We prefer riders to be able to walk, trot and canter.

We are situated within the grounds of Exmoor Owl & Hawk Centre, just one mile from Porlock, and five miles west of Minehead.   We have access to hundreds of miles of off-road riding through woodland and over moorland, with spectacular views to the sea and across the moor to Devon and Cornwall.  Some of the best riding countryside in the world!

OUR MOST COMMON CUSTOMER REVIEW - 'Wow, that is the best ride I have ever had!'

We have six lovely, well trained, forward going horses, who enjoy the beautiful countryside with hacking and trail riding as much as we do!  We ride over the National Trust, Holnicote Estate, over 12,000 acres of unspoilt Exmoor.  Indeed much of our riding countryside was created 150 years ago as a private riding estate - this is our playground!

We are open for riding throughout the year for riders with some horse riding experience, and we do ask that our riders can control a horse at walk, rising trot and canter.  Novices would be offered a short walking ride of up to one and a half hour duration.  We can now take experienced teenagers on our smaller horses.  ( We regret we are unable to offer rides for novice riders during the winter months)

We ride bitless, treeless and barefoot.  If you are thinking of a more natural kind of riding then come and ride our lovely horses.

We canter across moorland tracks and along wide woodland rides designed for riding, leaving from our farm into the woods opposite.  Perfect for trail riding on holiday.  Our rides are tailored to your needs and ability, usually without other riders, with no long line of horses and ponies and mixed abilities and no young children.

Why not bring a small group of friends for some of the best riding in your life, and stay in our B&B Farmhouse.

LICENSED BY WEST SOMERSET COUNCIL. VETERINARY INSPECTORS' COMMENTS:

I always like coming here - I always learn something new, and you have probably the best horses I have seen in a riding establishment.



20 March 2014

Dear Cathy,
I am writing to thank you for such an brilliant ride on the 10th March.   The route we took up through the woods and streams was excellent riding  and  then to get out onto the open moor with views over most of Somerset and to  see Wales out over the sea was the best ride ever.  I can vouch for Dandy being a tall, handsome, silver-haired gentleman in every way.  I have never ridden a smoother horse.  Any ditches or hummocks he just glided over.  I love the way your horses seem so relaxed and happy in your horse-centredway they are treated.  Riding barefoot and bitless was a revelation to meand I can hardly wait to come back up to Exmoor to ride with you again. 

Yours Enthusiastically.

Sue Moss
