Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Bigland Hall Equine Group is a horse riding school located in Backbarrow. We offer lessons that are suitable for anyone and all ages. We teach all year round and in a very nice indoor arena, so we can give lessons rain or shine. We do both group and private lessons, and classic dressage lessons for medium to advanced riders. We have a pony club that connects children with ponies for a ride, looking after the horses, or grooming. We also offer trekking lessons and hacking. We do full day, half day, and two hour long hacks in different locations. These rides are held in a variety of different areas.

“Great riding”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

I have been to many places to ride but this place is great. The people are very friendly and there are horses for everyone. Last year 6 of us rode the coast to coast (almost 200 miles) in ten days mainly on bridle ways and had a great time. The lessons go from beginner to advanced classical.
There is also an adult riding club and treks in The Lake District. I don't go anywhere else now

“Fantastic trek”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

I went on one of Bigland's 2 day treks. This is the best way to see the Lake District especially as the horses do the hard work. The horses are fit and very safe (especially on the odd road we had to use). We went to Conniston and back over the 2 days stopping off at a pub for lunch. The route was really scenic and went across a fell on the second day which was a new experience. The leaders were great fun. This was a fast paced ride which experienced riders would enjoy.

The riding stable is well run, the horses well looked after and safety is paramount.

“One of the Best.”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

So many riding stables are disappearing, but this one does actually cater for all levels of horsemanship and the hacking is just superb.
