Horse Riding at Hicks Lodge

We welcome horses and riders at Hicks Lodge. We have a permissive route which is open throughout the spring and summer months and takes you through a large part of the Forest.

You will be able to re-fuel at the café whilst making use of our purpose built horse corral with mounting block and parking is easy in the dedicated horse-box car park.

The permissive horse route is open during spring and summer. The loop around the lake is a public bridleway and links to Donisthorpe and Moira public bridleways.
