Devon Riding Holidays is a small family-run centre located just outside Stoodleigh, Tiverton, in the heart of pretty Mid Devon just south of the Exmoor National Park.
We are open for Holidays and hacks all year round but also take on rescue horses and ponies and work to rehabilitate them into a purposeful healthy life trekking in Devon, so far to date we have 4 in our herd horses, Claydon, Charlie, Mack and Blue.
Devon Riding Holidays can offer holidays or short breaks for all abilities with the flexibility to tailor a holiday designed specifically for you.
At our home Lower Ford Equestrian we we can offer you a mixture of lessons and treks, you can design your own programme, whilst our trail rides offer seasoned regular riders the excitement and challenge of riding through the beautiful surrounding countryside and stunning Exmoor National Park.
