“Liberty Trails was founded out of a love for Dartmoor and a passion for horses.”

Thinking of riding horses on Dartmoor? Considering a horse riding holiday?

Dartmoor has been on my doorstep since I was a child adventuring across it’s wild and open spaces on the back of a pony. It’s home to so many wonderful places to stay and eat, and so much to enjoy. For me, providing horseback riding adventures and introducing people to it the spectacular beauty, it’s moods and vast range of wildlife is both a privilege and a pleasure.

There’s a special kind of magic at work on Dartmoor. There’s something about the landscape that draws you in – it’s a place that can really get under your skin. Many of our guests find themselves drawn back time and time again to share it with friends, or explore it at different times of year.

Over the last three years, Liberty Trails has grown and we now offer an exceptional range of options for riders and non-riders alike. We have a committed and enthusiastic team, all of whom have expert knowledge of Dartmoor and are highly experienced in creating unforgettable holidays that go beyond our guests’ expectations, both on and off horseback. Each of our holidays is bespoke, so whatever you desire from your Dartmoor horse riding adventure, we can make it happen.

Whether you’re considering something challenging such as the Dartmoor Derby or something more luxurious such as the Saddles, Spa and Castle stay, we have a superb team of horses to hire – all are sure-footed, agile and experienced and used to being ridden across Dartmoor. If you prefer to bring your own horses, you can be sure that they’ll have quiet enjoyment and first class hospitality in our stable yard.

From the minute you call us, we’ll do everything can to help you create the holiday you desire. When you book a horse riding holiday with Liberty Trails you can rest assured that everything’s taken care of, right down to the smallest details.

We hope you’ll enjoy looking at our website. Please do call us if there is anything you’d like to know, or if you’d like to talk to us about creating your perfect Dartmoor horse riding short break.
