Want more of a riding challenge?
Between 4 and 5 & 1/2 adrenaline filled, push on style riding on beautiful Exmoor. We have a range of routes to follow to a range of pubs around the area. Seeing some fantastic views, some lovely long canters and the choice of having a beer or 2 half way round!
We sort out everything for you for the Pub Ride. Just bring yourself and enough money for drinks.
Because of the style of riding involved, this ride is not open to beginner riders. If you are novice rider or above you can book on one of our Pub Rides in 2 ways, we have advertised Pub Rides which we open all suitable riders, these are advertised throughout the year on our Facebook Page. The other way of doing it is getting yourself and 3 other friends together and booking a private Pub Ride on a date that suits you (subject to availablity). Both are the same price of just £85.00 per person, with a surcharge for groups less than 4 on private Pub Rides, please contact us for more details*.
Depending on the route and the pub we stop at, food will be made available. You are welcome to purchase additional food at the pubs but we would kindly ask you not to eat anything you have brought with you as all pubs have kindly allowed space for ourselves and the horses to stop there. Please also remember, although you are welcome to have an alcoholic drink, it is your responsibility to get yourself home safely and if we don't feel you are in a fit state to ride, you'll be walking the horse home! Needless to say, alcohol will not be provided or purchased by anyone under the age of 18. The average stop on one of our Pub Rides is between 45-60 minutes.
Ride for a full day on beautiful Exmoor, 5-6 hours in the saddle, bring a packed lunch or let our local pubs cater for you (dependent on route) and enjoy the views! Test yourself on some of the toughest terrain in the area. Can you handle our rocky paths and our sheer drops?! Test your riding skills and capabilities with our great team here at Brendon Manor.
You can cover mile upon mile with one of our Day Rides, seeing the most of Exmoor anyone can in one day. Our horses are able to get to many places that walkers and cyclists simply can't reach and you cover the distance in better time too.
Because of the style of riding involved, this ride is not open to beginners or novice riders. You must feel comfortable cantering in a group and in open spaces. You can book on one of our Day Rides in 2 ways, we have advertised Day Rides which we open to all suitable riders, these are advertised throughout the year on our Facebook Page, mainly in the Spring and the Autumn. The other way of doing it is getting yourself and 3 other friends together and booking a private Day Ride on a date that suits you (subject to availablity). Both are the same price of just £100.00 per person, with a surcharge for groups less than 4 on private Day Rides please contact us for more details*.
We may ask you to bring food with you on our Day Rides, this means we can cover areas which are not subject to being near a pub or restaurant so you get to see wild Exmoor at its best. We would suggest you bring food in a small ruck sack, please do not use full back ruck sacks when riding as these can bounce around and hit our horses back. Our guides may have space in their ruck sacks for small boxes of food, but maybe consider one of you carries the food in your group, with the others using their bags for jackets or water. Please consider whatever you take, you'll be carrying it all day. You are welcome to bring alcohol for your own consumption, but please remember it is your responsibility to get yourself home safely and if we don't feel you are in a fit state to ride, you'll be walking the horse home! We would also ask that all litter is put into your rucksack and taken home with you.
