Park & Ride Out
This is where to find safe places to park up so you can ride out along some of Yorkshire's wonderful bridleways and quieter roads.
Some places are free, while at others you pay a fee - normally £5 or £10 per horsebox / trailer. Some places lead on to farm or private rides - they tend to be more expensive as they include access to the trails.
And don't forget that you can use our self-guided route maps to enjoy the best trail-riding in Yorkshire.
If you know of anywhere else to add to the list, please let us know! We charge a small amount to list private businesses, while laybys, village halls, etc are free.
Each place listed has space for at least 2 horseboxes / trailers. Where we list laybys, they're large, safe ones well off the road. Where we list verges, they're wide ones, firm ones on quiet roads well away from villages.
Click on the names or the map markers to find the places you're looking for. Often there isn't an exact postcode - it's best to use the W3W (What3Words) locator instead as it's much more accurate.
Worried about getting there? Instead of driving out to have a look before trying it for real, why not explore by Google StreetView? We're all trying to reduce our environmental footprint after all - and it's a lot cheaper!
