Welcome

The West Devon Riding Club is based on the southern edge of the Dartmoor National Park and has been running since 1970. We are well known for being friendly and run by a small but enthusiastic committee.

At West Devon Riding Club we regularly organise events such as: open shows, show jumping, evening jumping and a wide range of training. We also run fun events including: pub rides, war horse fun rides, horseback archery, beach rides and barbecues.

During cold winter months, we put on a range of talks on equine and riding-related topics. To see when these events are scheduled, have a look at the calendar.
