You couldn’t ask for a better place to ride in the great outdoors than Shropshire
We are blessed with over 600 miles of byways and bridleways, crisscrossing their way through the stunning countryside.
There are a number of promoted long distance routes, such as the Jack Mytton Way, which can be tackled in sections, as well as many different circular routes of varying lengths taking in the tremendously varied countryside of Shropshire. Many of these can be linked to create your own routes, please use the interactive map to see how they connect and to see the other many Rights of Way across Shropshire. For routes in our Country Parks and Heritage Sites that are suitable for riding, please see our Country Parks and Sites page and search for ‘Promoted Horse Rides’. For permissive routes please go to the Natural England website.
Travelling through Shropshire there are far reaching views from the Clee Hills in the south, the Long Mynd and the Stiperstones. The rolling Betchcott Hills lead you to the quiet lanes of the Shropshire Plains and the panoramic views in the north, from the Nesscliffe and other north Shropshire hills.
