Black Mountains Trail

Itinerary for Black Mountains Trail

Each day from Sunday to Friday we ride different trails – usually between 8 and 15 miles a day, stopping for lunch at village inns or remote picnic sites high up in the Black Mountains.
We return to the farm each night for a well-earned dinner and a comfortable bed.

You will ride up and down steep slopes, cross lofty summits, wade through rocky rivers, pass through dense woods and see the best of wilderness Wales.

Our home bred Welsh cobs have fast acceleration, perfect handling and automatic survival instinct! Running on grass and water, they’re more environmentally friendly than any machine!
At the end of the week, you will be a more relaxed, confident and knowledgeable rider, and hopefully be ready and keen to try one of our longer and more challenging trails next time.

Some guests also choose to take a day or half-day off from riding, and visit one of the local towns (Hay-on-Wye is always popular for bookshop browsing!) – so it really is a riding holiday centred around your relaxation and enjoyment. 

Non-riding partners are also welcome, and can enjoy the fantastic walking or biking right from the door, and can meet the riding group at lunch for a more sociable experience!

Weekend Extension
Includes accommodations for 2 more nights and riding on Friday and Saturday, with departure on Sunday after breakfast.
