I'm an experienced rider and have always wanted to ride across the beach at Woolacombe. I booked in advance and when I arrived was given a warm welcome by the riding school manager. I was put on a nice well mannered horse and given a few minutes to ride him in the arena. I was then taken out across the... More

I always wanted to ride on the beach and it was even better than I thought it would be. You get to have a horsey paddle and a bit of a gallop. Everyone at the stables is friendly and helpful, they moved the time of my ride to make sure I could have a good go on the beach. I... More

Had a lesson here while holidaying in Woolacombe. The instructor, Teresa, was very helpful and friendly. Great ride with stunning views. I would highly recommend using Woolacombe Riding Stables!

Right from the off we were disappointed with customer service. The party was mixed and as soon as it was known there were men only there abilities were questioned - within 30 seconds of mounting and wandering around a lunging arena on their school horses we were told as a group that some members were not of the ability to...

having had lessons for over 3 years I found there attitude disgusting and rude to other stables training methods and we're basically saying that my instructor back home wasn't teaching me right. there services seem to be targeting novice riders I have looked through the excellent comment and it seems to be that the people who have put exerlent are...

I took my two daughters (14 and 21!) for their first ever ride here while on holiday. The staff, right from the man on reception to the girls who led the horses, were lovely and extremely pleasant. They even let us leave the car in the car park and walk into Woolacombe after the ride as they weren't too busy... More

Myself and my sister went on one of the beach rides in July. They matched our horses very well, with myself being changed to different one from my original allocation but ended up riding a lovely horse called Jimmy who I fell in love with. For my first beach ride it was a absolutely fabulous! Was a fantastic ride with... More

Everyone really looked after my daughter who had a great time and did a lot of riding each day and learnt a lot. My hacks were fantastic, especially the beach ride, really good fun on safe,... More
