Coloured Cob Equestrian Centre is situated at Bank House Farm, nestled in the small village of Creswell, Worksop.

Built in 1610, the property is steeped in history and is set within 35 acres of land, just off J30 of the M1 making them easily accessible from Derbyshire, Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire. They have a purpose built riding school, a wide range of horse riding lessons and fabulous hacking/trekking experiences, as well as a mini cross country course.

Set on a bridleway, Coloured Cob offers beginner pony trekking through to 4hr advanced treks into the beautiful Clumber Park Forest. The majority of the rides take visitors through the archaeological beauty spot of Creswell Crags, which is a limestone gorge, honeycombed with caves and dates back to the Ice Age.

Coloured Cob also offers a range of horse riding parties for children and adults, therapeutic horse riding for disabled people of all ages and much, much more.
