What We Offer
The riding centre caters for all abilites, which means that those with no experience, as well as the seasoned rider can enjoy the beauty of Dartmoor, with our 1hr and 2hr hacks. It really is a great way to see the moor and home or course, to Steven Spielberg’s recent film “War Horse”. Although the centre is not located near to the main filming set, the crew were seen filming in this area and one of our instructors is a film star in “War Horse”! She will be delighted to tell you more…..!
Rides are organised in small, same ability groups of 4 people or less, although larger groups can also be accommodated. Up to standard hats, riding boots and any instruction required is included and provided by our experienced and qualified staff. Beginners receive a mini lesson, before making tracks up to the moor, whilst the more accomplished rider, wanting to go faster than a walk will be assessed in the all weather arena. This will allow the rider to get the feel of their horse and the ride leader, an idea at what pace to tailor the ride.
Two hour hacks run from 10am – 12.45pm and 2pm – 4.45pm. Please note that the preparation and assessment time has been factored in as well, so you will need to allow about 2hrs 45 minutes. These are suitable for all levels of experience and really allow you to get into Dartmoor.
One hour hacks run from 9.45am and again please allow 1hr 45 minutes altogether. These are suitable for all levels of experience and recommended if you have a 5 or 6yr old in your party who has not done much riding before.
Lessons are available in the outdoor arena.
