The Gaddesden Estate Ride

With the ever-increasing traffic on our roads, what could be better than riding your horse through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? 

The Gaddesden countryside is an enchanting mixture of parkland, arable and grazing interspersed with ancient woodland, much of it overlooking the lovely valley of the River Gade. As such, the estate is well supplied with farm roads, tracks and woodland rides. Our 8-mile, primarily off-road Ride features a five-furlong gallop and 28 optional jumps - mostly 2ft–3ft 3ins - which are suitable for novice horses and riders.
