Horse riding around Plymouth is one of the best things you could ever do! From country paths to marvellous oak woodlands, there is so much to explore! Whether you have your own horses or you wish to go to an equestrian and use their horses, you can be sure, it will be a time to remember.
Have your own horse?
There are so many different routes you can take around Plymouth and its surrounding areas. Depending on what you are looking for, there are 100s you can try. Nearly every shop in Plymouth will have leaflets on all of the different routes you can take.
When horse riding around Plymouth, it is best to visit an equestrian beforehand if you’re unsure of what routes to take! An equestrian will show you all of the best routes that they feel you are looking for but as the horse riding routes around Plymouth are well signposted, you may just feel like doing it yourself and finding your own favourite route.
What equestrian is best?
In my opinion, Wembury Bay Riding School is one of the best riding schools there is in Plymouth. Offering a huge range of gorgeous horses that are unbelievably well looked after, they offer a yard that sits in the middle of 50 acres of countryside and woodland.
Wembury Bay Riding School overlooks the stunning Atlantic Ocean in the South West with mouth dropping views of the famous Eddystone lighthouse, Rame head and also Mewstone! So the riding school alone is a beautiful experience.
As this riding school is open all year around, whenever you visit Plymouth, you can go horse riding and you can experience it in all weather! Offering routes including bridal paths, woodlands or a coastal path, you can really take in that fresh air while you gallop around with your horse.
