Took my relatively experienced 12 yr old for a one hour ride. She had a great time with friendly companion Winnie from the stables. Meanwhile i had a walk around the beautiful valley, ending up at small national trust place tyr mawr. Win win!

Yes the stables are looking shabby. But the girl who led us for an hour and half ride was lovely, the horses were brilliant as me and my girls were absolute beginners. Hard to find but worth a visit

The area in which the stables are lacted is beautiful, pity about the stables themselves. We wouldn't go here again, Wales is full of great views.
