Devenish Pitt Farm Riding School, Farway, Colyton, Devon

At Devenish Pitt Farm Riding School they do hacks and lessons in the glorious countryside of East Devon AONB, with all tuition from experienced instructors. If you’ve got a passion for all things horsey, book up with this family run business because this, we can tell you, is such an amazing thing to do when you’re staying nearby at your Stonehayes Farm Devon holiday cottage.

They have horses and ponies to suit all ages and abilities, though they do suggest that if you haven’t ridden before a part lesson is a good idea to give you the confidence needed to go out for a ride. The hack will reflect the experience you have, so you can have a quiet family ride or go a little faster if you and the instructors feel comfortable with it. Either way you’ll get to see truly beautiful countryside as you trek through fields and woods on the 260 acre farm, and across wide open common. Seeing it all on horseback has to be one of the best ways to take it all in because you feel more a part of it all – the immense fields, the vast skies, and the incredible far reaching views.

If you’ve got a little person on board who’s aged 7+ you can book up a fantastic treat for them – a half day at the stable. This includes an hours’ riding lesson and hack, and lots of informed learning about practical pony care and stable management. Next thing they’ll want is pony of their own…
