The Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB offers some of the most romantic horse riding in Britain.
You can ride along winding tracks, splash through tumbling streams, explore forests and leafy lanes, canter through wildflower meadows and cross open moorland and windswept mountains. The whole area is covered with hundreds of kilometres of bridleways and byways.
Not surprisingly we have plenty of riding centres to give you advice – plus a horse and instruction if required. They’ll also do equine B&B if you want to give your own four-legged friend a holiday.
Visit www.ridingwales.com for a list of centres, accommodation providers and local shows. It’s run by the Wales Trekking and Riding Association, whose members offer a complete range of riding experiences – from a led walk for a four-year-old to advanced tuition for the experienced rider.
Or try www.clwydrangerider.co.uk, a website set up by volunteers to provide a one-stop shop for the local horse riding community.
