East Midlands Horse Membership

Many of our forests and woodlands are available to explore and enjoy on horseback. Riding in the forests is by permit (membership) only. A horse riding membership can be purchased here.

Please take note of the following information specific to this membership. For your safety, please keep off the forest walks and mountain bike trails and observe all operational signage and diversions when in place.

We host events throughout the year at many of our sites, so please call or email before boxing up to check when it is best to ride.

Horse riding at Sherwood Pines:

When horse riding at Sherwood Pines, parking is available in the outer main car parks where it is easier to unload and mount up. If these are closed during quieter times, please use a corner of the main car park. Sherwood Pines is a busy site used by many and additional advice on riding can be obtained on request.

For details of walking and mountain bike trails at Sherwood Pines please ask for a guide from Guest Services on your arrival. These will clearly indicate the routes where you should not ride your horse.

Other quieter woodlands where riding by permit is allowed and included in the cost of your Membership are:

  • Haywood Oaks
  • Wharncliffe Woods (at Grenoside, Sheffield)
  • Farley and Bottom Moor (Matlock, Derbyshire)

Facilities at each site vary and further information is available by contacting central.district@forestryengland.uk.
