2016 is a VERY SPECIAL YEAR for the
Wales Trekking & Riding Association.
We are
60 Years Old

& still enjoying the initial successful venture of a group of farmers who wanted to introduce pony trekking to visitors on holiday.  Since 1956 the Association has gained members across Wales who offer riding in spectacularly breath-taking countryside 

North Wales Centres  This beautiful area boasts the Snowdonia mountain range with its tremendous views, as well as castles, cliffs, abundant wildlife, historic sites and quaint coastal resorts.

Mid Wales Centres  A trekking paradise, Mid-Wales contains open countryside, forests, rivers, hillsides, incredible views, lakes & charming villages.

South Wales Centres With a stunning coastline of cliffs, beaches & sand dunes bordered by rolling hills, valleys & quaint ports, South Wales offers a scenic & inspiring riding destination.

We are committed to the safety of the rider & also the well-being of the horses & ponies.  All riding centres on this website have been inspected & approved to ensure your riding experience is safe as well as pleasurable.

 Many offer their own accommodation, or can recommend nearby places to stay.
