Wales - for beautiful riding in beautiful countryside

A wonderful way to explore


Wales has everything to give riders of all ages and abilities a great experience in stunning countryside. Here you will find your perfect centre.

No country in the world offers such varied riding. In the North there are the mountains of Snowdonia, the gentle hills of Anglesey or the Welsh Marches. Travel further south and you are into the Brecon Beacons - where pony trekking was invented! It's still the same today wth beautiful farmsteads and stunning rides

South Wales offers a new twist - beaches and coastlines - and the scenery of the Pembrokeshire National Park, the Vale of Glamorgan and the Gower Peninsula. If you fancy a flutter then we have the latest racetrack to be opened in the UK at Ffos Las in Carmarthenshire.

Whether you are looking for a traditional ride or something a bit special such as cross country, beach rides, carriage driving or high quality tuition you will find it here - if not send us an email and we will sort it out for you.

If you are a beginner or an advanced rider, whether you want a gentle one hour pony trek or would prefer a more exhilarating canter or hack, you will be spoilt for choice plus accommodation for yourself and your horse in some of the most scenic locations in the world. So saddle-up and take a horseback ride around Wales from the comfort of your home.

Christmas and Birthday Vouchers most centres have special voucher offers which make a perfect gift for a horse mad youngster or that special person who "...always wanted to learn to ride..." With the post and snow being so unpredictable many centres can email vouchers in time for Christmas or that special birthday
