It was announced today that Devon would be going into Tier 2 of the latest rulings after lockdown. The great news is that Brendon Manor Stables will be able to open from the above date.
North Devon has one of the lowest infection rates in the country and we want to keep it that way... The following rules for Brendon Manor Stables will be in place from December 2nd therefore.

*If you or one of your group is from a "Tier 3" area, sorry we cannot allow you to come riding with us at the moment.
*Group numbers are strictly caped at 4 people.
