Efford Down Stables deliver a unique riding experience in that the Pony Trekking offered is centred on their own 100 acre farm. This includes access to the immediate and beautiful “Efford Down” area. Not only are visitors able to ride in safety, but every trek offers some fantastic views along the North Cornwall coastline and the surrounding countryside. As each Trek is led by an experienced member of the team, the ride can relax into enjoying the stunning scenery from an equine view-point, which offers a wholly different approach to enjoying the area. The rides offered cater for all riding levels whether novice or experienced and will include some walking and trotting. There is also the option to canter in some of the fields, for those who are confident in riding. The treks are available to younger children who can be led on a lead-rein, but they must be over five years old. The only other noted limit is that adults must weigh less than 17 stone and be under the age of 68. The Stables offer from a selection of fit, loved and well cared for horses and ponies. There are a whole range of sizes to choose from, including a small Shetland who is a diminutive 10hh, right up to a huge shire horse cross, measuring in at 16.2hh. The aim being to offer a suitable mount to most people.
The Stables at Efford Down have been owned and operated by the same family since 1976 and are currently licensed with Cornwall Council.
