CountrySportsYorkshire offers visitors outstanding sporting experiences. If you’re new to field sports, there’s plenty of places where you can have a taster.

Clay Shooting

Clay shooting is available close to Bedale at the Marne Clay Shooting Club   Kids can also join in the fun and the Marne club even have a ‘Kids Shoot Free’ policy.

Warren Gill at Masham is another excellent facility to experience clay shooting, set in the stunning countryside of lower Wensleydale.

Horse Riding

There is no better place to have a canter than in Yorkshire, be it through one of the three National Parks or along the bridleways and routes specifically intended for the rider.  The choice of route is pretty much endless, and with miles of country roads, it is easy to travel between small hidden villages or along riverside trails.

Whether you’re an experienced rider with your own horse, or someone looking for their first experience of horse riding, Yorkshire has some of the UK’s most spectacular and most memorable places to explore.  Masham Riding Centre is located a few miles from Bedale and offers a great selection of activities.

For the more serious rider Richmond Equestrian Centre offers some fantastic facilities.  You can discover more about their events here.
