Hacks are all off road including to St.Cuthbert’s cave.

Once you have had an assessment lesson here at Swinhoe Farm Riding Centre why not try a hack out around the farm through the wood or to St.Cuthberts cave, which includes several breath taking views of the Cheviots and holy Island. 

  • St.Cuthberts Cave Ride is approx. 2 hours 15 mins, where you will see the dramatic sandstone Cave and spectacular views to the Cheviot Hills (Suitable for Novice riders upwards, must be able to Canter). 
  • Woodland Ride (1 hour) with beautiful views of Holy Island, Bamburgh and the coastline. This is suitable for beginner riders upwards (must be able to walk and trot on your own).

Hacks are for a maximum of five people per group, so that you learn to ride in open spaces, ride up and down hills. 

Please book in advance to avoid disappointment!

​All riders must have an assessment to ensure that they are suited to the horse and competent to go on a hack, (all of our horses are well mannered & professionally schooled).
