We have moved our well-known Doone Valley Trekking business to Caffyns, and founded the Exmoor Riding Centre here. We are proud to be the only coastal trekking centre on Exmoor, catering for all ages and abilities, from complete novices and beginners through to families and experienced, confident riders. We have many years experience of providing rides through the beautiful Exmoor countryside, moors and valleys. Our large stable of well-mannered, good quality horses includes tiny ponies for small children (5yrs and above) right up to large cobs.

At present, we offer:

A one hour ride around our 160 acres of fields, woods and valleys (the ride down through the woods to the stream and back is very popular). Suitable for complete beginners, novices and families; no roadwork.

A hour and a half ride through Croscombe down to Lee Abbey and along coastal bridleways. Suitable for more confident riders who can walk or walk/trot.

A two hour ride through Croscombe, past Lee Abbey to the Valley of the Rocks (which we can canter through) then down to Lynton before returning to Caffyns. Suitable for experienced riders.

A three hour ride walk/trotting on the coastal bridleways west towards Heddon via the Hunters Inn and then a canter back over fields. Suitable for experienced riders.

A whole day ride through some of the most stunning scenery for riders in North Devon, passing through the Woolhanger Estate, over the moor to Challacombe, lunch at a local pub (not included in price), then return via moors and fields to Caffyns. Five hours riding, one hour lunch. Suitable for experienced confident riders.

For those of you camping with us, riding can be arranged on the spot. If you are not staying with us, we ask that you call us to book your rides in advance. We gladly take large parties for riding, but again please book ahead.

For the rider, these provide safe passage through the beautiful woods, moors, hills and valleys of Exmoor, and of course there are sea views everywhere! And for those wanting an introduction to riding, or just a less adventurous ride, the 160 acres of Caffyns Farm itself provides everything from open fields, to wooded combes without having to leave our land!

All rides are escorted by staff who are experienced riders, and who will also take out children on horses on a lead rope for walks - perfect for first-timers who have never been on a horse before! Contact us for further details of rides.
