Exmoor Riding

Horse Riding, Riding Holidays, Trekking and Riding Stables, Riding Events on Exmoor in North Devon and West Somerset

The Exmoor National Park is the perfect place for riding - hacking, trekking or hunting.  Within the National Park boundaries are some 400 miles (600kms) of bridleways.
The Exmoor National Park Authority has a special responsibility to ensure that all bridleways within its boundary are open and useable and that every path is signed where it leaves or joins a public highway. The more popular bridleways are waymarked using the national colour code of blue.

Some Exmoor accommodation providers also provide some form of livery and some riders bring their own horses with them on holiday.

Horses can also be hired by the hour, day week etc.
