Horse riding at Harcombe

Harcombe offers a waymarked network of riding trails for off-road riding.

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

Haldon4Horses is a group of local riders who enjoy hacking through Haldon Forest and Harcombe Woods. They work with us 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.
