Take a look at what our visitors and liveries have to say…

My mum and I had a lovely morning with Lucy and Wally today. Lucy catered to mums requests, speed, length of hack etc. Really good company & highly recommend.

Thank you 😊.’

From the moment we arrived, we found a very warm welcome, everything was ready for horse and rider. Nice text later on to say horse was well settled and to confirm the time of our first days ride. Arrived next morning to find Willow had been turned out to stretch her legs, fed, mucked out and ready for tacking up. Had a fantastic ride up hill and down. Very good company, Lucy really charming and talkative. Back to the stables, everything was ready for Willow, and Wally Tracy’s steed taken care of by Lucy. Jobs done back to the CB Inn for supper. Next day later ride out different route via pub, nice cheeky gin n tonic then 1 mile home. Really appreciated Willow needed time to explore opening and shutting gates, plenty of opportunities and no rush. Cant thank Lucy enough for making our rides spectacular, we will definitely be back. Wally was a star stand in for Claude who unfortunately this time bunked off.’

‘Wally was not a disappointment at all a real 🌟.’

We’ve just had an absolutely fantastic 3 days of riding at Arkle Moor. Lucy looked after our horses as if they were her own. Nothing was too much trouble and the ponies were so happy and relaxed. We did a ride on our own with route guidance and a map and two rides guided by Lucy. The rides were perfectly tailored to our requirements and the scenery absolutely spectacular. Next year’s trip is already pencilled in!’

This was our second visit to Arkle Moor Riding Centre and Reeth. I was looking for an equine B&B, but somewhere that I could bring husband and dogs as well. We all had a wonderful time because the walking in this idyllic area is lovely and the hacking is too! Lucy took Smokey and I plus Riley & Debbie (who were also on their second visit!) on guided rides up hill & down dale, (literally!) through picturesque villages, along quiet country lanes & over the moors! We even visited the pub with the horses!

The horses were well looked after in cosy, clean stables with daily turnout. Lucy and Jane are very welcoming, kind and professional.’

Absolutely brilliant ride with Lucy and Wally today. I brought my own horse and had a 2.5 hour ride over the beautiful countryside and moorland, guided by Lucy (who did all the gates as well!). The ride was tailored to our requirements and every detail was taken care of. Thank you 🙂 we’ll be back soon.’

H HANCOX 05/2022

Highly recommended for anyone looking for something fun to do with their horse! We’ve done 2-hr rides both times we’ve been, but Lucy will take you on a guided ride of any duration. Such a great learning experience for my young cob (Mary), and as a rider it is fabulous to have the opportunity to ride in such beautiful and varied surroundings!’

3 of us returned to Arkle moor this year for 6 nights with our horses after an amazing 4 night stay last year – we had to come for longer this time! Can’t recommend the care our horses received highly enough, Lucy is a very experienced horsewoman and very knowledgeable of the area and the local riding. The horses settled in straight away and were very relaxed and happy in their stables. Maps and route guidance provided by Lucy was very easy to follow and tailored to exactly what we wanted for each days riding, the weather was great and the scenery over the moors is just breathtaking. We stayed locally in Turbine house which is one of Reeth Holiday Cottages beautiful self catering cottages which are next to the river and a 2 minute walk to the village center and close to all amenities. Such a fantastic place to be we have already booked for 6 nights next year!’

Had a fantastic 1-2-1 ride over the moors on Wally with Lucy and Hector as guides. Wally is a dream to ride and I fell in love with him. This experience is not to be missed and when I am back this way I will be coming back for another visit 10/10.’

k & m purton 08/2021

Lovely 3 hour ride, suited to myself and my horse. Well organised. Our guide Lucy was very helpful, Lucy’s cob Wally was traffic proof, great at gates and went in front or behind. The views were spectacular. Nice going canter tracks. Nice clean human toilet and wash area for your horse. I would recommend Arkle Moor Riding Centre 100%. Myself and Ike will come back for another guided ride in the future. I wish you the very best with your business, its fantastic 🐴👍

j fawbert 08/2021

I can’t recommend these stables enough. If you want to take your horse to a friendly yard, where your horse is well cared for, combined with the most spectacular riding from the doorstep, with the most friendly guide, then Arkle Moor Riding Centre is worth a visit

We stayed in nearby Reeth which is a lovely area just down the road from the stables.’

j dubbin 07/2021

Thank you for a lovely guided ride out today. Weather far better than forecast, unpredictable horse behaved (in hackamore) horses requirements met and riders entertained. Would definitely recommend, will be back, thank you .’

L WOOD 07/2021

I had such an amazing day today with our guide Lucy over varying terrain across the North Yorkshire Moors, 5* from me and Peppe. Would definitely come back to try a different route.’

Spent a wonderful three days here last weekend. Nothing was too much trouble. The horses had a five 🌟 treatment and Lucy was extremely helpful when my horse pulled a shoe on the first day. Wonderful riding, breathtaking scenery and amazing weather. I would definitely recommend it. Rides tailored to suit horse/rider ability. 👍👍👍👍👍 ….Take a guided ride for that extra wow factor xxx

K STURGESS 07/2021

Our horses have just had an amazing 3 nights staying at Arkle Moor – they settled really well and were very well looked after. Fabulous riding straight from the stable yard for miles – breathtaking scenery with some lovely coffee shops along the way. Nothing was too much trouble and I would recommend them to look after your horse on your next trekking holiday ‘

J BOWES 07/2021

Fabulous Equine B & B with the most fantastic riding routes from the stable door. Really nice team of people who looked after my horse very well on full livery after a long days riding. Thanks again!’

A STAMPER 06/2021

‘Arkle Moor Riding Centre is one of the Yorkshire Dales hidden gems, very professional service and wonderful experience from booking to riding. The day was fully planned by the centre, and with the guidance of Lucy and Wally we had a fun packed 3 hour ride around some of the most picturesque scenery from the dales. Already planning our next trip. Thank you to all at Arkle Moor!’

‘Fran and I had a fabulous ride today. Lucy planned and guided the ride which took away the stress of map reading on unfamiliar terrain. We highly recommend you visit and we will definitely be back to do it again!’

‘To everyone at Arkle Moor Riding Centre.. Thank you so much for all your help! The horses were so spoilt during their stay with you and thank you for the route advice (I’m so glad we went up ‘Old Gang Beck’, it was fascinating) Our trip was amazing and we couldn’t have asked for a better start, in a more beautiful place. I really hope to stay with you again.’

t fleming 07/2020

‘Cant recommend enough! Warm, friendly, family run business. Nice stables and tidy yard. We were provided with maps and routes for our trekking to meet our needs as we had 3 children ranging from 4-10 yrs. Use of the arena, with a lovely surface,was a bonus. Stalls were kept very clean, we didn’t need to do anything. We will be back.’

l murrie 09/2019

‘Very caring family run yard with miles of some of Britain’s best off road hacking!’
