Horse Riding at Delamere Forest

There is path upon path of beautiful woodland to ride at Delamere Forest.

We welcome horse riders to come and explore the forest but as an extremely busy site there are a few things you should know. As a popular site for walking, mountain biking and dog walking, please refrain from riding in the busier areas of the woodland (around the main visitor centre area) and make sure you avoid any designated cycle trails. The best time to visit us with your horse is during term time or before 10am and after 5pm on weekends and school holidays.

If you are bringing a horse box to Delamere the best place to park is at Whitefield car park, where it is quieter. There is plenty of room to load and unload your horse, and from here you are already on the Delamere Loop

No permit is needed to ride at Delamere Forest. 

For more information on our facilities, opening times and contact details, please see our visitor information.

Is this activity for you?
The shared trails are made up of a mixture of forest road and off road tracks.
We recommend you park at Whitefield Car Park, located off the B5152. This car park is pay and display. There are also larger vehicle spaces in the main car park, however these aren’t exclusively for horse boxes.
