I hope you enjoy reading the below message from one of our fabulous providers in North Devon.
I hope you are all well and enjoying life and having fun with your riding. The summer was lovely here, the going perfect the sky clear so we had some wonderful views, great canters and leisurely picnics. I hope you all enjoyed your summer too. The horses all seemed to have fun with the better going and are now enjoying their time off. We are starting to look for a couple of new horses for next season so the older ones can do a bit less.
Next year we are trying something new to help keep costs down for you, make the riding a bit easier for horse and rider and give the riders time to do some sightseeing should they want to. Our holidays will consist of fifteen hours riding per week, full board with picnic lunch for six nights at just £695pp.
We have noticed that some of our guests have given up riding for various reasons, we are happy to take non riders and would love to see you again even if you aren’t riding. There are lots of things to do round here, from walking our fantastic coast paths, to swimming in the sea (if you are very brave.) There are stately homes to visit, cute villages, two interesting local zoos, wild woodland, the open beautiful open moorland, or you can just chill out with a good book. If you would like to have a short ride the horses are happy to oblige.
We are starting our popular special bargain breaks from the 18th March or 1st week of March if the weather is good to the last weekend of April. These breaks include two nights B&B one dinner one lunch and two days riding for three hours per day (weather permitting.) Other meals/longer stays by arrangement.
Amanda, Liz, Megan and I are still here but young Stef has left to do other things, she still pops up occasionally though. She has bought Kabrit our beautiful black arabian who she named Moss. He wasn’t really happy to carry people he didn’t know, so as he got on so well with Stef we thought it was better for him to be in a one to one relationship as it were.
I had a bit of a scare this year and had to have a tricky operation, luckily it all went well and I am now enjoying my recovery and can’t wait to get back in the saddle.
We look forward to meeting you all next year and hope you have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.
