Riding holidays through perfect horse country.

The first part of this trail will be familiar to many riders – the wide cantering tracks across the Begwns leading down through woods above the Wye Valley. The trail to Builth then runs across the Eppynt high above the Wye Valley returning to the river at Builth Wells.

You travel the full length of Aberedw Hill on the second day before crossing the valley up onto Llanbedr Hill. From there is a choice of longer or shorter tracks leading eventually to the Roast Ox Inn, Painscastle where you stay the night. Please note that when guided trails stay at the Roast Ox, the horses stay a few miles away. Transfer to and from the horses field is by road.

From here head over the famous Hergest Ridge with ideal canter tracks to stay the night in Old Radnor at either Bracken Ridge B&B or the Harp Inn.

The ride back to HQ across the heather hills of Glascwm and Llanbedr to Freerein HQ offers a fantastic final day on trail.

A varied and exciting four day trail riding holiday with long days and interesting overnight stops. Ideal for frequent guided visitors looking to explore new routes.
