Hacking from Limebrook



Limebrook Farm Livery Yard is situated in a beautiful part of Essex.  Quiet country lanes and woods are within easy reach of the stables.  We have wonderful hacking for horseback riding around Limebrook.  There are so many routes to ride that when we were a riding school even our instructors have been known to get lost!  (Actually that only happened once but it makes a good tale!)

A selection of the most popular hacks can be found by clicking on the links below.  Thanks to Stuart and Julie for describing some of the most popular hacks can be found by following the links on this page, and of course, many thanks to Bertie and Snoopy for sharing their favourite rides with us.

Some hacks mean you have to cross the busy A414, but people are usually on hand  to see you safely across the road and back again

Being able to hack through the countryside is one of the pleasures of owning your own horse, but it is vital to take safety precautions to make sure you both keep safe.  Make sure someone knows where you are going, your rough route and expected return time.  Be sure also to take mobile phone with you. 

There is nothing quite like seeing the beautiful Essex countryside on horseback!

The hacks shown last from between 1 hour to 4 hours!
Peacefully plodding down quiet lanes, through woods and along fields - Limebrook is a great centre for hacking.
