Riding across the open hills
Wales is truly a supreme destination for a horse riding holiday. These trails will take you across the open hills on unmarked paths, through green lanes, streams and historic hamlets and on the rocky paths of timeworn drover’s roads. Admire the ever-changing landscape between the ears of your horse, listen to the call of the magnificent red kite and let yourself unwind in the peaceful nature.
An unforgettable trail
Each day you will groom, feed and tack up your friendly horse before heading out to the hills. You will be riding approx. 6 hours daily, enjoying long trots along the way and lovely canters on the hillsides. A well-deserved rest is waiting at your overnight stop in a comfortable, local country inn or b&b. Spend the evenings in the company of your trail companions with hearty meals and a drink or two.
You can’t help but fall in love with Wales with its rural charm and never-ending hills during this horse riding holiday.
