Crosswell Riding Stables is a Licensed Riding and Trekking Centre which has been established for over 25 years. Nestling in the shadow of the Preseli hills in the heart of the undiscovered Pembrokeshire National Park you will find Crosswell Riding Stables, where the atmosphere is relaxed and informal and the views and scenery are stunning. We offer riding for all abilities and offer treks and lessons. All lessons are in an enclosed sand school and trekking is varied between woodland trails and the surrounding mountain ranges.

My horse was stabled here for two nights as we were competing at the venue. Caroline, the owner was most helpful and friendly. We have ridden from here, several years ago on her well behaved and well cared for ponies.
