We had a great experience at Snowdonia Riding Stables. We had initially booked the half day mountain ride, but we had to take the ferry back to Ireland the same evening and our 5pm ferry was cancelled. We had to take an earlier one, and asked the stable manager upon arrival if we could do a shorter ride instead. I... More

We visited the stables on 18/02/17. We received a warm welcome from Patch and the staff. Transition from forms to hats to sitting on horses was swift. The four horses we had were Hazel, Beauty, Jacob, Kazak, each horse had their own quirks.We set off into the beautiful countryside with instructors Tas and Becca. They were both very informative and... More

I had the most amazing day with my daughters on a 3 hour hack into the mountains. The stables are well maintained with great horses and fantastic friendly staff. Would like to say a special thanks to Tas who lead the ride for giving my daughter the confidence to do the ride. He made the ride so much more enjoyable... More

I went for a half day ride, and it was the most enjoyable one I've been on. I called very short notice, and they were able to fit me in, as I was visiting from the United States. I was a little hesitant because I have only ridden western, but I gained so much confidence, and the guide was very... More

We went for a half a day hack and were so lucky to get to go with Tash who is a very professional and fun guy to hack with. He was particularly patient with the two teenage girls who were with us, took the time to tell us about the history of the area as well as take photos of... More

Tash took us on a half day trek in to beautiful Snowdonia National Park. Having not ridden for a number of years, we were grateful for his handling tips and his calm style throughout the afternoon. The weather wasn't on our side, but Tash shared lots of local knowledge to distract us from the cold wind. Tash is really cool... More

Fantastic day out for my Daughter. She now wants to be a treck guide !! She said Tas made her feel at ease and gave her confidence in some terrain she had never been with horses before. A must for any horse rider!

Highly recommend Snowdonia Stables. Staff are great - helpful, pleasant. Lovely horses, to suit all abilities. I ride here every week, have done for years and thoroughly enjoy the riding combined with the social occasion. Tas definitely makes a ride one to remember - very helpful for nervous riders, he makes you feel much more confident.

The 3 of us went for a half day ride, 2 adults and a 15yr old, great experience! There was a mix of abilities within the group (us being the non experienced) and they gave us plenty of opportunities to trot and the more experienced lady plenty of opportunities to canter (she made it look so easy) the chap that...
