About our Stables
Set within the traffic-free confines of the Centre and its surrounding 80 acres of woodland and pasture, Clyne Farm Stables is the ideal venue for all levels of riding expertise.

We have a range of horses and ponies who are all constantly trained and assessed for their suitability for all levels of riding experience, age, and physical abilities.

Whether you’re on your own or with a group, you will have a fantastic time riding with us here at Clyne. You’ll get the unforgettable experience of horse riding with a beautiful backdrop of the panoramic view of Swansea Bay and the North Devon coastline.

Clyne Farm Centre is a member of the Wales Trekking and Riding Association (WTRA), adhere to all safety regulations and are inspected annually.

LESSONS

All lessons take place in our 20m x 45m all weather riding arena and are supervised by our experienced staff.

Group, semi-private or private lessons:

  • Beginner Lead Rein: 30 mins.
  • Beginner Off Lead Rein (walk independently): 30 mins.
  • Intermediate (walk & trot independently): 1 hour.
  • Advanced (walk, trot & canter independently): 1 hour.
  • Advanced (Jumping): 1 hour.

HACKS

The majority of our hacks take place in Clyne Valley Country Park or across Clyne Common.

We are not a trekking centre. So to hack out you will need to be able to ride at Intermediate Level at least. This means you can ride independently & control your horse/pony at both walk and trot as a minimum.

Group, semi-private or private hacks:

  • Intermediate (walk & trot independently).
  • Advanced (walk, trot & canter independently).

LED WALKS

A led walk is a great option for young children and novices. The horse or pony will be led by an instructor on foot. Suitable for children 2 years and older.

A 15 min led walk is usually plenty for children aged under 5. Children aged 5 years and older can try a 30 min ride.

For young children, we ask that a parent/guardian walk beside them.

A led walk is also a great option for the whole family as children and adults can all ride together.

INTRODUCTORY SESSIONS

New to horse riding?

Introduction to Ponies – In this session you get to groom your pony to get to know them & to get them ready for your ride. Then you enjoy a led walk across Clyne Common. On your return you will be able to give your new friend a tasty treat.

ADOPT A PONY

Our Adopt a Pony sessions continue to be extremely popular with all ages. For novices and experienced riders we offer full and half days which include aspects of both riding and stable management.

You adopt your own pony for the day and learn how to look after its every need including grooming, feeding and tacking up, before you ride out on the great Gower plains. A half day includes a ½ hour lesson/hack. A full day includes two ½ hour lesson/hacks.
