Polmartin Riding has over 10 years experience in providing horses and riding doubles for film, TV and stage productions in Devon and Cornwall.
If you are an actor or actress we can train you for specific roles or to enhance your portfolio. We run courses and workshops throughout the year.
Recent film work includes a major Bollywood production shot on location here at Polmartin Farm as well as around the south west of England. Other film work includes the highly successful Rosamunde Pilcher German film productions shot on location around Cornwall, a reality TV dating show and The Highwayman.
We are able to supply hero and background horses as well as riding doubles for the leading actors and actresses. As our photo gallery shows our horses are exceptionally well trained, patient and totally calm in front of the camera. However they still have great presence and persona on screen. We can also train these actors and actresses to ride the horses to standards meeting the director's requirement.
For performers wishing to increase their repertoire we run a variety of courses, which can include formal BHS qualifications, to add value to their CV. And this course is recognised by Spotlight, the Home of Casting. Course content varies according to requirement but can cover riding, handling, tacking up and grooming enabling the performer to meet a wide range of equestrian acting roles with confidence and professionalism. Check our EVENTS for dates of Actor's workshops and courses.
