    Lovely place
    Took my daughter and her friend for an hour long ride on Dartmoor. Beautiful place and everyone was really professional and friendly. Safety a priority. Payment was really easy and I found it good value for money. Easy parking. Definitely coming back.

    Riding The Dream
    7 family members of all ages-converged on Cholwel for a riding trek over Dartmoor . I have to say it was a wonderful experience . Donna and her staff were very professional in their care and tuition particularly for first time riders . The views across Dartmoor were spectacular and the horses were very well behaved and gave it all a very relaxed feel . There was a hot drink available at the end of the trek and it was an invigorating and value for money experience .

    Fantastic hack
    Lovely hack over Dartmoor this morning. My daughter can ride but I am a beginner, we both really enjoyed it and can’t wait to come back! My daughter was able to canter with other riders while I was happy to walk and trot!

    Perfect family ride on Dartmoor.
    Thank you so much for a fantastic riding experience today with my grown up son, niece and great niece age 6. All of our riding abilities were catered for safely and the horses selected for us perfectly. Such a perfect location riding straight out onto Dartmoor 😊Can’t wait to come again!😊

    Brilliant morning hack exploring beautiful moors
    Booked a 2 hour hack for 14 year old experienced rider. Had a brilliant time on the hack cantering and experiencing the beautiful moor while we went for a walk. Really great set up at the yard and professionally organised with everything running like clockwork. Reasonable prices and highly recommended; we would certainly return for another hack.

    Fantastic riding stables
    I have ridden at many stables over the years but Cholwell is the very best. The combination of fantastic staff, wonderful horses and ponies, and beautiful Dartmoor make it unbeatable. The linchpin is the incredible Donna, who makes these stables so perfect for beginners to advanced riders, and the nervous to the confident.

The best experience from kitting is out for the very wet weather to helping my husband who was a novice - lead reining him to start with to instructing him during the ride how to do rising trot, hold reins, deportment etc
An amazing friendly and helpful staff with beautiful horses.
Thank you so much

Highly recommend this school - very professional from the first call to book to returning from an amazing 2 hour hack. Very good guide - very attentive and took us over some great terrain to see some amazing views!! Would highly recommend - I rode a lovely pony Lulu who put in an impeccable performance trotting and cantering her little hooves out!!! Great fun and made to feel like just out for a hack with a bunch of friends. Very safe and very caring. Even if you are slightly lacking confidence- go for it they will all really look after you - especially their beautifully behaved horses and ponies!!

Wonderful stables - the horses are well looked after. I went on 2 hr and 90 mins rides - both different and really enjoyable. The staff are all super friendly and knowledgable. They make sure you are kitted out safely, even help you mount with a mounting platform - check you are comfortable before you set off. Really excellent experience - tack was clean - horses clearly looked after and the views were lovely. Both rides were with a handful of people and catered for our level of experience (experienced but not particularly fit!) can’t rate the stables highly enough and I have been to a few. Thank you for making my stay on Dartmoor special.
