The Londonderry family of Mount Stewart always had horses and ponies and they rode through the grounds at Mount Stewart on trails that were made for just that purpose. The National Trust is working to recover and renovate access to the estate by uncovering and renovating existing paths. In 2017 we had access to approximately 3 miles of trail, and if the weather is dry enough, in 2018 we will hopefully have access to an additional 2 or 3 miles.

Pre-booking is essential with a maximum attendance number of 40 and pre-organised departure times.  There is a strict code of conduct for this event, which is below.

Please complete the booking form with the required information and return to Susan Spratt with payment of £15 per horse and rider. You may pay by TicketSource or Paypal to Susan Spratt.
