Horseback Riding: United Kingdom, Wales

We believe all horseriders are different. That’s why we’re sure everyone will discover their ideal riding holiday in Wales, complete beginner or expert. Depending on the region, you will walk through valleys, trot into rolling hills, trek beneath mountains, canter along high cliffs and gallop over beautiful beaches.

Is it the romance of cantering beside the surf or simply being on horseback in wide-open spaces and breathing fresh salt air?

No surprise the birthplace of pony trekking, a National Park called Breacon Beacons where Welsh cobs run wild, offers sensational trail riding: along ridges of the Black Mountains, into lush valleys and across the Wye for a pub lunch. The real surprise is a world so far from urban hustle is actually so close.

Pembrokeshire has some of the finest coastal trail riding in Wales in Britain’s only coastal National Park. Hacks along spectacular beaches such as Druidstone Haven bring many riders to Pembrokeshire. In fact they’re so acclaimed many people overlook ancient bridleways through the Preseli Hills and oak valleys inland. Explorers, take note.

A trek in Britain’s first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty packs in the scenery. You might descend from Cefn Bryn’s moorland through a bluebell oakwood to the beach at Three Cliffs Bay or walk along high cliffs near Port Eynon. Wherever you trek on the Gower Peninsular you are guaranteed beautiful scenery.
