Imagine the excitement…lovely Clydesdale horses carrying you into the heart of Dartmoor’s unspoilt countryside on a unique riding adventure. We are based at Brimpts Farm, in the midst of some of the finest riding in the whole of the UK, with access to beautiful moorland, forest and miles of bridleways.

In Southern England’s largest wild area, enjoy genuine peace, traffic free trails and miles of miles of gorgeous countryside. We offer hands on experiences where you can come and work with the horses, getting to know these delightful gentle giants. We also provide short heritage rides from 2hrs to full day hacks to explore this area on the back of a very special horse.

Join us on long journeys of up to 5 days duration, wending our way on the backs of these gentle giants through countryside rich with spectacular views, wildlife and steeped in ancient historical remains, a fascinating landscape which will be interpreted for you as we go. Food and accommodation is taken in farmhouse b&b’s, bunkhouses and gorgeous Dartmoor inns. Our rides never have more than six horses and our clients always get a high level of individual attention.

Heavy horses once worked on every Devon farm, pulling ploughs and carts laden with produce. Come and join us in the peacefulness of Dartmoor for an unforgettable heavy horse experience with the Big Friendly Giants.
