Pony Trekking

Come and unwind with a relaxing pony trekking session at Coloured Cob Equestrian Centre in Creswell, a beautiful mining village in the beautiful county of Derbyshire.

With fast and easy access from Worksop, Mansfield, Chesterfield and Rotherham (all under 30 mins. away by car) and a short distance from Nottingham, Derby and Doncaster (all under 45 mins. Away), we’re well placed to make a countryside getaway with the added fun of trekking astride one of our beautiful ponies.

Our Equestrian Centre and Riding School offers a wealth of horse and pony trekking experiences including treks through the archaeological beauty spot of Creswell Crags, a limestone gorge, honeycombed with caves that dates back to the Ice Age.

Enjoy the many year-round benefits of a rural setting, with fresh clean air away from traffic and stress of city and town life and nourish your passion for horse and pony trekking (or create the passion for the first time after lessons from one of our riding experts!).

Our pony treks are suitable for beginners right through to advanced and last from 30 minutes to 3 hours.
Whether you spend a whole morning or afternoon with us or just an hour, you will return home with a fantastic riding experience to tell your friends and family about, plus you will have improved your horse riding skills too.

Benefits of Pony Trekking

To the uninitiated observer, a pony trek may look like all the rider does is just sit there while the horse does all the work. But anyone who has actually ridden a horse or pony will know how well of the mark this is!

There is much more to horse riding and pony trekking than one might expect. The benefits are numerous: firstly, there’s enormous enjoyment to be had. Also, noticeable improvements to physical and mental fitness and of course a chance to enjoy the fantastic, open, Derbyshire countryside.
