Horse riding at Ashridge

Enjoy a fun ride on the Ashridge Estate

Ashridge is a great place to ride your horse. With over 30 miles of public and permitted bridleways, there are plenty of places to explore on a ride.

Find your way

We also have a permitted bridleway network covering a further 20 miles of paths. We have created a waterproof pocket-sized riding map which shows all of the bridleways at Ashridge. Be sure to stop by the visitor centre shop during your next visit to pick up a copy. 


Permits and day passes

We sell annual permits that run from 1 June - 31 May in any given year, these are £68 (£58 for children). We also sell day permits priced at £8 (£6 for children). We also six-month permits that cover you to ride on our permitted bridleways from 1 December - 31 May, which are half the annual price.
If you would like more information about horse riding or would like to ride on our permitted bridleway network, please contact our Visitor Centre on 01442 851227. 
If you would like to bring a horse box or trailer to the estate, please park on surfaced carparks to avoid damage to the ground.


Riding responsibly

Ashridge is enjoyed by many visitors. To ensure everyone has an enjoyable visit, please use only the designated bridleways and do not allow your horse to gallop anywhere on the estate. When riding on permitted bridleways, your permit must be displayed at all times.
