“ I have never before, in my long and eclectic career, been gifted with such an abundance of natural beauty as I experienced filming War Horse on Dartmoor.” Steven Spielberg.

Devon Shire Carriages



Enjoy a nostalgic trip on our fabulous Shire horses and carriage ride! Meet Rockie, Duke, Ben & Stuart, our working Shire horses who will take you and your family on a wonderful trip here in South Devon.

Step back in time on a trip down memory lane travelling on our Shire horse and carriage ride through Devon’s beautiful towns & villages. Not only is this a wonderful outdoor experience for all ages, it also directly supports the Shire horse breed through commercial work in harness which is so vital to the survival of this rare ‘at risk’ breed of working horse. A ride on our carriage is a truly multi sensory experience allowing you to take in the sights, sounds and feelings of such a traditional mode of transport.

Take in the wonderful views, local history and witness a way of working with Heavy horses which remains unchanged for hundred s of years. This really is a great British Heritage experience.
