Cadarn Trail Riders

Riding Centre

Young horse lovers will love the horses at Cadarn Trail Riding Centre. A converted Farmstead with dormitory type accomodation and first class facilities with well equipped games room for evening activities, etc. Cadarn Trail Riding Farm is ideal for School and Youth Groups. It has accomodation for up to 45 guests. Free places are offered to group organisers. The accomodation is adjacent to fields for games, camp fires and scavenger hunts and the ponies graze overnight around the Centre.

A variety of Programmes are offered for Groups

One Week: Saturday to Saturday This is our traditional course which gives the option of a three day trail and two nights staying out at overnight camps. This unusual experience combines riding through a variety of mountain terrain with the excitement of camping, caring for a pony and living together in a group. It is suitable for both novice and experienced riding groups. All camping equipment is provided and our staff are responsible for cooking and moving the heavier essential equipment. There is usually one free afternoon.

Mid week: Monday to Friday Arrive on Mondays. The programme provides for an introduction to the horse with basic skills, grooming, feeding and saddling, with three full days on trail, based at the bunkhouse with the possibility of one overnight camp, if required. Groups leave on Friday.

Weekend or Long Weekend: Friday to Sunday/Monday Either two or three days at Cadarn with a full programme of instruction and activity. An action packed experience for novices and riders alike.

Unaccompanied Children Each year during August we run special one week adventure holidays for unaccompanied youngsters in the age range of 11 to 17 years. The Trail Riding programme is very popular.

1 or 2 nights are spent camping out on the mountain trail. Participants are involved in grooming, feeding and tacking-up each day and generally tending to the welfare of their mounts. Evening activities and entertainment is organised under supervision of our Centre Staff.
