Welcome to our website!


Shelley’s riding school is a small and friendly yard situated on the edge of Braunton, within easy reach of Barnstaple and Ilfracombe. This location provides the riding school with fantastic long country tracks for those longer canters and some very scenic hacking.

All standards and ages above 3 years old are welcome from complete beginners to those who have a life-time of experience with horses. The riding school has a selection of well mannered horses and ponies to suit all abilities, which are always schooled to a high standard for those riders wishing to expand their knowledge, with qualified tuition always available and all rides are escorted.

The riding school has a full size 20M x 40M arena, which has proven very popular with the regulars. The all weather surface means lessons can carry on throughout the winter months and with the flood lights, lessons on those darker evenings are not a problem.

As well as lessons and hacks there is always variety of different activities available in half terms and school holidays, including pony days, discounted hacks, jumping and dressage training activities and mini in house competitions.

Please note we have a 15 stone weight limit and new riders will be weighed on arrival.

The top of your shoulders must be covered when riding so no sleeveless shirts / tops are to be worn.
