Horse Riding on Dartmoor
If you love to ride horses, Dartmoor is the place to do it with dramatic scenery and some challenging routes. From beginners on their first trek to an experienced rider embarking on another adventure, Dartmoor is hard to beat. You can ride out on to the open moor, trot along woodland trails and bridleways, or follow in the hoofprints of Dartmoor’s forefathers along historic byways.
Horse riding on the open moor is an exhilarating experience and gives a totally different perspective than walking. Many public houses on Dartmoor welcome horse riders, providing tie rails or paddocks, water for your horses, and convenient picnic tables from which you can keep a watchful eye on them. Don't leave horses unattended – even on a tie rail. There are several riding stables on Dartmoor and details of these can be found in the Enjoy Dartmoor magazine, or through Visit Dartmoor.
