National Park Ride


National Park Ride
Wales Wales

An action packed week for riders looking for a little challenge, a lot of fun and a Welsh Cob for a great riding companion!

Imagine a whole week to quietly explore the beautiful wild mountains of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Taking ancient drover routes across the hills where you will share the spectacular landscape only with wild ponies and sheep, and enjoying panoramic views as you gallop over wide open commons.  Taking ancient drover routes across the hills where you will share the spectacular landscape only with wild ponies and sheep, and enjoying panoramic views as you gallop over wide open commons. As well as stunning natural wilderness, trails can also include historical interest such as the oldest pub in Wales, the ancient monastery at Llanthony, or the quaint ‘Book Capital of the World’ market town Hay-on-Wye.

Each day we stop for at a traditional inn for a hearty lunch, or enjoy a picnic while our horses take a well deserved break and a grass picnic of their own!  As our trails increase in distance and challenge over the week, the second half of the week is spent away from our base at the farm, so that we can explore the far reaches of the park.

We spend 2 nights away at friendly B&Bs, and enjoy dinner in local pubs, while our horses overnight in fields nearby. This is an exciting and challenging week, and therefore not suitable for novice riders.
