With over 500 kilometers of bridleways on Exmoor, every horse owner’s dream of trail riding can come alive. In a new leaflet launched this month by a group of local guest providers, the exciting prospect of being able to ride the recently established, unbroken trail, from Nether Stowey in the Quantock Hills in Somerset to Exford, the heart of Exmoor and into Devon, is introduced.

The 33-mile Coleridge Bridleway connects the Quantock Hills to the vast expanse of Exmoor where there are over 300 miles of permitted bridleways to explore with bed and breakfast stops for you and your horse at some of the areas most picturesque locations.

This handy leaflet lists thirteen bed and breakfast providers on Exmoor and the Quantock Hills. It also shows their location on a map so that pre-planning a circular or long ride is made easy. ‘Hitching up’ your horse at each stop is in fenced fields and paddocks, with some providers offering stabling too. Pre-booking with all accommodations is essential.
