Horse riding in Shropshire


There are over 600 miles of byways and bridleways crisscrossing their way through the Shropshire countryside.

There are a number of promoted long distance routes, such as the Jack Mytton Way, which can be tackled in sections, as well as many different circular routes of varying lengths.  Many of these can be linked to create your own routes, by using the interactive map on the Shropshire's Great Outdoors website.  There is also information on the website about Rights of Way across Shropshire.

For more information about routes in Shropshire's Country Parks and Heritage Sites that are suitable for riding, please follow the link to visit the Country Parks and Sites webpage and search for ‘Promoted Horse Rides’.

For information about permissive routes, please follow the link to the Natural England website.
