A BARNSTAPLE mother-of-two has unveiled a new look business, which allows people to research, review and rate horse riding options around the UK.

Becky Spencer has set up a national website listing more than 3,000 riding schools, livery yards, disabled riding centres, riding holidays, western riding schools and equestrian colleges.

The website originally launched in 2009 but has recently been redesigned and Becky hopes that more people than ever will be using it.

“I wanted to create a website aimed at helping horse riders make an informed choice on where to ride and keep their horse,” said Becky, who has been riding for nearly 30 years and dreamt up the idea of UK Horse Rider Guide following her travels around the world.

“UK Horse Rider Guide allows users to review their experience by rating and leaving feedback – they can also research other horse riding venues throughout the country. We’ve now got over 3,000 yards on the site and get around 30,000 hits a month – it’s very exciting.
