Dartmoor is a great venue for pony trekking, and this activity that appeals to all, whatever level of skill, whether you are an experienced rider or this is your first time on a horse.
This is is the landscape that inspired the film War Horse and you will appreciate for yourself the stunning scenery of Dartmoor, and the clear air of the moors and even with a misty outlook its an uplifting experience. The Riding Stables that we partner with offers expert tuition to suit your ability. Costs will differ depending on the option and time period selected. Whilst we recommend the 1 hour session, this stables offers 1 and 2 hour rides with direct access along small tracks up to the open moorland, with views across the rolling Devon countryside, look out to the heather moors, gorse and the tors of Dartmoor.
Private sessions bookable for our groups (own transport maybe required).
This activity is also sometimes included on our Friday Adventure Day during the school holidays.
Families and individuals are recommended to contact the Cholwell Stables at Mary Tavy (01822 810526) direct to book a session if it’s not part of our Activity packages.
