Lakeside Riding Centre

About Us

Nestled in beautiful North Norfolk, Lakeside Riding Centre offers unique and thrilling off-road riding through fields, woodland and tracks at the 5000 acre, Worstead Estate, North Walsham.

Whilst we specialize in hacks (riding through the countryside) for the intermediate and more experienced rider, we do warmly welcome beginners. We also offer escorted riding in relaxed atmosphere for those riders for whom this is more appropriate.

So whether you are a beginner seeking to hop into the saddle for the first time or a more advanced rider seeking a thrilling canter across open countryside, you can trust that Lakeside Riding Centre can offer you a safe and exciting experience.

A short riding assessment is required by all new riders to Lakeside RC. Current weight limit 12.7 stone / 80kg.


Please read our FAQS and Terms and Conditions pages before booking.
