Explore the great outdoors

Hacking at Barton End is an exceptional experience, giving you an opportunity to enjoy some of the most breath taking and unspoilt scenery of the Cotswolds. Hacks can be a great way to build confidence and put in to practise some of the skills that you have learnt in the school, in a totally relaxed environment.

Barton End Stables has direct access to a wide variety of terrains; explore open fields, streams, woods, bridle paths and off-road tracks. Experience unparalleled beauty as you journey with your faithful companion through some of Gloucestershire’s most coveted greenery.

All of our hacks are escorted by qualified staff and can be tailored to the capability and size of the group. If you ride alone there are hacks you can join, or we can offer a one on one tuition hack to really boost your confidence!

We are keen to ensure that you get the most from your ride and your mount, whilst remaining safe. To do this we need to be aware of your previous experience and level of riding, enabling us to match you successfully. If you are at all unsure, feel free to take up a 30-minute assessment session which will enable us to meet your capabilities.
