Harcombe Horse Riding Trails

Harcombe is a short distance away from the main Haldon Forest Park car park. It offers a network of riding trails that include a quarter mile stretch for galloping.

Riders are welcome to bring their dogs, but please keep them under control, and please keep to the designated trails.

Haldon4Horses is a group of local riders who enjoy hacking through Haldon & Harcombe Woods. They work with the Forestry Commission on issues such as access into Harcombe, road signs, etc., as well as contributing towards the further development of Haldon for equestrian users. 

Do you have any concerns, ideas, or require information of where you can ride? Haldon4Horses would love to hear from you anitalpiper@googlemail.com, alanwscrombie@googlemail.com or deborahearcher@aol.com.
