About Hole Farm
Hole Farm Trekking Centre is part of Woodgate Valley Country Park.
Riders can go on a led ride through the valley, in a safe, traffic-free environment. It’s a fantastic opportunity for children and adults to meet, touch and ride a pony.
Hole Farm is a British Horse Society (BHS) approved riding centre.
Our horses and ponies
The 30 ponies and horses that live at the centre are made up from a variety of breeds native to Britain, known as "mountain & moorland" or "cob types". They are renowned for their excellent temperaments, hardiness, durability and a laid back attitude to their work. This makes them ideal for learning to ride and handle.
The 65 acres of grazing pasture provides the ideal habitat offering natural shelter with high hedges and trees. Their winter hay supply is made by the Ranger Service and the ponies thrive.
Trekking through over 400 acres of Country Park matches their "lifestyle" which they are very happy to share with their riders.
