A very friendly place felt very welcome, lots of humour, being on a horse after a few years absence, and being asked to canter round the area, was interesting, but the horses knew the ropes. Then a great hour and half hack out, lovely countryside. Thank you, will be back.

We have been to these stables several times and the children have always loved their lessons. It is a well managed business set in a beautiful location and the cafe even makes a decent coffee while you are waiting. Highly recommended.

A friend kindly introduced me to this lovely cafe. It sits at the back of the riding school. We sat near the wood burner in an amazing oak building watching a riding lesson eating tasty panini. I had Brie bacon and cranberry which came with a side salad and I had a latte. All was lovely and I will be... More

My husband, myself and our three children (aged 10, 7 & 4) had an amazing hack in the beautiful countryside in Budleigh Salterton. Highly recommend, as a family outing on holiday, good value, lovely welcome and staff with equipment to borrow if required.

Visited here for an holiday birthday hack which was enjoyed by all. £110 for a semi private 1.5 hr hack for one adult and two children so a little pricey. The first little while was spent in the arena but then out and all of it was enjoyed

Best riding lessons I have had since I started riding else where a year ago! The instructors are so informative and in the month I have been going, I feel I am learning a lot more, than I was at my previous riding centre!

Great riding school, the instructors have really developed my confidence through both lessons and hacking out. Lovely horses, great instructors. I ride here most weeks now.
