Equestrian Centres and Trekking
The Vale of Neath and nearby Afan Forest Park boast some of the best riding in the country, with breathtaking views of the surrounding area high up in the forests. There are well over 64 km of bridleways and over 48 km of forestry tracks for your enjoyment. There is very little road riding, so most routes suit the absolute novice as well as more competent riders.
There are purpose built centres, ideal for beginners taking their first lessons and professionally led treks through the heart of the countryside. A number of centres cater for riding holidays for the family with a range of cosy log cabins and award winning guesthouses.
There are many equine related events to enjoy throughout the year, in particular the harness racing at Tairgwaith, which attracts competitors and spectators from all over the UK.
