Heading north . . .
The ride to Old Radnor from Freerein HQ could take you across the moors to the Royal Oak for lunch – but this would mean moving swiftly with plenty of trots. Otherwise bring packed lunches and ride via Glascwm Hill and Black Yat. Here you stay the night at the Harp Inn or Bracken Ridge B&B.

From the Teme Valley to the Severn Arms you will head to the grassy slopes of the Gwyrnygufron Ridge on Beacon Hill, fantastic slightly uphill canters for miles are on offer here. Then across the Bleddfa valley and make your way on to a fine track running beneath the northern side of the Radnor Forest all the way to Penybont and the Severn Arms Hotel, your final night’s stop.
The return along the high and exposed western edge of the Radnor Forest (panoramic views across Wales) offers the option to stop at the Red Lion for lunch before the journey back across the rolling hills to Painscastle. Perhaps a swift beverage here at the Roast Ox before popping back over the corner of the Begwns to Freerein HQ.
Arrive at Freerein HQ. Meet horses and check your maps and routes. Transfer to Painscastle where you start the ride from. Out on trail all day and stay overnight at Old Radnor.
