The Golden Horseshoe Ride 2019

For the 2nd year in a row, My Favourite Cottages is delighted to sponsor the Golden Horseshoe Ride on Exmoor this month

My Favourite Cottages are absolutely delighted to sponsor for a 2nd year running the Golden Horseshoe Ride. This annual equestrian event held in Exford in Somerset is the UK’s oldest competitive endurance ride, where riders travel far and wide to compete in this ultimate ‘bucket-list’ endurance ride.

Set in the very heart of  Exmoor National Park, The Golden Horseshoe Ride offers great appeal to riders with its wide range of classes, as well as its location in a beautiful setting over the unspoilt moorlands.

Close to the ride, just outside the charming Exmoor village of Withypool, we also have a selection of self catering cottages that can be booked for the ride. These offer fantastic accommodation for families and friends, but also welcome dogs and horses. Stabling and turnout can also be provided at extra cost. In particular, Exmoor Farmhouse is a stunning 7 bedroom house where a large group can gather together to enjoy luxurious surroundings whilst visiting the area for The Golden Horseshoe Ride. Stabling and turnout can be provided on request at an additional charge.

The 53rd Golden Horseshoe Ride takes place on 17th, 18th and 19th May 2019. To find out, please visit their website at
