Very friendly and enjoyable experience.
Aug 2021
We booked a 'half and half' lesson for our 10 yr old daughter as a surprise. Half an hour in the arena and half an hour in the fields. To say that she loved it would be an understatement! It was a week ago now and she hasn't stopped talking about it yet!
All the staff were friendly and encouraging, especially when they could see she was feeling a little nervous. The horses seemed really well cared for. Caroline (I think?) was a really bubbly instructor and she put our daughter at ease straight away. Gave lots of praise when she did something well, but was also happy to give clear and firm instructions to keep her safe. A great teacher.
The only negative - the road down to the stables is a little hairy.... but you quickly come to accept that in North Devon!

1/2 hour ride out was awesome
Aug 2021 • Friends
What can I say, kids had an awesome time. My eldest (11) had ridden twice before but my youngest (6) hadn’t. Had to book in advance which is no issue as I like to plan ahead things like this. Both kids loved their rides out and had a little trot at the end. The lady that dealt with us in the office, got our horses, explained everything and lead my son on the walk out was awesome. Super friendly and amazing with both kids. They were clearly busy but still took the time to make our ride brilliant. We will be booking again when we visit Woolacombe, might even book a beach ride for me. Thank you

Perfect morning for my daughter
Jul 2021
A treat for my youngest daughter, who loved the whole experience and was well looked after by the staff there. Half hour guidance indoors then out for a ride around the field. This could prove very expensive as she has talked bout this ever since and has gone on another ride at a local stables!

Abusive staff
Oct 2020
further to my review of my horrible experience here being abused by the older man at this location in October 2019, I'm sick that this place is STILL getting away with abusing people, and NOTHING is done about it. It makes a mockery of the British Horse Society actually. Disgraceful, I am still traumatized by how I was treated. If they were not at the picturesque location they are, they would NOT be in business AT ALL.

Beach ride
Aug 2021 • Friends
Really fantastic beach ride. I went twice during my stay and well worth every penny. I rode out with Megan both times such a lovely friendly rider. We were all assessed to ensure that we were as capable, as we had said. I rode the lovely Morley both times. Such a lovely forward going horse. The beach ride was everything it promised, lots of canters, paddling in the sea and stunning scenery. Can't wait to visit again.

Very rude staff
Jul 2021 • Family
Not at all welcoming, complaining that everyone was late, made to feel that we caused it, we arrived before time. Rode over the countryside beautiful views but let down with the experience from the staff. Quite a few times mocked on our riding abilities, belittled in front of other riders and sarcastic marks. Some of the horses were agitated hard to handle. Even the experienced riders found the horses hard to ride.
Been to many other stables and this was the worst. I can’t believe the stables has been approved by BHS. Awful.

Fabulous hack
Jul 2021 • Family
I booked my 13 year old experienced daughter a 1.5 hour ride across the fields above the riding school.

We were met by a lovely friendly young lady who immediately discussed my daughters preferences for horses and agreed on the perfect horse for her. Quick wizz around the small menage and then off she went with two guides and another client.

Picked her up 1.5 hours later with the biggest grin on her face and stating the best ride she had ever had. Galloping across the fields above Woolacombe, with fab sea views.

Can't recommend it enough.

Please note the lane that leads down to the stables is narrow and steep, for a large 4x4.
