Dartmoor Cattle Drives

Take part in one of Dartmoor's oldest traditions - with a place on the annual Dartmoor Cattle Drive.

The Spring Cattle Drive is one of the most exciting events of the year on Dartmoor and is ideal for seasoned riders who enjoy a challenge and want to get a real taste of authentic Dartmoor life.

Before you start cattle driving, your three-day riding adventure begins with a one-day trail ride, giving you the opportunity to get a feel for the terrain and build a partnership with your horse. You'll then join local farmers for the main cattle drive, moving 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, the Dartmoor Cattle Drive is an opportunity to ride American Quarter Horses with western saddles all day, and then relax and enjoy the warmth of the Arundell Arms by night.

For more information and to reserve your place on the Cattle Drive please call us on 01566 784666.
