Woolacombe Riding Stables

Spectacular scenery with a variety of rides across open fields, valleys and hills, sand dunes and Woolacombe beach.

Something for Everyone

The stables are open all year round. There is horse available for all abilities. All our rides are escorted and boots and hats are provided for free. We try to partner our visitors to a mount that suits their size, experience and ability. We have a collecting/lunging arena and an outdoor arena for instructing inflat work and jumping. We are sorry but children under the age of 4 years and adults over 15 stone in weight are not allowed to ride.
