Horse Riding

Pembrokeshire has an embarrassing wealth of Wales Tourist Board approved riding and trekking centres for all levels of riders whether you are a beginner looking for a quiet trek or an expert wishing a full-blooded gallop across one of Pembrokeshire's  numerous long open beaches.

But this year we’re giving you even more reasons than ever to come to West Wales.

To enjoy your ride a little preparation is needed. Trousers are a must - preferably not with an inside seam as this may rub. You will also need a sturdy pair of shoes or boots with a heel (not wellies) and don't forget a lightweight waterproof. The stables are likely to provide you with suitable footwear and a safety hat too. When you book they will need to know your height, weight and ability, to pair you up with a suitable horse or pony. Be honest about your ability and fitness levels. It's better to underestimate your skills. Beginners, including those wishing to be led and advanced riders can usually be catered for. When you arrive for your ride ensure you arrive early. You'll need to collect hat, boots and get mounted - you may also like to help get your mount saddled up.
