DORSET RIDING SCHOOL, TREKKING CENTRE AND LIVERY SERVICES

Hobby Farm is a family-run livery yard and equestrian centre set in 30 acres of rolling countryside in the beautiful Marshwood Vale right on the Dorset and Devon border between Bridport and Axminster.  Currently, we offer both full and part livery services to both experienced and novice riders and are dedicated to helping and supporting you and your horse.

From November 2019, Hobby Farm is pleased to be able to extend its range of equestrian services to include:

  • Riding lessons for all ages and abilities
  • After School Club
  • Toddlers' Pony Club
  • Owner Pony Days
  • Pony Club Camp
  • Hacking and Trekking
  • Group and Individual Lessons

We will provide more detailed information on this website just as soon as we can but please feel free to contact us if you'd like to know more.


The welfare of horses at Hobby Farm is paramount and they are considered to be part of Tom and Gaby's family. Any visiting horses are also welcomed into our family where their care is our priority at all times in a relaxing, friendly and supportive environment.

Gaby and Tom adore this area of West Dorset and want to share “their little corner of Dorset” with other like-minded horse owners.  Whilst here, they want it to be "your place" where you and your horse can enjoy all the available facilities as well as the quiet and peaceful location that is Hobby Farm.

A Huge Comfort

My horse has been at Hobby Farm for the last three years and during that time I have seen it transform into the calm and well organised yard that it is today. My horse was ill recently and it was a huge comfort to be able to check him through the night via my phone app. Having an instructor on site is wonderful and the facilities are of high standard.

14.1hh 11yo Black Welsh mare being sold as a project as has been out of work since summer through no fault of her own!
Before coming to us she was being used for pony club activity’s. She needs a light weight strong rider as can be mareish hence why we are sadly selling her as we own a riding school and whilst she hacks out in company like a dream she won’t appreciate being ridden by novices in the school!
This pony is an absolute stunner and with the right rider will be a star! £1500.00ono
