Ride with Liberty Trails and enjoy the best of British Horse Riding Holidays

Ignite your spirit of adventure on high quality horses in stunning landscapes with top notch hospitality

Liberty Trails is for passionate equine enthusiasts seeking a riding experience like no other. As one of the UK’s last wildernesses, Dartmoor is full of secrets and has plenty of stories to tell. And perhaps the best way to soak up its history and heritage is on horseback. Whether you want to bring your own horse or prefer to hire one of ours, you can ride to your heart’s content and immerse yourself in the unforgettable landscape of Dartmoor.

There’s plenty to explore out of the saddle, too, which is why our Dartmoor experiences are ideal for parties with a mix of riders and non-riders. There’s a Liberty Trails adventure to suit everyone, from guided day hikes to vintage car tours and tuition in fishing, archery or falconry. We’ll take care of every aspect of your holiday from start to finish – just tell us what you’d like to do, and we’ll sort out all the details.

The very best of British horse riding holidays

Liberty Trails offers a winning combination of exhilarating days on horseback, luxury accommodation and small exclusive groups lead by local guides who’ve been riding on Dartmoor all their lives.

Whether you’d like to come with your family, friends and horses for a horse party on Dartmoor  or as a couple for a romantic horseback adventure staying in one of the UK’s leading country house hotels, we can create the perfect experience to suit you.

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
