During term time (September till May) the ponies trek at Swanston. These treks run at the weekends only, although if you would like to trek at another time please contact us and we will try to accommodate you. You will be asked to meet your trek leader at the field, which you can travel to either by car or by bus (see our Find Us page for details).
Please Note: Bookings for treks open 3 weeks prior to the trekking date and close 24 hours before the trek’s start time. With our new automated booking system, we cannot yet block bookings made within 24 hours of the trek starting – however, these will not be honoured, and we will do our best to make people aware of this in the event of bookings made after the deadline.
To book treks, please visit our shop!
Weight limit: please note that due to the size of our ponies we have a strict weight limit of 70 kg (154 lb). Please provide an accurate weight including clothing, helmet, and boots (everything you will be wearing while riding), so we can match you with a suitable steed. We reserve the right to verify your weight and cancel your trek if we do not have a suitable pony for you. Please also note that our reservoir treks have a reduced weight limit of 67 kg (148 lb).
Please also note that while we try to avoid cancelling treks wherever possible, we do reserve the right to do so, for example due to unforeseen weather events, pony illness/injury, or incorrectly reported trekker age, weight, or ability. We endeavour to give as much notice as possible in the rare instances where we have to cancel. In these instances, we cannot take responsibility for travel costs incurred should you have already travelled to, or started travelling to our location.
