Stonetrail was established in 2008 by Alison Muir, who is a qualified Ride Leader and who has extensive experience of organising and running multi day trail rides of up to 100 miles. Alison's passion for long-distance riding began many years ago and through her involvement with Natural England and the British Horse Society she has played a key role in the development and promotion of riding routes in Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales. In 2012, Alison was honoured to be chosen to accompany Martin Clunes in his role as President of the British Horse Society to open The Pennine Bridleway, Englands latest national trail, a 130 mile long distance bridleway purpose made for horses, cyclists and walkers.
All the horses used by Stonetrail are owned by us and used exclusively for hacking and trail riding. They have become wonderful companions and friends and we cherish all of them. They receive the best standard of care and enjoy acres of grazing when they are not being ridden, living happily as a herd, in as natural conditions as possible. Some of our horses have been home bred and others have been bought as youngsters and brought on by us.
