The first ever Dartmoor Derby saw over 40 riders from all over Britain and as far afield as Austria tackle this new riding challenge, which took over three days from the 23 -26 September to complete.
“We've been so pleased that this new riding adventure has attracted interest from around the world,” said founder Elaine Prior, who also has an established adventure riding business on Dartmoor, Liberty Trails.
The riders including BBC broadcaster Sara Cox covered the 50 miles across stunning scenery guided and supported by ground teams. “It was completely awesome; I loved it,” said Sara Cox. The event raised £1,887 for the charity, British Horse Society.
