Well Organised, great stables, lovely horses and perfect location.
Jul 2021 • Family
Well organised and very accommodating, My 9 year old ‘novice’ rider went on a 1.5 hour ride onto the moors. She had a lovely time! Horses were fab and stables well kept and cared for. Would highly recommend to all and hope we can come back soon.

An extremely enjoyable experience!
Jun 2021 • Family
Fantastic friendly staff, lovely horses, beautiful location. Great to ride out over Exmoor. My daughter and I had the most wonderful experience and thoroughly enjoyed our ride with the lovely people at West Anstey Farm. Would highly recommend booking here, we were made to feel extremely welcome and comfortable, the horses were perfect for us and the ride was fantastic out over Exmoor. Great experience! Many thanks, we'll be back!

Fun weekend ride over beautiful Exmoor
Feb 2020
Went to West Anstey with my sister last weekend. Earl was great and organised a fab hack out over Exmoor (1hr30), plenty of cantering, horses that you can actually ride instead of just trek ponies, and led fabulously by Freddie! Thank you so much!

They have riding hats, gloves and boots that you can borrow if needed.

So helpful and friendly
Sep 2019
Having not ridden for a few years, I decided I'd like to have a go for an hour as the weather was glorious. The owner was so helpful and encouraging, and made sure I had the correct hat size and even boots as my walking boots and trainers weren't suitable.
Horses are obviously well looked after, and we're happy to be cuddled by a total stranger.
I was taken up on the moors by a lovely guide called Freddie, who was very attentive and made sure I was completely happy trotting before we ventured into cantering. And what a ride. Glorious views over Exmoor, and even spotted some wild ponies.
I only did an hour as I hadn't ridden for a while, but I Wish I'd gone earlier in the week so I could go again! I had such a wonderful time.
Highly recommended.

Amazing ride on Exmoor
Aug 2019 • Friends
We have been several times with friends of different abilities and were given such wonderful calm horses and we were all looked after perfectly by the staff. So friendly we all felt at ease straight away. What amazing views across the moors. Would definitely recommend.

A great experience riding on Exmoor. Children were welcomed and given confidence as new riders. Friendly staff, genuinely wanting us to enjoy our horses and ride.

EXCELLENT RIDE OVER EXMOOR, GREAT VALUE, 100% RECOMMENDED
Jul 2019 • Couples
As a birthday treat for my daughter, (in her 20s) and as her first trecking experience after a few riding lessons, I booked us in to West Anstey stables.
Despite my problematic joints, I too decided to ride as well.
The staff in the stables were so kind and patient, and ensured we were put on horses, with a gentle nature. Our guide Fred was entertaining and patient and didn’t push us beyond our capabilities. There was only the three of us riding, which was amazing, as we had riding tuition on our travels!
The views on the moors was stunning and there was plenty of exmoor ponies and deer to see on route.
Note to other riders...
Don’t wear a red ruck sack, the horses don’t like it!
Don’t wear snake patterned boots, the horse kept nibbling at it, we think he thought it was real!
Wear insect repellent, the horse flies can be bothersome!
Thank you to all for a brilliant experience

Horse riding over exmoor
Sep 2018 • Family
Went with my step daughter aged 11 who has ridden before. I’m a complete novice and earl and his staff were fab with both of us. They paired us up with suitable staff as it is one to one and the horses were suited to our abilities. Had a fab ride over Exmoor and even managed to trot. Would recommend to all ages and abilities. Well done Earl and staff
