Riding can be on of the most enjoyable ways of seeing our part of Exmoor and the coast. We have a selection of local riding stables who offer horses and ponies to suit all ages and experience – from a gentle one hour trek to longer rides for the more experienced rider. In high season, you may well have to book your ride a few days in-advance.
If you have never ridden before, try an easy one-hour trek first. The chances are you will discover muscles you never knew existed but the experience may tempt you to improve your riding with further lessons. Like any sport, the more competent you become, the more you enjoy it.
Once booked, please ensure you honour the booking or, at least, telephone the evening before to cancel. Otherwise, horses have been unnecessarily groomed and tacked up ready for you. Wear sensible clothing and walking shoes or wellington boots. Always make a note of the time of the ride and arrange to be there a few minutes early in order to be fitted with a riding hat and matched with a suitable horse or pony.
