From a one day trek to a three night wild camping expedition.
We are trained mountain leaders with a lifetime’s experience of travelling with ponies
Not only is Clare a qualified Mountain Leader but she has travelled the Western Lake District on horseback to the top of Helvellyn with Hades Hill Pansy. Clare’s trip with Pansy was featured on the BBC.
Tailor made treks to hidden corners of the Lake District
From our base at the foot of Windermere we can take family groups on a one day adventure following an old pack horse route.
Start the day meeting the herd (in the winter you can help feed the ponies) then we load the pony with everything we need to cook lunch on an open fire as well as waterproofs, a communal shelter and snacks. Suitable for families, the walk is about 4 miles round trip back to our base.
Wild camping adventures
For the more adventurous traveller we take groups of up to 6 people on a three day wild camping trek with 4 ponies. We travel up to 8 miles a day over the iconic fells with breathtaking views of Cumbria and the Western Dales
Camping in tents and cooking on fire, the ponies carry all the basic equipment from pots and pans to tents and sleeping bags. All you need to bring is suitable all weather clothing and footwear and we take care of everything else.
