Guided rides COVID-19 Precautions As our rides are organised events, we are exempt from the 'Rule of Six'. We have Covid protocols in place, such as retaining your contact details for 'track and trace' purposes and maintaining social distancing. Please do not attend our rides if you have any symptoms beforehand, and you should let us know immediately if you develop symptoms within a fortnight of coming on a ride.
If you’re unsure about route-finding or want to meet new riding friends, join a guided ride - there's up to 5 or 6 people per group with 1 or 2 ride leaders. We do rides in the North York Moors, the Wolds, the Howardian Hills, Vale of York ... and elsewhere!
The ride fee is £30 without refreshments, £32 if it includes a drink or other refreshments.
Before your first ride, we send you a Rider Registration Form to complete, and for each ride there's a Ride Information Sheet with details of where to park, etc.
We can do one-off events for a group - such as for hen-parties, birthday celebrations, or a group of friends. Ask us for details!
We normally run at least one charity funride each year, where you follow a course with waymarks, maps and directions. The routes include sections on private land with access negotiated for the day.
Unfortunately we aren't doing any in 2020 because of Covid-19.

Guided Rides Sept-Oct 2020
Rides in red are fully booked - the rest still have 1 or more places (as of 29 Sept). If you're interested in one that's full, let us know so we can put you on the waiting list - people sometimes drop out at the last minute. Entry fee is either £30 or £32, depending if there's a drink or parking included. Ride length is shown in miles. For grading information, scroll down this page. Please email email@example.com or inbox us via Facebook for booking or more details.
Our guided rides are graded so you can choose the best ones for you and your horse. Unsure which rides are right for you? Just ask!
Grade 0: Walking ride only (3-4 miles, suitable for lead-reins, very novice riders and horses coming back into work)
Grade 1: 'Walk & Trot' (5-7 miles, easy terrain, slow steady pace, no cantering)
Grade 2: Gentle (8-10 miles, easy terrain, may include hills - will include short steady canters)
Grade 3: Standard (10-15 miles, mixed terrain, may include steeper hills and rougher sections - will include cantering)
Grade 4: Challenging (12 or more miles, hilly with some demanding terrain - varied pace)
Remember that the grades are relative: an area that seems flat to a horse used to the North York Moors or the Dales might be exhausting to a horse living near Selby or in Holderness!
"Thank you so much for these wonderful pictures and thank you for leading this brilliant ride. We loved every second of today." Sarah, Sept 2020
"It is my first year anniversary with Ride Yorkshire next weekend - The Rievaulx Ride was the first one I did with Diva and when I met Bill and Mel. The best thing I could have done to get me out and about! Diva and I clocked 350+ miles on organised rides and pleasure rides last year alone - and that's without the casual rides etc." Janet B, Feb 2020
“Just to say a big thanks for organising Sunday's ride. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and appreciate the hard work which must have gone into the smooth running of a lovely ride.”
“Thank you for a lovely day out. The horses enjoyed themselves and we enjoyed meeting new like-minded people. Looking forward to the next one!"
