We offer an Intro Trek which lasts approximately 1hr at walking pace.

This is a longer distance route than the Novice Trek and takes approximately 2 hours.  To ensure the welfare of our horses, we have a maximum weight limit of 14 Stone (89kg) for this ride.

1/2 day Ride for medium level riders £70

The popular
Stone Circle ride includes Bedd Arthur and Gors Fawr stone circles, with amazing views across Cardigan Bay towards Snowdonia.

The Foel Dyrch ride offers a different view inland towards The Black Mountain and The Gower, with fantastic views across the Preseli Hills.
