Welcome Page Holiday Lodges Trekking Arena Hire





We have not renewed our riding establishments license this year, for the first time in thirty-two years, so we will not be taking any more trekkers on our horses.

Over the years we have been very lucky to have lovely countryside to ride through, although we have had to share it with more and more visitors over the years, as people discover our little corner of Durham.

We have also been very lucky to have had valuable friends who have helped us so much over the years. We would like to thank all who have helped and worked for us, making riding with us a happy experience.

We remember the real stars of our centre and were surprised at the number of people who responded with their memories of Dixie, Scout & Beauty when they sadly passed away in recent years. We have fond memories of Polo, Nadj, Herbie, Jill, Sam & Tico, to name a few. There are so many that we were lucky to have in our lives. We don't have the grand old reliable trekking horses now, we made the mistake of breeding competition horses!

Last but not least, so many of our customers have become good friends, through our work, we have met so many interesting, kind and caring people who have enriched our lives.

Thank you so much to everyone who have come into our lives here at West Hoppyland. We will still be here enjoying our beautiful countryside, now running as a livery yard, and welcoming people to our cosy country lodges!
