a lovely venue, I would be lost without it.

Thanks Escrick Park for another beautiful ride today. Myself and my friend Dawn came over in this glorious sunshine to ride in your parkland. I am writing really to say what a wonderful job you are doing, the tracks were amazing the ground was fab and the jumps were in very good state. Thank you to all that work tirelessly to keep this in this condition for us.

I just wanted to say how much I enjoy Rideways, I have been a member for five years and go regularly.  Thank you for running such an excellent venue.

"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."
