From the horses mouth

The Escrick Park Estate Rideways have been delighting horses and riders for over 21 years. Here are just few of the things the riders have had to say:

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! :)

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 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!

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.

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!

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.

"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."

Past Rideways Member

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 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.

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 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.

Margaret and Michael Gibson - Sherburn in Elmet
"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."
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."
Gill Sanders - Queen Margaret's Riding School & Livery Yard
"As the owner of a riding school and livery yard on the Escrick Park Estate I am both delighted and relieved to have such wondeful hacking on my doorstep. My clients, and everyone that I meet while out riding, enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside without the continual worry of traffic and other hazards on the roads. The jumps are a bonus for those who want a little extra excitement and are well designed to be as safe as solid obstacles can be. They are excellent for introducing novice horses or riders to cross country type fences. I would recommend the Escrick Park Rideways to all ages and all kinds of rider - there is something for everyone."
Sue Rodgers - Cawood
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!
