Horse Riding

Ride with Liberty Trails and rediscover the spirit of adventure on Dartmoor 

Feel the wind on your face as you and your horse become one, galloping wild and free across a spectacular landscape with huge bright skies, wide-open spaces and panoramic views…

Liberty Trails offers tailor-made horseback holidays on Dartmoor. Whilst we specialise in adventures for experienced and confident riders, we also create bespoke packages for novices and beginners who are keen to explore Dartmoor in the saddle.

As one of the UK’s last wildernesses, Dartmoor is full of secrets and has plenty of stories to tell. Escape to the high moors and discover a landscape that’s changed little for centuries, with expanses of purple heather and yellow gorse, rolling hills , ancient woodland, winding valleys, granite tors, stone circles and standing stones.  

Our groups are small and exclusive and tailored to suit your level of experience, confidence and stamina. If you’d like to bring your own horse, we can arrange livery at one of our private stable yards, and transport to and from the Arundell Arms. Alternatively, you can hire one of our sure-footed, experienced horses used to being ridden out on Dartmoor. 

From a day’s trail ride to a multi- day Western-style horseback adventure, we offer a range of exhilarating riding experiences, including: 

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.
