Brecon Beacons, Beaches, Pub Rides, Welsh Cobs, Castles & Cambrian Mountains

Equitrekking's Darley Newman explores the Gower Peninsula, the rural West and Brecon Beacons National Park, riding to the pub, visiting a Welsh Cob stud farm, King Arthur's Stone and Cerreg Cennen Castle.

In Equitrekking Wales, Emmy nominated host Darley Newman gallops on wide, dramatic beaches to Neolithic tombs, castles and the pilgrimage site of King Arthur's Stone on the Gower Peninsula. Her local guide points out wild Welsh Mountain ponies as they trek above the ocean. Staying at Parc le Breos, a historic 19th century hunting lodge, Darley feels like she's stepped into a novel in beautiful Wales.

In West Wales, Darley learns about life in this rural section of Wales from her local guide from Caeiago, as they ride high in the Cambrian Mountains to take in views of the patchwork countryside. After exploring the mountains and valleys surrounding the Brecon Beacons National Park with Tregoyd Mountain Riders, Darley takes her horse for lunch at the pub in a quaint Welsh village. Then it’s on Derwen International Welsh Cob Centre to learn about Welsh Cobs from Ifor Lloyd, whose family has bred Welsh Cobs for generations.
