The Masham Riding and Treking Centre is adjacent to Swinton Park and at the heart of the Estate. The centre provides trekking and basic riding lessons in an outdoor arena. There are 18 horses and ponies of which most are pure bred highlands, but we also have Welsh mountain ponies and a Shire horse, all of which have a friendly disposition. The riding centre deals with all levels of riding skill and all ages of rider. It is also home to the Dykes Hill Highland Pony Stud with a prize winning lineage of over 30 years.
