Day One

Today you will arrive in Devon’s beautiful countryside, with rolling hills and forests, and miles of off-road riding available. Settle into your accommodation early in the afternoon and then make your way to the stables to meet the staff and horses. The stables are immaculate, the staff friendly and professional, and there is a tremendous range of horses suitable for all abilities from novice to expert. You will have a brief assessment to make sure that you and your horse are well matched followed by a lesson. After the ride you can relax at your spa hotel or explore the nearby seaside villages.

Day Two

This morning after a good night's sleep and breakfast, take the short drive back to the stables where you will be reunited with your horse for a second lesson. The stables are located right next to hundreds of acres of hills and woodland with safe off road riding on excellent bridle paths. In the afternoon you will hack out. Then you are free again to enjoy the area, perhaps ia walk on the beach or back to the hotel for a swim in the pool.
