Dartmoor Horse Riding

Indulge in the ultimate horse riding holiday and enjoy high quality horses, wide open spaces of Dartmoor, luxury hospitality and exquisite food and wine

The perfect horse riding holiday isn’t just about the riding – it’s about the landscapes you ride through, the quality and condition of the horses you ride, even if you hire rather than bring your own, the comfort and relaxation at the end of the day and the exquisite food and wine that makes every evening special. We understand that it’s the finer details that make all the difference which is why we do everything we can to ensure your  horse riding experience on Dartmoor exceeds your expectations.

And once that’s all in place, just imagine escaping from it all and riding a horse across one of the highest, oldest and least inhabited areas of protected countryside in England in the company of your horse, your guide and a couple of your carefully selected friends.

With our experienced guides, you’ll explore Dartmoor’s varied terrain, horse riding across wide-open moorland and ancient woodland. It’s a little like stepping back into the past – you’ll rarely see a vehicle, and apart from the occasional farmhouse, there are few signs of civilization, making it blissfully tranquil.

You can choose to start and finish each day riding your horse from the same place, varying the length and distance of each ride, or opt for a longer, exhilarating horse riding safari where the horses spend each night in a different outpost.

At the end of each day, you’ll finish your horse riding adventure at a privately-owned stable yard in a perfect setting, where you’ll be able to settle your horse, relax over a cup of tea or a cold beer and share stories of a great day in the saddle before re-joining your non-riding friends.
