We rode with them a couple of years ago (actually September 2012). Drove all the way across the country in order to see the Exmoor ponies in the wild and to have gallop on Woolacombe beach. Achieved both, the former in heavy fog which added a bit of drama to the atmosphere but also meant we got lost briefly. Lots... More

We took our kids here, from 2 years to 11 and I rode too which I haven't done for nearly 10 years. The staff were attentive and friendly, working hard to find correctly fitting headgear and boots for all our party and organising ponies and horses. I was impressed with the way the staff dealt with the little ones teaching... More

I first came here when I was 8, never rode a horse before but I always had so much fun. Now 18 and I still can't get enough when I come on holiday! Such lovely views,... More

We both enjoyed our time here our horses 'Storm' and 'Munchie' were lovely and well behaved. The staff who came on the ride kept asking through out the ride how we were. Would like to thank the...

Went for a lovely beach ride on 3rd August in the evening. Lovely friendly team and gorgeous horses. Was very lucky to meet 'Bullseye' who was an absolute star and very confidence giving. Will definitely be going again and would like to thank all the staff for such a great experience!

Thoroughly enjoyed the beach ride with Brian and Julie. Horses and guides were excellent, and the long gallops on the beach were fantastic. Would recommend to anybody looking for a great beach ride, will definitely be back.

We booked for our 2 teenage daughters to go riding whilst we were staying in Ilfracombe at Easter. The people at the stables were very accommodating. They took the girls out on a ride with several other horses (and the old dog). The girls really enjoyed themselves.

Went to Devon on holiday and booked here for 2 quad biking and 2 pony trekking. Enjoyable visit until we discovered the pony trekkers had both caught headlice from the borrowed helmets. Although we were not blaming the centre as they were obviously left behind by previous users of the helmets this could have been prevented by providing disposable caps... More

I am really happy you enjoyed your horse riding with us. I am sorry that you had a problem with headlice. We do spray our hats on a daily basis to stop headlice and other bugs. We are unfortunately unable to provide disposable caps as they alter the fit and safety of the riding hat in the event of a... More
