Horse Route

Ride Yorkshire

Ride Yorkshire


A lovely ride incorporating green lanes, long grassy tracks and farmland over gently rolling countryside. Can be easily jointed to the Sledmere to East Heslerton route to make a full day circular.

The route starts across arable farmland and joins the road to the village of Weaverthorpe where a bridleway gently rises and falls over grassy tracks. Long green lanes in a chalk landscape takes us on miles of off road riding and a bridleway with a variety of extensions available takes you through the valleys at Cottam.
