Horse Riding

Whether horse-riding is a gentle hobby or your grand passion, all the sights and sounds dear to a horseman can be found here in the Devon countryside. Allow yourself to nurture the essential joy of any equine experience, from trekking across the outstanding natural beauty of Dartmoor, or quickening the pulse on the hunting field, to honing your skills in the dressage arena. Chat about the fun adventures and memorable experiences at the end of the day in the comfort of the Arundell Arms, where the welcome will be as warm and the memories will be as rich.


Superbly located in the midst of five hunts, opportunities for hunting in the UK rarely get better than this. From the moorland and wooded hillsides of the Lamerton to the steep wooded valleys and high hedge banks of the Spooners and West Devon, enjoy the thrill of hunting in beautiful Devon and Cornwall. We can arrange livery for your own horse or organise an experienced hunter delivered to the meet ready to go.

Riding Lessons

With opportunities for beginners to advanced riders, we can tailor a riding experience to suit at our local BHS Approved Equitation Centre. They have two all-weather outdoor schools, show jumps and a cross country course. Enjoy the graceful art of dressage or the exhilaration of cross-country and show-jumping. Learn new skills or enhance your own with expert instruction.
