Woodland Pigs grazing noxious weeds in our woodlands. Riders, please do not be alarmed, we are re-routing the ride around this area so you do not come into contact. There is even a new hacking lane home over a grassy paddock rather then the rather long stoney road out.

We would like to say a thank you today. One of our Rideways members, 9 year old Jemima, took a tumble yesterday. She was extremely brave having suffered a badly broken leg but the First Response, Ambulance Service and Yorkshire Air Ambulance quickly attended.

J Jessop

"I just want to say thank you for a most enjoyable day riding the tracks. I struck on the idea of using the rideways as a way of entertaining my grand daughter during the school half term and it worked a treat. As no-one else was out on the tracks while we rode our horses, the wildlife was much in evidence and we passed within a few yards of a stag at one point in the woods. He looked at us and carried on browsing - Fantastic to be so close to a wild creature without it running away! We saw more deer and other wildlife and enjoyed the tranquility and scenery, particularly the autumn leaf colours and the sunbeams filtering down through the trees as we carried on the ride"

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.

"It’s a fabulous safe place for hacking out even with a novice horse and the variety of routes is great for improving fitness levels."

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."

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!

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

"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."

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.

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.
