Hacking Experience
War Horse Country Ride

A group ride over open country, taking in a view of Joey's house from the film 'War Horse'

This experience will last a total of approx. 4 hours with approx. 4 hours in the saddle.

What's included

Arrive at 10am to complete all the necessary paperwork and hat fitting; you will also be introduced to your horse or pony, and meet your instructor, who will brief you according to your ability and experience.

Leaving from the yard we are soon out on the open moorland, enjoying the scenery, flora and fauna of highest Dartmoor. We will ride for up to three hours over the open moors, and look down over Joey's house in Steven Spielberg's 'War Horse' film.

Finding a sheltered spot we will eat our packed lunch before our return journey to the stables, via the beautiful Burrator Valley.

We only ride at the speed of the slowest rider, so if riders and non riders book together in a group, we will ride to the slowest pace.

We would normally expect to walk, trot and canter on all rides of over an hour, unless by prior arrangement (at time of booking),or if a group of people all of same ability book at the same time.

We will ride at the speed of the slowest rider, so if riders and non riders are booked together in a group, we will ride to the slowest pace.
