Exmoor is a truly great place for horse riding
And what better way to explore over 250 square miles of National Park than on horseback. Within Exmoor are some 400 miles of well-maintained bridleways with the more popular trails waymarked.
Local stables cater for novices, family groups as well as more experienced riders. Many have a selection of horses for different abilities and will offer the opportunity to ride with an experienced guide. Tuition is available for beginners, those who just want to improve and advanced lessons for the more accomplished rider. Many riders bring their own horses on holiday with them and some riding stables can provide suitable accommodation for both horse and rider.
Magnificent scenery, waterfalls, wooded glades, moors that go on and on, with some of the highest cliffs in England, all bathed in peace and tranquility. Whether you just want a quiet hack through woodlands hoping for a glimpse of the wild deer, or an exhilarating canter over the heather-clad open moorland with far reaching views the choice is yours, but you can be certain of one thing, Exmoor in North Devon is a very special place for riding.
Check out some of the fantastic horse riding stables close to Lynton & Lynmouth.
