Horse Riding to the Pub in Wales!

Ride horses through the Commons and to the pub in Wales in this Equitrekking video.

by Darley Newman

One of my favorite horse riding experiences in Wales was a ride through the beautiful Commons and to a nearby pub. Where else can I ride a horse to the pub!

Sian of Tregoyd Mountain Riders, which offers trail rides and multi-day riding adventures in the Brecon Beacons, and I went up to the high commons, where there is a huge flat, grassy area that is great for canters and gallops. On the way, we passed some feral Welsh Mountain ponies, which were smaller than those that I had seen in Wales before. There were a few foals and the ponies were not skittish about us riding around them.

We were able to ride our horses into a small nearby town and hit the pub. We parked our horses outside and sat at a table beside them, where we ate toasties and drank cokes. Toasties are what they call toasted sandwiches over here. This pub had the best toasties that I have had on the trip. The ham was warm and the cheese was perfectly melted. We also had chips (Welsh speak for American fries). It was the perfect way to end my time in Wales with our horses at the pub!
