These beautiful new rides are situated on the border between England and Wales. The 130 acre hill farm overlooks the Ceiriog Valley and has views towards the Berwyn Mountains. Their nearest neighbour is a mile away, and the nearest village 2.5 miles away. They are a BHS approved equestrian centre and an official Pony Club centre, so have a wide range of horses of all sizes and shapes, to suit all abilities.
There is plenty of off-road riding on bridleways, moorlands and ancient drovers' tracks around the Welsh valley which is full of history, with both slate and granite quarrying (which was carried on its own tramway to meet the canal at Chirk). The peaceful farming valley is home to buzzards, red kites, peregrines and the rare hen harriers, and the fast flowing Ceiriog River runs through the bottom of the valley and through the villages and hamlets.
The 3 or 5 night trails are aimed at intermediate riders upwards, but private groups of more novice riders or mixed abilities can also be accommodated. During 2021, these trails will always return to the farm to overnight, even when the horses stay out on the trail, but it is hoped this can change for future years.
There is also a centre-based relaxed stay for novice or beginner riders who would enjoy a combination of shorter hacks and lessons to improve and build confidence.
There really is something for everyone with these fabulous new UK-based rides.
