There are few better places to ride and trek than the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons. Some of our holiday cottages offer stabling or grazing (listed below), and we have some great riding stables.
You can just wander into the mountains and see Welsh mountain ponies roaming free. The Welsh Cob is now the pride of many local and international horse breeder which can be seen in their full glory at The Royal Welsh Show or at the local Village Shows held during the summer months. Pay a visit to one of the two Horse and Pony Sanctuaries in the Brecon area. There are International Horse Trials in late June and International Polo in early July at Glan Usk Estate.
The National Park has over 600 miles of bridge paths and tracks for riders. There are some phenomenal bridleways in the area such as the Trans Wales Trails, Three Rivers Ride,Black Mountain Loop, Epynt Way or other routes.
