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

Very friendly staff and after asking questions about your experience chose a horse that would be suitable to your ability. They kitted you out to what you needed hat, boots etc, got you mounted and... More

Firstly, my top tips for novices (or experts needing a refresh): 1. Using a TomTom Satnav will not take you to the farm, so use the directions and the mark one eyeball. 2. Dress for the experience; the website says no jeans but wear long trousers and warm clothes and gloves - it does get cold up on the moor.... More

Can't recommend Cholwell more highly! I've ridden all my life and this gem of a riding centre offers super responsive horses, informed and delightful staff, and terrific riding. Donna and Di really took care of my novice 12 year old daughter too, giving her the opportunity to canter on open moors for the first time. You should have seen her... More

Lovely friendly stables to ride at, nice and easy to find just off one of the main roads running across the moor. Would really recommend, whatever your age or ability. You ride straight up onto Dartmoor, crossing over the main road towards the start and end of the ride is the only roadwork involved. Brittany took us out on a... More

An excellent stables. Due to work and regular house moves my family and I have ridden at many stables around the country (and around the world), Cholwell Stables is up there with the best. The staff were excellent and the horses were great, they obviously love the freedom they get on the moor, no plodding round a riding school here!... More
