The beach ride is for the more experienced rider, it includes walk, trot, canter and gallop. Escorts always ride. Spectacular scenery with a varied ride across open fields, valleys and hills overlooking Woolacombe Beach. Pupils receive instruction and a ride in the morning and after lunch a further 1 hour ride, as well as meeting all the horses and ponies, grooming, tacking up etc. Our highest priority is the safety of all.  We assess all riders on our rides especially the beach ride, when some riders may lose their confidence or certain situations arise

Woolacombe Riding Stables nestles in the valley of Woolacombe. We are a British Horse Society and Pony Club approved equestrian centre. We were the first Riding stables in North Devon to become Clubmark accredited. Apart from the staff having their BHS qualifications, all full time staff have emergency first aid and child protection certificates.

We enjoy teaching and introducing adults and children to the joys of horse riding. All our pupils are encouraged to complete their Pony Club and British Horse Society achievement certificates in stable management and horse riding.

The stables are situated at Eastacott Farm and visitors can ride over 200 acres of countryside as well as additional rides across the sand dunes at Woolacombe and over the 3 mile long stretch of golden sandy beach.

Woolacombe beach in North Devon has been named by travellers as the UK's best beach for both 2015 & 2016. Fourth in Europe and 14th in the World

Our three-mile long stretch of golden sand retained the top spot in a list based on TripAdvisor UK reviews and ratings.

BHS (British Horse Society) and Pony Club approved; Woolacombe Riding Stables are an equestrian centre offering lessons for over 4s. We're great with absolute beginners so there's nothing to fear, and should they take to it well and stick with the training pupils are encouraged to complete their Pony Club and British Horse Society achievement certificates, in both stable management and horse riding. This then can be the starting point for a lifelong interest or even a career!

Facilities here include a proper lunging arena and a full size 20m x 40m outdoor arena ideal for instructing in flat work and jumping. Obviously the kids start off very simply but it's good to know the features are available for when they start to develop the necessary skills to use them!
