Hi, we had a fab half day ride, glorious weather and friendly and helpful instructors. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed it, we would go straight back the following day for another half day but aching too much!

Absolutely amazing, I cannot describe it any other way, the staff were friendly and approachable, they keep you calm and happy throughout the trek and they give guidance and advice on what to do and there is no pressure on anyone to do anything they don't want to. I would recommend this to anyone of all abilities Many thanks to... More

This is my first visit to Snowdonia riding stables. It was a lovely experience. The staff are friendly and helpful. The horses are lovely :-). The horse, I rode, has a gentle walk and trot. I felt very safe and secure on him. Seeing Snowdonia from horse back was wonderful. Will definitely visit Snowdonia riding stables again. Thank you for... More

I had a great half day mountain ride here. The place is very well run, horses and ponies are well looked after. Staff are friendly and it was great that they took photos of me on the horse with scenery in the background. Would definitely recommend.

For hacking experiences ranging from an hour to half a day, Snowdonia Riding Trails offers a wonderful location near the western side of the park to take in wonderful vistas and breathtaking views of mountains, the ocean and rural countryside. The horses are nice and very well cared for and the team is lovely. A great way to see Snowdonia... More

Our family (2 adults, 13 and 16 year olds) did the 1 hour ride and had a great time. It was nice to see the scenery and a relaxing pace (as the driver, I don't get to admire the scenery much as we drive around). Staff were great and very friendly. It was a last minute booking and we were... More

We (me and my two boys aged 12 and 15) opted for the half day mountain ride, and had a very nice time. On our way home from a holiday we usually talk about our favourite experiences, and all three of us put the riding in the top three from our 10 days in Wales. Melissa and her team are... More

Took my 4yr old daughter who had never ridden before, for an introductory ride. The staff and owner were brilliant, really friendly and happy to chat while we were waiting for others to arrive. They introduced my daughter to her horse, Jill, a lovely little pony, perfect for a 4yr old. They let me lead the horse, so I was... More

Went with a group of friends from work. Most of us hadn't ridden for many years. The staff looked after us well, making sure that we were all comfortable with the horses before setting off down the lanes. Lovely views on the trek. Had a great time and I won't be leaving it another 20 years before I go trekking... More

Just been on a full days hack for the first time - amazing! We were lucky and the sun shone all day making for great views. Jacob was a little sweetheart & looked after me while we were cantering through the open fields on top of the mountain. Best day ever; special thanks to Carol our lovely, informative guide.
