What is Trekking?Trekking
Pony trekking is
accompanied hill rides at walk and trot for the complete beginner, family groups and those of you who haven't ridden for a long time and  want a nice steady ride with wonderful views.

For the best experience, we recommend you discuss your children's riding ability with us during booking to ensure that the ride is appropriate for their age and any previous experience.

All the rides are led by experienced, friendly guides who will assist you and point out interesting features along the way.

Half day Trekking
Half day treks last about 2 hours and are available morning and afternoon. On a circular route, you ride along quiet lanes before reaching the open mountain side for a ride amongst the bracken, heather and sheep with stunning views over Llangorse Lake.

If you are feeling you would like a longer day, you might like to try the longer full day trek. A slow ride at walk and trot gives you the opportunity to ride through pleasant mountain scenery and allows you to develop a bond with your sure-footed horse. We stop for a lunch break in a village pub or cafe* before returning sedately to the stables.


* Subject to Covid regulations allowing hospitality to open. Please bring a picnic with you as an alternative.
