Discover how to connect with your horse with us!

Free schooling, liberty work, calm and gentle leading,
horse agility, and wild agility.


At Exmoor Riding we aim to consider the horse first with all our riding and training.  To this end all our horses are barefoot, they are ridden with gentle bridles without a bit except during dressage work when a gentle snaffle is used, and using treeless saddles, where you can feel the movement of the muscles of the horse beneath and ride sypathetically to its movements.


 We also work with our horses in-hand with free-schooling,  horse agility and liberty work.   This is a great avenue to building connection with your horse, to stregthening weak musles, to assist in maintaining fitness, and establishing a partnership with the horse.  A horse responding well is a happy horse, who respects you, and wishes to be with you instead of running off or grazing at a distance on his own.  This is such an amazing feeling!

Horse Agility and Free Schooling has helped us through a painful stage, particularly with Papoose, in gaining his confidence, and gaining our own self confidence.  Paps now has a good connection with us, and trusts us (and we him) so much more than the previous years we worked with him, and we have a far greater understanding of each other.  We strongly recommend connection for anyone who has a problem with themselves and their horse.

If  you would like to join us on a workshop demonstration and working with our horses in the arena and fields, book into a half day session for an interactive and inspirational experience with us.  

Watch the videos below, and enjoy our short slide show of our horses enjoying their training sessions.  Or visit our You tube Exmoor riding channel and find the horse agility videos there.

Paps - with persistent time and patience Paps is mastering connection well as we both learn to move together.
