Welcome to Trans-Wales Trails!
Horse Riding Holidays exploring Wales on Welsh Section D cobs, for competent adult riders
Join us for an adventure on horseback!
We offer pub and picnic rides, fully-inclusive weekends based here on our farm, and trail-riding holidays where riders stay in small inns along the way, and their luggage is transported each night.
We have an amazing herd of over 30 registered Welsh Section D cobs, bred here by us on the farm for over forty years – these horses are forward-going and responsive, uniquely suited to the challenging terrain that is their home. Living together as a herd, and with us since birth, they are super-relaxed and friendly.
We are in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, between Hay-on-Wye and Brecon.
Whether you come for a day ride or a longer adventure, you’ll enjoy long and exciting days in the saddle, experiencing the best of wild Wales and making new friends.
Join us for a riding adventure you won’t forget! Guaranteed!
ps – we ride throughout the year!
