The Northern Chaser cross country course (http://www.ukriders.co.uk/Northern_Chasers) is on the Swinton Estate at Ruskill Bank Farm, 2 miles from the hotel. The fifty jump course passes through scenic farm and woodland with wonderful views across Wensleydale. At each jump there is a variety of heights, enabling riders at every level of experience to complete the course. The maximum height of each jump is 3′ 6″.
Cost per day per horse is £20 which entitles you to ride the course as many times as you like.
