I had a fantastic half day hack on a Sunday afternoon whilst on a mini-break in Wales. My guide Tas was friendly and talkative with knowledge about Snowdonia and some history of Wales. My horse CJ was superb; he walked, trotted and cantered up to the top where we saw breathtaking views and many stunning sceneries along the way without... More

We had an hour long introductory ride. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We're barely amateurs when it comes to riding however Mel and the team were extremely professional and helpful. We received good instruction on how to ride the horses. Basic handling was practised before heading out onto the country roads and bridal ways. The ride was well marshalled and at... More

We booked in the morning before we went. As beginners we just did the one hour - which was enough for the 'saddle area' to cope with the next day! You ride around the paddock once just to ensure you are all ok and then go for a walk down a long country path. Mel keeps checking you are all... More

Such a welcoming and friendly yard! All the horses and ponies are beautifully kept. I went on a full day ride with Tas, it was an amazing experience. He was such a friendly tour guide. I rode Douglas and he made the experience worth wide! He was such a gentleman! Made me feel rather safe up those mountain trails. The... More

I attended the snowdonia riding stables with my brother-in-law & father-in-law in April 2017 - we found it an excellent experience - the 2 instructors were knowledgable & very patient, which came in handy as we were complete beginners - we had 3 wonderful horses that behaved really well all day - I would highly recommend this stables to anyone...

Mel the owner is brilliant! she helped my daughter gain her riding confidence again. Friendly staff, lovely horses well looked after. Well organised, Mel checks the riders capability before heading out for the hack. We will 100% return.

The horses were fantastic and well suited to the rider and I could have happily... More

Despite the drizzle, our first ride in the Snowdonian hills was such fun and definitely memorable. An entertaining morning, from the tuition at the stables, to riding the country lanes and negotiating a small group cows - an unexpected and potentially tricky situation that was handled brilliantly by our leader Tash, whose instruction and patience was great throughout the ride....
