A fine and varied four days in the Radnor Hills leaving Freerein along the green lanes and hill tracks that are the start of the Begwns Trails. At the end of the first day you and your horses will stay at either Goblaen or Newgate guest houses for the night.
Great riding days in the saddle
A great choice of routes is offered on the second day. An early start is recommended for the longer trail which has the option to stop at the Royal Oak Inn for lunch. Alternatively take a packed lunch tie up under the huge old pine trees near Black Yat and take in the views. Either way your route finishes the day by descending to Llanfihangel Nant Melan where you and your horses stay the night at the Red Lion Inn, Fforest Inn or Fedw B&B.
The third day on this horse riding holiday, another day in the saddle takes you to the hamlet of Bettws. Again you have the option of a pub to stop at – The Severn Arms – where you can tether the horses and enjoy lunch.
Start your day by skirting the edge of the Radnor Fforest with outstanding views across Mid-Wales and great canter opportunities. Drop down off the hill and follow the lanes to the village of Penybont, where your pub stop awaits. After lunch follow the old green lanes and fields into Bettws to either Bettws Mill, Little Bettws or Glanoer guest houses.
The final day offers a choice of routes via Llanbedr Hill & Maun Pools back to Painscastle and over the hills to Freerein HQ.
