Experienced riders can come here and have a ride, either one to one, or in a small group (4 clients maximum) and enjoy the freedom that usually only comes with riding your own horse. We define 'experienced rider' as someone who is comfortable and confident when riding horses that are independent thinkers, rather than 'nose to tail' horses. We do not need you to have schooling or jumping experience nor do you need any qualifications, simply a relaxed approach to riding and an ability to communicate easily, clearly and safely with your mount. This can include good steady happy hackers, you don't have to be speed freaks, but if you are, we can cater for that too.

All riders are initially assessed in the sand school before leaving the yard to ensure we’ve got you on the right mount. But from the word ‘go’ we have a very informal approach. We chat with you beforehand to find out what type of riding you are hoping for to ensure you get that bespoke experience, whether you're a 'hellcat' with a need for speed or a 'happy hacker'!

Choices range range from a fast beach ride, to a steady moorland hack. You might want to focus on wildlife and views or be interested more in developing your riding skills, or a social with a small group of friends. We can stop at pubs or cafes along the way, or take our own picnics. Our rides usually end up as a combination of several of the above, but our emphasis is always on enjoying being in the company of horses. 

We also have a whole range of unusual tack from western and austarlian stock saddles to bosal bridles, for you to try, and of course there is always bareback.

Give us a call and let us know what you are looking for on 07877253462

Prices are £30 per hr, £60 for 2hrs., £75 for 3hrs, £120 for whole day.

Tilly Berendt reviewed At The Peep Out — 5 star

My friends and I came for a beach ride while on holiday in Cornwall. We'd been planning one for years but had never quite managed to get around to it, as our jobs have scattered us to the winds, so it was really important to us that we found the right place. As lifelong riders and competitors we were worried that we'd end up booking at a yard that catered primarily to beginners, but At The Peep Out was recommended to me by a member of an eventing group and so we decided to give them a call. We knew we'd made the right decision when Shelley and Chris seemed as excited as us to give us the chance to really go for a good pipe-opener on their gorgeous horses Gino, Nowell, and Itsi. We went for a stunning two-hour ride along the beach with incredible views of St Michael's Mount and the most brilliant gallops. I could go on all day but suffice it to say that if you're looking for a bit of fun on horseback but you're not keen on shelling out for a nose-to-tail pony trekking day then this is so worth checking out. Chris and Shelley have a lovely ethos towards working with their horses - we'll be back for horse swimming (and perhaps some hunting?!) Thanks so much for helping us finally achieve a long-term goal!

We also offer the following special event rides;

Moon lit beach rides

These happen on, or a day either side of, a full moon and are very weather dependant. We need clear skies, low tide and a still warm night. If we get all those ingredients, we are up for a completely magical evening. There is something very satisfying and exhilarating being out on a horse in the dark on the beach whilst the town is sleeping. Because we have to obey the moon and the tides we are often riding as late as midnight. We ride with lights down to the beach but then turn them off to let our horse and our own night vision kick in. It’s often brighter than you imagine with the full moon reflecting off the water on the beach. When we get back to the yard we have a hot chocolate and put the horses back to bed. This ride is only for very experienced riders and only 2 riders per moon.

Approx 2hrs . Cost £75

Dawn Riders

Dawn rides happen in the spring when low tides coincide with clear sunrises. We ride from Long Rock to Marazion beach towards the sunrise as it appears over St. Michael's Mount. 

Approx 2hrs     Cost £75

Pub rides

We do various pub rides. One of our favourites is a ride up across the moor to Zennor on the dramatic North Coast, where we stop for lunch at the Tinner’s Arms, a quaint 13th century pub with stone floors and log fire. Views there and back are stunning showing both coasts in all their glory and with a whole plethora of wildlife all about us. Book the ride and meet up with the rest of your ‘not so horsey’ family at the pub. We can take riders who are less experienced but not total beginners.

Approx  3 to 4 hrs. The cost is £75 per horse excluding lunch.

Sunday Ticket to Ride

We meet up at 9,30 in the yard. This involves a ride up on to the moorland behind Badgers Cross, which can be a fast experienced ride, or we can also slow it down to cater for accompanying less experienced riders. We then head to Bus Fayre, an amazing double decker bus set in a field, with stunning panoramic views of Mounts Bay. Here you can meet up with your ‘not so horsey’ family and friends for a great Sunday Brunch, before riding back to the yard. 

If your children want a sit on the horses at Bus Fayre, please pick up a safety helmet that will fit them from The Peep Out Yard beforehand.

Please note; All rides are weather dependant.
