Exmoor Calvert Horseshoe – “A Fantastic Day”

Calvert Trust Exmoor ran its first ever open country horse riding event, the Exmoor Calvert Horseshoe, on Bank Holiday Monday 30th May 2016.

‘The Exmoor Calvert Horseshoe’ offered two alternative rides through beautiful Exmoor countryside, a 15 kilometre leisure ride and a 25 kilometre endurance ride. Both rides started and ended at Comer’s Gate, near Withypool, taking in beautiful Exmoor scenery including the Barle River valley, Dunkery Gate,  Dunkery Hill, Cloutsham Ball and Horner Woods.

Local Rider Julie Lyons described her experience of the event; “I had a fantastic day, made some new friends, and enjoyed some beautiful scenery and lovely weather at this well organised event.  See you again next year!
