Where can I ride in Wales?
These forests have trail maps and facilities include ample space for turning with your horse box, as well as corrals and picnic tables giving you a place to relax after your ride.
Other places to ride:
Sometimes parts of forests are closed because of events or forestry work. Please check the Outdoor Wales onLine Map for current and future closures under the CRoW 2000 Act. Wherever possible, Natural Resources Wales aims to minimise the disruption to forest visitors and to Public Rights of Way, and will only make a formal CRoW closure/diversion if there is a Health & Safety risk. On-site signage will also tell you whether rights of way are open or closed.
