Trans Wales Trail
Wales Wales

A horseback journey across Wales - from the English border to the Irish sea!

Here is a challenging horseback excursion offering an unrivaled riding experience as you cover the breadth of Wales, from the English border all the way to the Irish sea! The riding is fast and strenuous and riders should be prepared for long days in the saddle. This is the ultimate riding trip for the avid and enthusiastic rider looking to conquer new lands and virtually see all that the country has to offer from one end to the other. Over 6 days of horseback riding through some of the most historic, beautiful and unspoiled country in Britain, using mostly forgotten bridleways, open moorland crossings and several hidden trails over private land. The route passes through 4 mountain ranges – the Black Mountains, Mynydd Eppynt, the Elan Valley and over Plynlimon before we reach the glorious sea and are rewarded with an exhilarating final gallop on the beaches near Aberystwyth! Enjoy being the pilot of a well-trained, responsive and sure footed Welsh Cob, most bred on the same farm they now ride out of as an experienced and exciting trail and endurance horse.  Please note this is for experienced riders only - you must be fit with good stamina and love to ride at high speeds!
