Nestled in the Mendip Hills ‘Area of Outstanding National Beauty’ (AONB), Tynings not only has beautiful surroundings to ride in, but it also has the added benefit of a ‘No Road’ policy. All of the trails they use can be reached without setting a hoof on the public highway, so that even complete beginners can ride out safely. The Mendips bridleway network allows access to thousands of acres of forestry and moorland, with spectacular views across seven counties. Novices riders can sit back and enjoy the scenery or watch out for the herds of Exmoor ponies that have been brought in to graze the upland heath, while for more experienced riders there are plenty of open tracks for a good canter.
