Horse with a long face

There are many excellent riding centres in the area, suitable for all ages and abilities. From a gentle trot to a full blown gallop, what better way is there to see the beauty of the surrounding countryside?

The area around Llanthony Priory is particularly worthy of mention, with various bridleways and trails throughout the stunning scenery of the Llanthony valley, with easy access to Offas Dyke path.

The Brecon Beacons National Park maintains a number of official routes in the area (along with around 600 miles of bridleways and tracks) – visit for more information.

Just half an hour away is Chepstow Racecourse, which holds many prestigious events through-out the year.
