Take The Reins in WalesClyro, Wales
Climbing into a saddle is a befitting way to exploring a rugged country steeped in history and legends. Meet your Freerein guide and get acquainted with your steed – you’ll be responsible for your horse’s care for the coming days – before you set out on your ride. On the four-day Welsh Prince Trail ride, you’ll begin by cantering along the velvet trails that score the Begwyns and Mynydd Epynt and overlook the Wye Valley, a breathtaking patchwork of greens, woodlands and babbling rivers.
Breathe in the fresh air as you climb Aberedw Hill, cross into the valley to Llanbedr Hill then walk the line at Hergest Ridge, the border between England and Wales. After a full day in the saddle, wind down beside a crackling fire and fill up on wholesome nosh at a cosy inn or bed and breakfast.
There are shorter rides available, and for those experienced on horseback, there’s also a number of self-guided riding tours available.
The four-day Welsh Prince Trail ride starts at about US$1230 a person, twin share, all inclusive.
The four-day Welsh Prince Trail tour departs between
