Make your way straight to the stables as your first ride will be this afternoon where you will have a short ability assessment followed by a ride out with a qualified guide. After riding make your way to your chosen accommodation, a local award winning Bed & Breakfast or Country House Hotel with pool and spa.
Tonight the choice is yours for dinner. If you're staying in the hotel then you might like to eat in the onsite restaurant. The owners of the hotel have a nearby family farm where they keep cattle, poultry and much more. All the food on the menu is locally sourced and much of it home grown. Alternatively, if you stay in the B&B then you can take the short walk to the popular local inn with a tempting menu of pub classics and a choice of local ales.
After a hearty breakfast this morning you will take the short drive back to the stables for your second day of riding. You will be riding through the Brecon Beacons soaking in as much of the beautiful Welsh scenery as the sunlight will allow. After which, it is time to head back to your stunning and historic Georgian Hotel or cosy B&B, in perfect time to enjoy a quick soak before heading out for dinner. Tomorrow you will be parting ways with this fantastic corner of the world so make the most of the tranquil calm of this region.
Today you can enjoy a final morning’s hack before it is time to begin your journey home. If you stayed at the hotel then we suggest that you try and visit the wood panelled library, terrace, garden and organic spa before you are due to part, and if you are up early maybe a last dip in the pool.
