A ride with Angie along the fantastic trails over Ullswater should be top of every riders bucket list ... and my horse agrees!
Dear Angie,
Probably not going to be popular for this but what do you do (as a commercial business) to safeguard the footpaths/bridleways that cross the open fell?
Could you say something to reasure those that may think the environmental impact under hoof, may not be good? (I know mountain bikers are be worse...) but I guess on horseback, you have the opportunity to stay off the footpaths now there is the right to roam on the open fell?
I go up Arthur's Pike (one of your advertised 'routes' and have recently seen hoof damage on some footpaths. I'm sure you recognise how fragile these footpaths are, and mountain bikers are the worse!
As a fell shuffler I try to shuffle/walk off these paths as much as is feasible... more tiring but helps protect these paths and sheep trodds.
I'm sure you are fully aware of how churned up pony trekking routes get.
But don't horses have the opportunity to stay of the footpaths and bridleways unless there are stony tracks/bridleways less suseptable to damage?
Wild fell ponies don't damage these paths?
Any thoughts?
O M Goodness - cannot recommend this place enough - totally awesome ride. Views to die for, grassy tracks that go on for miles and a river to splash in on the way home - perfect.
I would love to know more details 😉

Hi everyone - I hope everyone is well 🙂

I’ll be popping some ride dates on soon - keep an eye out..

We’ve had some beautiful weather over the last few days!
Last night I popped up the fell to catch the late evening sun.... certainly wasn’t disappointed. 🤩

A year to the day when I decided to set up
Ullswater Saddleback Horse Trails...
though I’d been thinking about it for over 10 years!
(I love this view so much I even trailed us up in my wedding dress 😆 just to have that view in our photos.)

We were married 10 years (last year) which reminded me that’s how long I’ve wanted to do this...
Its only taken a pandemic to give me time contemplate..
So, in March last year on this very day
with this amazing view & my amazing horse to pop my big brave pants on... and GO FOR IT!
Still took till September to convince myself..
But I’ve done it! I love it! ...and
I am so very thankful for everyone who has liked, shared & most of all ridden with me - I just love sharing these views with you 😍
Thank you - Angie & Elle x


19/03/2021

I’ve not been able to get out for a ride lately...

So, I sat in the paddock watching these two wonderful characters!

Ozz looks very “put out” by Elle telling him
“that’s my ball - ✋ back off”
😆

Just love these two ❤️

We have had some beautiful weather - it was so peaceful up on the fell today!
This is a 3 hour round trip & just over 8 miles from my base - Elle needs to be a bit fitter (as do I!) but as I’ve not been up here since December we couldn’t resist!

Spring has sprung here in the Lake District -
Some of the exclusive riding on offer with
Ullswater saddleback horse trails.

[02/22/21]   WHAT DO I OFFER ?

I have many years experience as a trek leader here in the Lake District - I wanted to take my passion for the mountains and escapism and offer this to other horse owners.
“I mean who wouldn’t want to ride into the mountains on their trusty steed & feel like your on the set of a Western?!”

GUIDED RIDES (with your OWN horse)
- if you would like to join me for the day I offer:
2hrs to full day guided riding with your own horse.
I have secure off road parking - with riding onto the fells, with spectacular views! Fairytale castle?
No problem! Quaint little villages, with somewhere to quench your thirst - under a weeping willow tree perhaps? We have it all!

WANT TO STAY FOR LONGER?
I also work alongside accommodation providers from Hotels/pubs (once they are allowed to open)
to cosy Bothys (sleeping 2)
chalets & SC sleeping for larger groups.
Some riders like to bring their other half or non riding friends who go off and walk.
Maximum 4 people in a group ride & 18+ years
Mostly turn out for the horses.

*PLEASE NOTE that each accommodation offers different riding from their doorstep - from easy bridleways & open fell
to
*trail riding with challenging terrain - steep hills, rocky ground, river crossings and the odd little bridge to cross. Ground can be soft in some areas.
*Some terrain may require leading the horses.
High mountain tops with the most spectacular views over the Lake District!
*For the more challenging routes horses and riders must have a good to high level of fitness.
Horses must be sure footed, shod/boots required.. barefoot is fine just left to your own judgement.
I require all horses to be vaccinated/wormed & public liability & insurance upto date.

I always try my best to order in the sunshine...
but do recommend that you bring thermals and water proofs (just in case!)

Please send me a PM if your interested - please provide as much info as you can to make it easier for me to tailor to your requirements.

Thanks Angie, Elle & Ozzy!
