Great riding!
Oct 2019 • Solo
I had a wonderful ride on Wednesday on the lovely Highland Pony Winston. I was the only rider that morning so it was virtually tailor made for me, I hadn't ridden for a few years so was carefully matched with my mount. Winston looked after me and was obviously well cared for. The yard was immaculate and all the staff were friendly and professional. Will definitely go again!

Chilled ride over dartmoor
Sep 2019
Friendly stables, my daughter and I had a lovely hack over Dartmoor towards Hayworth. Good guide. Sunny weather helped. Nice horses with good canter track up to the ones of the tors. Good safety checks in place.

Favorite activity in Dartmoor
Jul 2019 • Friends
My daughter - a horse enthusiast - booked us at Shilstone Rocks Riding Center. I’m a bit rusty, and we were both very jet-lagged. However, she would not let me back out. So off we went to Shilstone. We were greeted by very accommodating guides who selected horses to match our ability. After a bit of practice, we walked on horseback to to the Moors. I can tell you there is nothing more beautiful than riding across the Moors: wind in your hair, spectacular vistas, the fresh air and well cared for horses. If we could have managed another ride, we most certainly would have. It was the most enjoyable experience!!! We will definitely return!!!

Fantastic
Aug 2019 • Family
fantastic morning spent with Shilstone Rocks Riding Centre. We were a family group of complete novice riders, Grandma, Granddad, two older teens and mum and dad.
Shilstone Rocks is run efficiently and professionally and the horses are vey obviously well loved and trained to a very high standard. We were warmly welcomed and felt completely at ease with the safe and friendly guidance given by Ruth and Maria.
Seeing the beautiful scenery of Dartmoor on horseback was a wonderful experience and we would all definitely recommend it.

Back in the saddle....
Aug 2019 • Couples
Enjoyed a lovely, 2 hour hack this morning as part of a group, led by Ruth. Although I am an experienced rider, we booked on to a 'beginners ride' for the benefit of my partner and both really enjoyed it. Staff very friendly and professional. Well behaved, safe horses. Definitely recommend.

Pony Trekking with a View
Jul 2019 • Family
A beautiful drive up onto Dartmoor and a lovely trip on the horses/ ponies. The ladies were very professional and polite and the horses appropriately appointed to riders. The riding group was small and the pace appropriate. There were some steep parts to the return route which meant dismounting but worth it for gaining the height for the view down to the sea.
Time was given to get introduced to the horses and the staff were thorough on the phone beforehand.

Riding on the moors
May 2019 • Couples
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.
