We organise the supervision and assessment of these expeditions, provide group equipment and support and advise participants through the route planning process, where they benefit from our exceptional local knowledge and experience, whilst Cantref Riding Centre provide their reliable, trustworthy horses and all the horse riding equipment.

A perfect blend of expedition skills and knowledge provided by our experienced staff and sure footed, sturdy, gentle natured horses, full of their own character provided by Cantref. They become your best friends for the expedition!

Our horseback expeditions are as pure a challenge as it comes, the journey becomes completely self sufficient, all the equipment is packed and carried in saddlebags and this packing and organising becomes a key skill within the expedition. A true adventure and a highly memorable and rewarding way to complete a DofE Expedition.

If  you have a group of 5 to 7 participants already, please contact Alix to discuss a private expedition for your Gold Award?
