About the Event

Holcombe Hoof fundraiser for Margaret Haes Riding Centre and The Sunnywood Project. 


We have two Holcombe Hoof events taking place from Margaret Haes Riding Centre:

  1. The Holcombe Hoof 10-mile Challenge 
  2. The Family Holcombe Hoof with accompanying horses to Peel Tower

The Holcombe Hoof 10-mile Challenge 

This is a a guided and marked 10 mile challenge hike loop starting at Margaret Haes Riding Centre, heading over stunning moorland towards Helmshore and looping back back to the riding centre which will provide you with incredible views across the valley. 

The Family Holcombe Hoof with accompanying horses to Peel Tower

A family-friendly 1.5 mile stroll with horses from the riding centre. We'll make our way to Peel Tower, admire the views before looping back for snacks.  

Holcombe Hoof is about completing a challenging distance with the camaraderie of other like-minded people around you, while raising valuable funds for Margaret Haes Riding Centre and The Sunnywood Project – there should be no desire to ‘beat’ anyone or break any records and our friendly guides and teams will be there to offer a supportive pep talk when required.
