Woolacombe Riding Stables

Instruction & Beach Rides

Woolacombe Riding Stables nestles in the valley of Woolacombe.  We are the 1st Riding stables to become Clubmark accredited in North Devon. 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.  Situated at Eastacott Farm where visitors can ride over 200 acres of countryside, we also specialise in beach rides for experienced riders, we are the only riding stable Parkin Estates has licensed to ride the length of Woolacombe beach.

We are 380 meter walk from the village of Woolacombe via a public footpath or a 5 minute drive by car. The Stables has a collecting/lunging arena and a full size 20m x 40m outdoor arena for instructing in flat work and jumping. With a choice from first ponies to competition horses, we try to partner our visitors to a mount that suits their size, experience and ability.

We are open all year round, all our rides are escorted with boots and hats provided free. We are sorry but children under the age of 4 years and adults over 16 stone in weight are not allowed to ride.
