What to bring


Cantref Riding Centre is a family run Pony Trekking Centre established for over 45 years in the picturesque Brecon Beacons National Park just 3 miles from Brecon, half an hour from Merthyr Tydfil and Builth Wells and approximately an hours drive from Newport, Swansea, Cardiff and Hereford.  We are easily accessible from the South Wales valleys.

As well as offering 20 minute, hour, half day and day pony treks and horse riding lessons Cantref also has an on-site children's Farm Park, Cafe and Gift Shop.  This gives you a chance to relax and enjoy some home-cooked food or homemade cakes after your ride and buy a souvenir to remind you of your memorable day out in the Brecon Beacons.  For families looking to combine their horse ride with a day out in the farm park we have live shows every half an hour such as bottle feeding, pet handling, tractor rides etc and loads of indoor and outdoor play.  This is also a great option if not all your group want to go out on the horse ride.

For those looking to extend their stay Cantref also offers camping for tents in their 5 star camp-site or for groups we have a 24 person or 10 person bunkhouse accommodation.  At Cantref we can also offer riding breaks.
