There are a number of trekking centres in the Peak District where you can ride out and get to see some amazing countryside from the bridlepaths. The nearest one to Biggin Grange is Tissington Trekking Centre in the picturesque village of Tissington and they have a good range of well-mannered horses suitable for all levels of experience.
Uttoxeter Racecourse is well worth a visit if you enjoy horse racing. There are 24 meetings throughout the year with National Hunt racing in the winter and summer jumping throughout the wamer months.
Just up the road at Pikehall grass harness racing takes place twice a year. Competitors come from all over England and Ireland and after being introduced to the area nearly 20 years ago it commands a huge following and although very different to horse racing it it very exciting to watch.
