About Us

Bobbie and John Bullman Bobbie and John Bullman After successfully starting and running a very busy riding school on the edge of Epping Forest, Bobbie and John Bullman (pictured right) decided to relocate and move to Exmoor for the quiet life in 1989. They brought the business name ‘Pine Lodge’ to Higher Chilcott Farm, along with their horses and a collection of dogs, cats and other animals - including Gloria the pig.

Of course since the move their lives have been anything but quiet as they introduced thousands of people to the sheer joy of riding on Exmoor. Bobbie has now been escorting hacks and hosting riding holidays on Exmoor for more than twenty five years. These have been special times, creating many lasting friendships and helping Pine Lodge to forge its reputation as one of the most exciting and interesting places to go horse riding in the UK.

Pine Lodge isn’t your run of the mill trekking centre with grumpy plodding horses walking nose to tail. Our horses are happy, well schooled and forward going with temperaments and sizes to suit all riders. Many have been bred and trained on the farm and most riders return again and again to ride on their favourite horse and spend more time in this beautiful part of Britain.

Pine Lodge offers riding on Exmoor, horse riding holidays and self catering holiday accommodation in our converted stone horse barn or a cosy Exmoor cottage. Get in touch today to book your unique Exmoor riding experience
