Due to COVID-19 Corona virus pandemic and certain travel restrictions we are applying some temporary policy changes to some of our tours.

For The Dartmoor Explorer (IT-ENG01):
If restrictions are in place and you are unable to travel we are offering the following:
  • Possible to postpone your trip to later in the 2020 at no extra charge

Guests that have a car are asked to drive from the B&B to the farm each day, for any that we transfer, the driver and the passengers are to wear a face mask. The same applies for airport pickups.
All horses will be tacked prior to guest arrival, wranglers will also untack the horses at the end of the ride. Wranglers will be wearing face coverings and gloves when tacking up and mounting guests.
No guests to go in the stables or tack room.
In the guest toilet, wipes are provided for each user to wipe all surfaces they have touched before leaving.
Each guest is given a COVID-19 information sheet on arrival.

We want you to have a enjoyable stay with us, however due to the current restrictions there are additional precautions we ask everyone to adhere to.
  • Additional personal items required:
  • Face covering/mask (does not need to be a surgical mask)
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Pack of wipes
  • Surgical gloves (optional)
Precautions whilst at the farm:
  1. Please be conscious of social distancing at all times, try to keep at least 1m+ from all other guests and wranglers.
  2. Unfortunately we are unable to transfer guests between the B&B and the farm; please drive your car to and from Meldon each day.
  3. When using the farm toilet, before leaving, please wipe off any surfaces that have been touched with the wipes provided.
  4. Our wranglers will tack and untack the horses each day, please give them room to work around the horses. Our wranglers have been instructed to wear a face covering and surgical gloves when working in the stable area. These will be removed when mounted.
  5. Only the wranglers to go in the stables and tack room. Please leave plenty of room around the stables door area to facilitate easy access.
  6. We will provide lunch boxes each day, on returning from the ride, please empty any leftover contents in the bin and wipe out with the wipes provided. The lunch boxes will be cleaned each night. You will be provided with a water bottle, which you will be responsible for during your stay. Please ensure it is left at the farm when you leave.
  7. We can only ride in groups of 6, As there are 8 guests + wranglers, we will therefore go out in two groups of 4+2 wranglers, 5 minutes apart, we will be in sight of each other most of the time, and have lunch at the same spot slightly apart.
  8. As this is our first fully booked week, it will take some adjusting to, please bear with us as some things may take longer than usual.
