Horse Riding Holidays for Experienced Riders, and Returning Riders on Barefoot Horses over Exmoor National Park

Relaxation, Connection, Breath-Heart-Energy, Ride from your Heart

Our horses are trained through Trust and Respect and Breath Energy, and using herbal and holistic therapies

Our farm is a 15th century "Open-Hall Manor House" in the heart of the Exmoor National Park, with relaxation and a living environment at its core.

Born a horse, animal and countryside lover, I waited until my later years to realise my dream and follow my passion in living with, training and working with horses, who so closely mirror our own feelings of joys, loves, fears and insecurities.
Together we help one another through our two-way human equine relationship.

Everyone needs a horse in their life, even if only for a few days, to help you find who you are and where you are going.
Join us in your journey of well-being and reconnect with nature, the environment and yourself!


Our Exmoor Riding Holidays, based on the NT Holnicote Estate near Porlock, Minehead, in Somerset, England,  on the South West Coast Path, are unique and world renowned.  Our video shows one of our rides and the views around us.

Every day we ride over Exmoor National Park on barefoot horses, giving a confident comfortable ride for both horse and rider.  Our horses are trained with our own Gentle Horse and Rider techniques to soften and relax both horses and 'returning' riders as well as offering exciting canter rides for experienced riders. 

We also offer interactive workshops where you can connect with your horse, and unlock your potential by working in-hand and listening to the horse, learn relaxation through breath control with your horse, experience the amazing feeling of togetherness in 'join-up'!

Our other workshops explore the exciting and inspirational world of Equine Self Selection with essential oils and hedgerow herbs, or a joint Shiatsu workshop with our local professional Shiatsu practitioner AG Shiatsu.

We welcome Mother/Father and Daughter/Son riders aged 10 years +, with experience able to walk, trot and canter confidenctly over open ground.  We strongly recommend a forward canter seat to assist the back of the horse on our challenging hilly terrain.

Our Exmoor Riding Holiday is fully flexible, and allows you to choose when you wish to come, how long you wish to stay and select how many rides, or what other activities you would like to do.  We offer horse riding only, or in combination with B&B, Bird of Prey Activities, Childrens horse rides and Gentle Horse & Rider Workshops.
