Testimonials

Dartmoor is an amazing landscape and there is no better way to fully immerse yourself in such a wild and powerful place than on horseback!

The Dartmoor Derby was a once-in-a-lifetime treat for me. It lived up to, and indeed, surpassed, all my expectations. I was given three gorgeous horses to ride who were all, fit, well-mannered and forward going, and I really enjoyed riding each one. They all coped with the challenging terrain of Dartmoor beautifully. Riding different horses each day was excellent and kept the challenge fresh. The complex logistics of each day felt calm and seamless. I loved meeting everyone in the whole group, and I hope I'll stay in touch with many of them in future. Being at Bovey Castle was the cherry on the cake, and it was wonderful to be able to swim and use the spa at the end of a long day's riding!

Not only no hour of life is lost that is spent in the saddle. I was very privileged, especially in these uncertain days of our continent, to spend extraordinary days in the Dartmoor riding with Elaine and her team. Letting your soul dangle and deriving new energy out of this lovely piece of earth can only be recommended from the bottom of my heart. The horses were most reliable with lovely gaits and very comfortable. The support provided by Liberty Trails is outstanding. I was very impressed with the superb organisation of our stay. All in all I must admit, Liberty Trails did a superb job which I have not seen beaten in my experience.

The best way to see beautiful Dartmoor, on sure footed fit and well mannered horses, with the best hosts and hospitality all laid on - totally magical and unforgettable.
