Wales offers such varied horse riding that it's hard to know where to start! In the North there are the mountains of Snowdonia and the gentle hills of Anglesey which provide ideal riding for you and your horse.

Further south are the Brecon Beacons where pony trekking was invented! So as you would expect there are some beautiful traditional farmsteads and numerous stunning horse riding paths.

South Wales offers something a bit different for the horse rider. Beaches and coastlines dominate and the scenery of the Pembrokeshire National Park, the Vale of Glamorgan and the Gower Peninsula are all worthy of a visit.

If you are a beginner or an advanced rider, whether you want a gentle one hour pony trek or would prefer a more exhilarating canter or hack Wales's varied landscapes guarantee you'll find the most scenic locations in the world whilst on horseback. So saddle-up and take a horseback ride around Wales!
