horse riding in pembrokeshire

There are a number of great ways to explore the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside with one of the most exciting being on horse back. Fear not if you have absolutely no experience of riding previously, as experienced stables will find a noble steed to suite everyone. The countryside in Pembrokeshire is teeming with bridleways, old dovers trails and even smugglers paths which will take you along the coast, through woodlands and across open countryside.

If you are thinking of tackling a horse back ride during your holiday then you don’t have to worry about clothing and equipment. A stable will provide you with the riding hats and footwear as you should never ride with trainers or wellies on, all you have to do is turn up in trousers or jeans as skirts and dresses will leave you with sore legs come the end of the day.

Be honest with the stables when you speak to them as they will need to know your level to find you the right horse, the last thing you want is to exaggerate your skills and find yourself with a horse galloping across the Welsh countryside with no earthly way of stopping it. Book your rides well in advance as good stables will be busy, especially during the school holidays.

There are plenty of approved riding and trekking centres throughout Pembrokeshire that cater to both individuals and groups, and provide rides to all levels of rider. They offer a number of different trekking options that take in a variety off different landscapes including an amazing gallop across one of Pembrokeshire’s many wide and open sandy beaches.

So the next time you are staying in a Pembrokeshire cottage why not feel the wind in your hair and the sea spray in your face with a truly memorable gallop across the sands.
