"Beautiful scenery, exceptional horses and guides"

Loved everything about this trip, our guides Mandy and Phil (Other Phil) were extremely welcoming and showed us different sides of Dartmoor and the surrounding area, It was like riding out with your friends.The horses were fit and strong and well cared for, I had Ruby who was a character and great to ride. We were spoilt with the weather, the sun shone and the rain stayed away which made the trip more special.We will definitely come again and maybe even do the cattle run :) Thank you Mandy, Phil and Other Phil

Very impressive! This afternoon I went on a two hour hack at shilstone Rock Riding stables. The stables were incredible tidy and the staff ( two sister) were very friendly and helpful. Horses and ponies were in immaculate condition. I ve been to many riding stables before and alway get given an old, safest horse :( Today I was given a horse called Russel, fabulous horse, great fun to ride . I would totally recommend this stables :) A****

Lovely valley, farm fields and moorland trails with grazing ponies and sheep. Combine your route with a tea room or pub. Had some very useful advice on directions from locals.

Wow, have ridden at many stables, but the organisation of this one was first class, the immaculate hat hire, even down to the hair net provided was exceptional, the tack room was the most tidy, organised tack room I have ever seen. The instructor who accompanied us, was friendly and interested in us, she pointed out the amazing scenery, told us lots of interesting facts about Dartmoor and the native pony and generally shared her horse experiences. She was nicely relaxed and this gave us confidence, whilst riding on the blustery moor. In an era of riding schools closing in high numbers due to the high cost of insurance in this health & safety conscious world, the fact that an establishment as well run as this can still offer direct riding on the moor for all levels, should be cherished, I urge you to ride here, if visiting Dartmoor.
