Channel your inner Cowboy and take part in one of Dartmoor's oldest traditions - the annual cattle drive
The Spring Cattle Turnout is one of the most exciting events in the year on Dartmoor and is ideal for seasoned riders who enjoy a challenge and want to get a real taste of life on Dartmoor.
The three day riding adventure starts with a one day trail ride to give you the opportunity to get a feel for the terrain and build a partnership with your horse. You'll then join local farmers to move up to 150 cattle from where they have been sheltering during the winter onto the high hills of Dartmoor. On the third day, you'll be split into small groups to disperse the herd to their summer grazing areas.
For experienced riders looking to learn new techniques and try a different style of riding, this is an opportunity to ride American Quarter Horses with western saddles all day and enjoy the warmth of the Arundell Arms at night.
