This ride goes either towards Georgeham before ascending up to a bridleway that overlooks Braunton and Saunton Sands on one side and Croyde and Putsborough on the other with spectacular views. Or we go along the coast path overlooking Putsborough beach before dropping down into the dunes. We do not go onto the beach.
Recommended for experienced riders ONLY
Please note if we find your ability doesn’t meet the requirements during the dunes ride we will not make it to the dunes in time and the ride will turn back at some point along the coast path.
2 hour beach hack- £70pp or £100 for private
Please note this ride is NOT available Mid July through August.
Our beach ride involves going through the valley to assess your riding ability in trot and canter before dropping down onto Putsborough beach.
There’s several opportunities to have a trot and canter along the 3 mile stretch of beach plus have a paddle in the sea if it’s not too rough.
This is NOT a gallop ride, however you must be fit and riding on a regular basis to cope with this type of ride.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS STRICTLY FOR EXPERIENCED RIDERS ONLY. MINIMUM AGE 14YRS.
If when assessed along the canter track your ability is not suitable for the beach we will go along the coast path instead and will not go on to the beach.
