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

A variety of Trust Breath Energy Connection Workshops and Self Selection with Herbs available.

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!

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 the more experienced.
