Horse Riding Holidays, Wales


Wales is part of the United Kingdom, bordered by England, the Irish Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. It is a relatively small country but has over 1200km of coastline and a wonderfully diverse and mountainous landscape. The beautiful beaches and National Parks, along with the temperate climate and lush countryside, mean that Wales is a beautiful country for riding and offers many spectacular sights, some challenging terrain, and perfect sandy spots for a memorable gallop.

There is such variety of riding terrains in Wales, from the mountains of Snowdonia, the gentle hills of Anglesey, or Welsh marches in the north. Travelling further south are the Brecon Beacons- the origin of pony trekking. Much of Wales's diverse landscape is mountainous, many of which are over 3000 feet and offer some outstanding and breath taking views. Wales also has four areas of outstanding natural beauty; these include Anglesey, the Clwydian Range, the Gower peninsula and the Wye valley. The wild coastlines offer clean blue water, white sandy beaches and impressive marine life including basking sharks, Atlantic grey seal and dolphins so offering fantastic sights for wildlife enthusiasts as well as horse riders.

Wales may have a reputation for rather wet weather, however it can be assured that its not all doom and gloom. The sun often shows its face enhancing the natural beauty of the Welsh landscape and making a very enjoyable ride.

The Welsh Valley Trails horse riding holiday, in Wales
Nestled against the English/Welsh border is this fabulous trail riding centre which has been operating since 1989. Trails head out across some of the best riding country in mid Wales with old green lanes, open hills for cantering and traffic-free country lanes. There are two trails to choose from, both of which are mobile routes where you stay in different places along the way. The epic Border to Coast trail crosses straight through Wales to finish on the beach, whilst the Welsh Prince Trail is a circular trail through the surrounding hills and valleys.
