“Nice horses, beautiful nature and wonderful guide”

Written on: 16/07/2014 by jrSomerville21 (1 review written)

We went for a half day ride with Tash this summer, and can't praise him enough! He was a very funny and skilled guide when it comes to both riding and the nature we were riding in. He handled guiding a group of people with very mixed riding skills beautifully, and made sure everybody could enjoy the ride. The horses were nice and the weather and scenary fantastic! It was everything that we had dreamed of :)… Read Full Review

“Stunning Horses Stunning Views”

Written on: 29/05/2014

During my first real trip to Wales I wanted to experience the snowdonia national park, in the best way possible, which for me, there is only one choice - horse back :-) Snowdonia riding stables were efficient on booking and friendly when I arrived. Best of all their checks of me as a rider and my experience was thorough. This always gives me confidence in a yard, I have worked with horses many years myself and know how important it is to match horse to rider (more for the benefit of the… Read Full Review

“Afternoon to remember......”

Great afternoon spent recently. Not the best weather wise, but that could not spoil the whole experience.

“Great first experience on a horse!”

Written on: 02/01/2014 by DouglasCrabtree (1 review written)

I booked a 1.5 hour hack with my girlfriend at Snowdonia Riding Stables a couple of days before new year. We were given Tash as our guide and he instantly put us at ease with his good sense of humour and obvious natural ability with horses. When on the hack Tash had a large amount of local knowledge which really added to the ride, he also kindly lent my girlfriend his gloves when her hands became cold. We were soon riding confidently at a fast trot (something I was aiming for on the ride) and… Read Full Review

“Family trek with Tash”

Written on: 02/06/2013

Today we had a half day trek with Tash. We are a family of four with 2 children 12 and 9. We have limited riding experience. Tash worked out our level very quickly. He was great with the kids. The horses were very well behaved despite our western style training! The scenery was beautiful and Tash was a great guide filling us in on all the points of interest along the way. I would definitely recommend… Read Full Review

“Full day trek”

Written on: 27/05/2013 by ChrisPugh (1 review written)

I recently went out with Tash for a full day trek and had a great time on the hills with fast canters over rough ground, which was very exciting as the horses were extremely sure footed and responsive. Tash is obviously an excellent rider and extremely knowledeable about horses and I picked up a few valuable tips, which has really helped me in respect of my riding ability. In my opinion the cost of a days riding is very reasonable and I would definitely recommend the stables and look forward… Read Full Review

“Horse riding in Snowdonia ”

Written on: 21/05/2013 by MaggieEH (1 review written)

I thoroughly enjoyed the half day ride and everything was superb. The professional way in which horse and rider are first matched according to height, weight and, most importantly, experience is brilliant. Also, we were then tested out in the outdoor school to check that we were comfortable with our horse (and they with us). This instilled confidence before we were let out on the mountain. Our guide, Tash, was not only professional and entertaining but he helped the two beginners with… Read Full Review

“best trekking in north sales”

Written on: 21/10/2012 by sarahcarty (1 review written)

I have been for a 1 hour group trek with Tash as our leader. This was my first visit to Snowdonia stables and I was very pleased with the friendly and reassuring staff. I have ridden at many different stables over the years but the tuition and quality of horses has been the best I have seen yet. The views from the bridle paths are breath taking and I would recommend a mountain trek for both locals and visitors to the area. I was made to feel relaxed and soon gained the confidence I had once… Read Full Review

“fun trekking in snowdonia”

Written on: 19/08/2012 by tonyandruth700 (1 review written)

Rennee took the time to allocate suitable ponies/horses to riders. Our trek took us across some interesting terrain from woods, across fields and up to the top of a moor giving fantastic views of the mountain range and Caernarfon bay. We were accompanied by three experienced staff who kept the group safe at all times. Would recommend you give it a go !!!!!!!!!… Read Full Review

“Snowdonia Riding Stables Half Day Trek”

Written on: 27/04/2012

My husband and I had a great time with this group! The horses were robust and ready to go. They were quite gentle and needed hardly any coaxing. It was nice to see that they were well trained and used to the routine. Our guide was excellent as well. He was very patient with us as we are not regular horse riders and gave us some good pointers. He was also very friendly and kind. It was a lovely trip… Read Full Review

“Lovely ride at Snowdonia Riding Stables”

Written on: 20/06/2011 by louiseB12 (1 review written)

I had a lovely half day mountian ride on a lovely pony called Spirit. She looked well cared for and happy. Some of the bridleways we went on ran right alongside the railway tracks for a little way, which meant we had to stand and wait for the steam trains etc to go past before venturing further for safety, so I got to watch a train too! They do say on the website they will provide a hat for you if you need one. I took my own back protector and hat etc and if you live in the UK and cosider… Read Full Review

“We had a fantastic experience at Snowdonia Riding...”

Written on: 23/12/2010

We had a fantastic experience at Snowdonia Riding Stables earlier this week. It was my daughter's birthday. We had travelled over to the stables from Liverpool and taken her friend with us too. Snow had fallen heavily across the UK and getting to the stables themselves was tricky - the stables and area all around under snow. We arrived and even with snow everywhere were met by really lovely staff who then put themselves out to make sure the girls could have an enjoyable time. They could so… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/09/2010

we booked the hour and half mountain ride. when we arrived at the stables, there did not appear to be an adult in sight, kids got the ponies ready and decided who was riding who, and one was quite rude, give me your money now before you go. safety did not appear to be an issue, as a regular hacker i was concerned that one rider was wearing high heel cowboy boots and another had anunsuitable jacket left flapping open, which could have easily got caught on the trees. as an adult i coped with the… Read Full Review

Disappointed, pony had hopefully seen better days, very sluggish paid for 1 and a half hour ride, back in yard after 1 hour 5 mins cost £28.00 they seemed to be trying to fit in as many treks as they could daughter found ride very boring compared to other treks she has been on. Would not go again.
