Testimonials
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!

Lovely ride, beautiful ground and we had some super canters! We love it here, thanks so much! It's very well sign posted and we adore the route amongst the bluebells.  We visit as many times as we can!   Thank you to you and your team for keeping the park so well maintained, the ground was fabulous today.  KD

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 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."

I am now retiring and leaving the area, but just wanted to say it has been a pleasure to be able to use the park for many years.  Many thanks.

I brought my daughter and her friend here today, 14 year olds, and two ponies. We had a fantastic time and have recommended it to all the owners at our yard.  I also want to say how friendly the ladies were in the estate office… your team really were very welcoming!

I really enjoy the Rideway and the freedom from the awful traffic on the roads. Its so nice and peaceful and better I think for my horse than the hard tarmac. He always seems to enjoy himself at Escrick Park and so do I!

Visited Escrick for the first time today! Easily found by our sat nav just of the A19. Brilliant facilities had a lovely ride out without having to worry about the usual cars bikes dogs etc! Brilliant parking enough room for us to have a picnic next to the box . Very friendly informative staff who answered the phone the day before to answer my many questions and on the day! Maps provided of the routes and easy to follow marked trails. Plenty of different types of X country jumps for the more adventurous... We were happy tootling about well worth the £20!   Thank you! We will be back

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.
