I have just returned from a couple of days staying with Lynn and Nigel at their B and B with daily rides. I could not fault their welcome and hospitality throughout. The food and accommodation was excellent and the rides outstanding. I would recommend this to anyone whether experienced or a beginner.

After a warm welcome from Lynn, Nigel and of course Harry the Boxer, I was treated to a weekend of confidence-building riding on Blue and Tonto. The Devon countryside is beautiful and so makes for interesting rides - ups and downs, through fords, along valleys. As someone fairly new to riding, Lynn was encouraging and even helped me take a...

A last-minute decision for a long, horsey weekend, and what a treat. I have been riding on and off for many years but am not as confident as I used to be. Nothing to worry about as the horses were beautifully behaved: forward yet safe, and my horse Freddy (Clydesdale X, 17hh) was my dream horse. The horses were a... More

Today I had the pleasure of meeting Lynn, who clearly is passionate about horses and making people's riding holidays an experience to remember. Matty, my trusty steed for the day was everything Lynn said he would be. He was such a cheeky chap and made my ride exciting and one to remember. Drinking in the view on horseback with great...

I first visited Lower Ford by way of a group on voucher given as a gift. Fabulous horses, friendly staff & incredible scenery made for a brilliant experience. I can't thank Lynn enough for making me feel welcome & comfortable after 12 years out of the saddle. My second visit was even better & I can't wait to return!
