The 2 hour hack felt so short. Maria was a wonderful lead, tour guide and was very caring. She was able to tell us about the wildlife and the area around the moors. We always felt safe and comfortable on our horses with Maria's instructions.

Went for a 1 hour journey over Dartmoor with guide Maria. Myself and my husband are beginners and we’re given the appropriate horses for our levels. Maria was exceptionally lovely, and made the experience even better. Highly Recommend for beginners. Keith and Angela
