Teme & Ithon

Venture further afield with long days and challenging route finding.

We all look forward to welcoming you on The Teme & Ithon Trail.

The Teme & Ithon Trail is a five day trail ride. It heads all the way up to the Teme Valley on the Shropshire border and then over to the Ithon Valley in remote Mid Wales. It is five lengthy days in the saddle of 16-18 miles per day.

During this trail, riders are able to explore Beacon Hill a fine piece of hill with lots of tracks, great canters and panoramic views. It is a remote and seldom visited part of the Radnor Hills trail network and is highly rated by staff and customers.

For Freerein+ trail riders only

Please note that this trail ride is only offered to those with previous experience of one of more Self Guided trail rides with Freerein. If you are contemplating your first Self Guided trail with us you can view a selection of suitable trails by following this link: horse riding holidays.

Heading north

The ride to Old Radnor from Freerein HQ could take you across the moors past the Royal Oak, continuing on to enjoy your packed lunches then ride via Glascwm Hill and Black Yat.

To the Teme Valley

An interesting and varied day, first over Bache Hill and then the Radnor Fforest. The route then takes you via Monaughty and onto parts of Glyndwrs Way heading to your night’s stop.

Explore remote parts of the Freerein trail riding network

A fantastic day follows covering the length of Beacon Hill through Llanbister and on to part of our Trans Cambrian North route. You come eventually to Abbeycwmhir, which is your overnight stop the other side of the Ithon Valley. One of my personal favorite days on trail anywhere. Worth a visit in the village is The Happy Union Inn whose sign features a rotund gentleman riding a goat and sipping a mug of ale.

From the Ithon Valley you head south following a beautiful trail along Glyndwrs Way.

From here on to Penybont, then over the edge of the Radnor Fforest for your final night’s rest. From here final day over the hills to Freerein HQ.
