In these days of ever tightening budgets we understand the importance of providing value for money, particularly in relation to school trips/holidays that may not be viewed as essential.
We are a well-established riding centre (we will be celebrating our 60th anniversary in 2018) and we pride ourselves on providing a riding experience tailored to your pupils needs and providing that added value.
Our residential riding activity holidays provide a variety of experience and build skills that can contribute to both the mental and physical development of your students. Physical abilities such as balance and co-ordination are improved by riding and pupils also learn skills such as building a connection with a horse and taking responsibility for its care. This type of activity is particularly good for boosting self – confidence and increasing self- reliance, both valuable life skills.
We are fortunate to be situated in one of the most beautiful areas of the UK, the Black Mountains in the north east corner of the Brecon Beacons National Park. We have direct access onto the hills from our site and a stay here can provide so many other opportunities that, reinforce classroom study, through linkages with Key Stages 3 & 4, and bring learning to life. For example, the area is a prime site for the study of habitat, biodiversity and ecosystems. Students are usually having so much fun they don’t even realise that they are learning.
We are also close to the town of Hay on Wye the ‘Town of Books’ and the river Wye both of which provide opportunities for a variety of further activities.
If riding isn’t really your thing, our bunkhouse can also be booked as accommodation only, with a separate bungalow for staff.
