Riding at Trans Wales Trails

Here at Trans Wales Trails, we like to pride ourselves on standing out from the crowd. Riders often leave here telling us they’ve never experienced riding like it on any other horse riding holiday. If your experience of trekking up until now has been to get your horse in line and stay there nose-to-tail, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how different our approach is. Our horses are forward-going, well schooled and sociable.

Here, riders are encouraged to build a relationship with their horse, and we’ll help you catch, groom and tack up at the beginning of the day. Our horses are beautiful, fine, fit Welsh cobs who will surprise you with their sureness of foot and superb balance. Compact, intelligent and strong, they are ideally suited to the hills and mountains that surround us. The terrain is varied and includes open moor-land, thick forests, picturesque country lanes and narrow mountain ridges. During your holiday here, there is plenty of opportunity for fast canters and gallops, and even the chance to jump logs and ditches – all optional of course!


Riding Weekends

Available year round, all-inclusive weekends start from just £250 for all meals, accommodation and 2 full days trail riding.



Longer Trails

We offer a range of horse riding holidays from shorter trips to our flagship ride across Wales, the Trans Wales Trail. Experience world-class trail-riding where we transport your luggage to each overnight stop, leaving you to relax on horseback.



Day rides

Day rides (and sometimes half days) are available all year round – explore the best of our local trail-riding with lunch at a local pub along the way included.
