Hello and thank you for visiting our website.
I'm Jane, the owner and head instructor here.
Ever since I can remember I've had a passion for horses - riding them, training, breeding, everything. And when I started Polmartin Riding in 2004 I was able to fulfil a lifelong wish to help others share my devotion and experiences.
Since the early days we have established ourselves as one of the leading equestrian centres in fabulous Cornwall. As one of the few British Horse Society (BHS) Approved Riding Schools and Training Centres in the region our guests can be assured of the highest standards of riding, tuition and of course horse welfare and safety.
Of course our horses are our greatest asset and my greatest love. I'm so proud of our bloodline starting with my foundation Arab, Kowloon. And we now have his sons, daughters, grandsons and even great-grandsons and daughters. And if you can ride, then you'll be able to find out just how great they are.
After our great horses, perhaps our greatest feature is the fantastic trekking we offer along miles of our own private tracks and trails. All completely free of traffic and with totally unspoilt views of the Cornish countryside.
Thanks to this and our great team we're immensely proud to have been awarded Bronze in the Cornwall Tourism Awards for best Active and Sporting Experience. Together with our many 5 star TripAdvisor reviews means that visitors can be sure of a memorable ride. And it doesn't matter whether you're an experienced rider looking for a challenge, or a family of complete beginners looking for a holiday adventure - you're all welcome. And if you are on holiday staying at Deepark Forest Holidays, Stonerush Lakes or Botelet then we are right next to you.
For several years I've been riding in films as well as providing hero horses for many TV and film productions here in Cornwall. This experience has lead to us offering training courses for actors wanting to increase their portfolio with riding skills. Some of our actors have appeared in iconic products such as Game of Thrones, Poldark, The Witcher and many other well known TV shows and films. And our courses are ecognised by the Spotlight casting agency.
We are exceptionally lucky to live and work in such a beautiful part of the country. Now guests can share in the beauty and tranquility of our surroundings and stay in one of our fantastic, purpose built Shepherd's Huts or The Annexe which can sleep up to 5 guests. Whether you want to come on a course to improve your skills or get a BHS qualification, or just a short break away they are the perfect horsey retreat.
Please enjoy exploring our website, seeing our wonderful horses and getting a taste of what you can expect if you visit us.
I really hope to meet you soon,
