Explore the Preseli Hills on horseback

We offer escorted horse riding for all abilities
1hr Intro Trek for beginners £30
 
We offer an Intro Trek which lasts approximately 1hr at walking pace. This is suitable for complete beginners who have never ridden a horse before. We will lead if necessary.  We have a choice of two level routes around Rhos Fach and Gors Fawr Commons, and both routes include a visit to either The Bluestone Pillar or Gors Fawr Stone Circle.

2hr Hack for medium level riders £50

For the more competent rider we offer a 2hr Hack (taken at a faster pace than a trek) which includes more trotting and a canter. This is an extended route of the Novice Trek and takes approximately 2 hours.  

1/2 day Ride for medium level riders £55
 
For the more competent rider, we offer a longer and higher Trek route that explores one of the larger Hills such as Carn Menyn or Foel Dyrch and offers spectacular views.
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.
The Mountain Gate ride offers views across the Preselis, Cardigan Bay and Carn Menyn.
*New Route for 2020*
The Stonehenge Bluestone ride explores the Preseli origins of the infamous Stonehenge Bluestones and passes the actual site from where they were quarried. 
These rides take approximately 2.5hrs to 3hrs and are only suitable for riders with previous experience due to the challenging terrain. There will be some trotting and cantering on these routes.
2hr Trek suitable for novice riders £45

 

We offer a Trek suitable for Novice riders who have previously been pony trekking and are able to ride off the lead rein.  We have a choice of two routes which offer fantastic views over Gors Fawr, Mynachlog-Ddu, Carn Menyn and across to Foel Cwmcerwyn. This leisurely trek lasts approximately 2hrs at walking pace, although there maybe a little trotting dependant upon the competencies of the group. The pace is always set to allow for the least experienced rider. 

Full day Ride for medium level riders £95
 
For the more competent rider, we offer an all day Trek  which explores the Preseli Hills and The Golden Road (an ancient Drovers road along the spine of the Preselis). The routes offer spectacular views in all directions and on a clear day Snowdonia and Ireland can be seen in the distance.

 

The Golden Road Picnic Ride includes a visit to the ancient Hill fort at Foel Drygarn, Bedd Arthur Stone circle and Gors Fawr Stone Circle. You will need to bring your own packed lunch - we provide saddlebags.

The Tafarn Sinc Pub Ride follows the Golden Road over Foel Feddau, the highest ridge in the Preseli Hills, before dropping down through Pantmaenog Forest to Rosebush and a lunchstop at The Tafarn Sinc Pub. You will need to bring some money to pay for your pub lunch.

 

*New Route for 2020*

Our Trail Ride to Newport is an epic one-way ride crossing Foel Feddau, the highest ridge in the Preseli Hills, before dropping down through the Gwaun Valley. The route then climbs up over Mynydd Carningli with spectacular views before heading down to Newport and The Parrog to finish.  You will need to bring your own packed lunch - we provide saddlebags. This trail ride is limited to a maximum of 3 customers.

These rides take all day with approximately 5hrs in the saddle, and are only suitable for riders with previous experience due to the challenging terrain. There will be some trotting and cantering on these routes.
