What Sara Cox Made of Her Liberty Trails Experience!
We’re thrilled that BBC Radio and TV’s Sara Cox has written a fabulous article about her adventure in the 2016 The Dartmoor Derby, run by Liberty Trails, in the new issue of BBC Countryfile magazine, now on sale in newsagents.

She perfectly conveys some of the many emotions that come with riding on these moors: “I find the scale of Dartmoor makes me feel like a tiny dot on the landscape — and helps me forget the little nuggets of stress that usually litter my days…. I can’t stop smiling”

For a brilliant account of her adventure, plus what Sara calls “the most middle-class sentence I’ve ever uttered – ‘My couscous has blown away!'” Do pick up the latest issue. Thank you Sara for being a brilliant sport, gutsy rider, lovely writer and every inch a true farmer’s daughter when a storm blew in overnight. We hope you’ll be back on Dartmoor again before long
