Horse riding lessons and hacks!
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.
Whether you're on your own or with a group, you can book a riding holiday or a tailor-made course of lessons and hacks. And whatever your requirements, 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.
And if you're new to horse riding, our Horseshoe Awards allow you to measure your progress and be awarded a real bronze, silver or gold horseshoe as you learn and develop.
Clyne Farm Centre is a member of the Wales Trekking and Riding Association (WTRA). We adhere to all safety regulations and are inspected annually.

All lessons take place in our 20m x 45m all weather riding arena and are supervised by our experienced staff.
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 groups and physical abilities.
The majority of our hacks take place in Clyne Valley Country Park or across Clyne Common. For the more experienced, hacks can venture all across Gower. Popular destinations include Pennard and Cefn Bryn. Unique beach rides are also available for experienced riders (select months only).Book Now!
Lesson and hack times
We have lesson and hack times throughout the day. Start and finish times are dependent on the time of year. When the evenings are lighter we offer rides after school and into the evenings.
For standard lessons and hacks riders are allocated to rides with other riders of a similar ability. One-to-one lessons and hacks are available for a more personal experience.
Riders need to arrive at least fifteen minutes before their ride time so there is time for them to check in at reception, and be fitted for hats. If you arrive after your booking slot you will miss your ride with no refund available. On your first visit you will need to complete a short registration form. This will need to be updated annually. You can download the form here and bring it with you to speed things along.Book Now!
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.Book Now!
