Donna looked after everyone very well, (while dealing with a minor emergency of a car nearly tipping over!) Everyone was asked about their experience, horsed accordingly and split into appropriate levels and sent out in their separate groups. I was given the most wonderful horse Ellie and Donna made sure she chatted to everyone and that everyone was comfortable during... More

This was my first Hack on Dartmoor, and there will be many more. I am physically disabled and started riding about a year ago. The guys at the stables took everything in their stride, catering for both me and my wife (who is experienced) in a hack together. They checked my ability, and weakness and adapted everything for me, meaning... More

We were recommended to these stables by the owner of the cottage we were staying in, and really glad she did. We had a super ride over the moor, with plenty of cantering which was thrilling. We are not in our prime, and having riding lessions again after 30 years, so it was great to put the lessons into practice... More

Was kitted out in horse riding gear, and told that I was riding Amber. As I have hemiplegia (problems with balance and co- ordination) and Auditory Neuropathy (deafness), I found the staff very professional and helpful, offering tips on how to ride as I only ride horses with Riding for the Disabled Association. I enjoyed this experience of riding and... More
