Haldon Forest Park near Exeter includes a ten mile network of riding trails that make a great place to get in the saddle and escape from it all with your horse. This unspoilt forest is safe, quiet and scenic and it’s ideal for riders of all levels. As well as cycle paths, walking trails and family play areas, the park is also home to a picturesque riding trail that connects with the trails along Buller’s Hill too.
The trails include a stretch of a quarter of a mile for galloping, and the forest park is one of those special places that will leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed almost as soon as you discover it. Feel free to bring your dog along to the forest park too, but it’s important to stick to the designated riding trails. One of the nice things about riding the Harcombe Riding Trails is that they’re constantly worked on by Haldon4Horses, an enthusiastic group who dedicate their time to ensuring that access is easy, signs are clear and all other potential riding issues are kept at bay.
Parking won’t be a problem either, Harcombe Riding Trails include their own car park, and riders are welcome to make use of the Harcombe horse box park and access the trails nearby. This car park is free of charge, so please use this one instead of the main pay and display one at Haldon Gateway. Enjoy horse riding to the full at Haldon Forest Park.
