Western Horse Riding

We ride western on superb well mannered Quarter horses with their fantastic laid back temperament, nimble careful feet that pick their way over Dartmoor’s miles of open spectacular scenery, crossing streams and rivers, up hills, down valleys, over land that has not changed for hundreds of years 2000ft up looking down on everything around you.

Your Horse Riding Holiday will be guided by experienced Dartmoor guides that know Dartmoor intricately, where the best Horse riding is, and where to avoid; passing Bronze age stone circles, medieval villages as well as more modern historical sites; hearing stories of legendary Dartmoor ‘characters’ and scary ghostly tales.

About Meldon Farm

Meldon sits on the foothills of Dartmoor and is ideally placed to make use of Dartmoor's Horse riding and grazing. Traditionally horses were used by farmers for tending their stock on Dartmoor. Whilst most farmers now use quad bikes, we have found for our terrain and our cattle, horses are a better option.

'Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or a fool from any direction!'

'Behind every successful Dartmoor farmer, is a wife that works in town!'
