Riders on the Radnor Ronda trail

Amazing riding on the Radnor Ronda trail.

Riders on the Radnor Ronda trail

A spectacular trail ride . . .

A classic Freerein route & horse riding holiday. This ride circumnavigates the main area of the Great Cambrian Horse Trail network. Covering around 100 miles no part of your route is repeated.

An amazing adventure . . .

Your seven day adventure through Mid Wales takes in a large variety of terrain and accommodation places. Starting at Freerein HQ you travel over open hill, through forests and secluded valleys, ford streams and canter over heather covered moorland. All the days are between 14-18 miles per day with options to vary the route on this horse riding holiday.

The Radnor Ronda travels extensively through both Radnorshire and Brecknockshire. These are two of the thirteen historic and former administrative counties of Wales. Both were abolished in 1974 and transferred their administration to the new county of Powys. Poverty and agricultural change, decline and industrial progress elsewhere has always made Radnorshire and Brecknockshire places of net emigration. This makes these areas the least populated of England and Wales.

You can still ride all day without seeing anyone, just your trusty steeds, riding companions and the occasional Red Kite for company.

Optional Rest Day . . .

You have the option of taking a rest day on this horse riding holiday. It can be taken at any point during the trip and must be arranged when booking.

Grooming your horse to start the day.

Ride through perfect horse country . .

As on most trails your first day travels over the Begwns through Painscastle and on to either The Old Rectory or Cwmfillo for your first night on trail. From here the route takes you northeast towards the New Radnor plain and a night at Old Radnor.

From Old Radnor the trail swings north and over the Radnor Fforest (the highest point in Powys) before coming gently to land at the smallholding of Lower Fishpools where a warm welcome awaits horses and riders.

From Fishpools you circumnavigate the western side of the Radnor Fforest and drop eventually down to stay at either Glanoer or Bettws. The fifth day on trail finds you exploring Gwaunceste Hill before continuing on to Rhosgoch for your overnight stop.

From Rhosgoch the length of Llanbedr hill awaits then a night on the banks of the River Wye at Llyswen staying at Wye Knot Stop B&B. From Llyswen your last day brings you back to Freerein HQ. Well done!

This is an absolute favourite trail of Freerein customers and staff alike.
