DofE on Horseback

In partnership with Cantref Riding Centre, near Brecon we offer Gold and Silver Expeditions on Horseback, a truly memorable and challenging way to complete your DofE Expedition in the Brecon Beacons.

DofE on horseback is not an easy option, these are long, hard days, however, the reward of completing your expedition is high; you just have to earn it. Riders must be comfortable in different terrain, confident on roads, choose sensible routes in wild country, show the highest level of care for the horses and be prepared for lots of tack and horse cleaning as they do have a habit of getting dirty!

You will need to work well as part of a team and be happy to communicate well with others.

If you already have a group of 5-7 riders please contact Alix about how we could help you with Gold or Silver horse riding expeditions for your group.

If you are an individual or a few friends together please see our website pages for Gold DofE on Horseback or Silver DofE on Horseback.

What they're saying about us!

As we normally run our own expeditions in house we have high standards we wish to maintain. This they did to a very high standard. Even though we had a large cohort they took our requirements in their stride and put together an excellent and well thought out expedition. We were so satisfied we have booked again for the coming year.
Thank you for all the trouble you went through to make our trip amazing! I had some feedback from parents and they are very impressed by the level of organisation the fact that their children felt safe and pushed themselves to the limit 🙂 I had a few comments about how much the students had learnt about themselves. I was really impressed by the level of professionalism and experience of your team.
I completed my Gold D of E expedition with Expeditions Wales and had a fantastic time! I had a great leader and learnt so many new skills. I enjoyed my practice expedition with Expeditions Wales so much that I went back for my assessment. I would recommend Expeditions Wales to anyone.
Thank you for making my expeditions so much fun! I would recommend Expedition Wales to anyone, and if you have people uncertain about doing an open expedition on their own, please tell them they DEFINITELY should. I've had a brilliant time this summer, taking away some wonderful memories and making some great friends.
