Perfect ride out for all ages and abilities
Oct 2020
My family and I were staying at Seaview Cottage in St Dogmaels and fancied doing something different on holiday, and we were recommended Crosswell Riding Stables. We are all relative beginners and my sons age 18 & 20 yrs had never even sat on a horse !
We had a beautiful, gentle ride through woodland and for the five of us, there were three guides with us, so we felt completely safe at all times. We were out riding for just over an hour but I believe this is very flexible to suit individuals.
The riding was excellent value for money, very well organised and the ladies riding as out guides were very reassuring. I would highly recommend this trip and also our stay at Seaview Cottage.

Fantastic half hour hack for an extended family of 8, aged 5 - 65. Friendly encouraging team at the stables and calm well looked ponies. Excellent value for money. Would highly recommend

Brilliant 2 hour hack
Aug 2020
Was on holiday in the area for just a week and my 12 year old daughter went for two 2 hour hacks in the week. She enjoyed them both immensely. Great value, the horses are clearly well looked after and the staff are all super-friendly and helpful. The hacks themselves were both different, over varied terrain. One was just herself and lead rider (Amber?). Despite being caught out under a tremendous thunderstorm and downpour,she felt safe on the pony (Pie or Pye?) and loved it. The second she rode Tiggy and this time with a group of “older ladies” who despite the age gap and them knowing each other they made my daughter feel very welcome. She particularly enjoyed cantering! A real big shame is that we don’t live in the area as we would be regulars. Thoroughly recommend Crosswell Riding Stables to anyone...

Excellent pony trek
Aug 2020
An excellent hour-long pony trek for 4 of us - 2 riders, one lapsed rider and one non-rider. Enjoyed a walk and trot up into the Preseli Hills. Horses were lovely to ride. Our non-rider was well looked after and really enjoyed the experience. All staff were really friendly. Really good value for money. Overall a wonderful trip and highly recommended to anyone looking for a ride.

Excellent lesson followed by a mini ride through the woods
Aug 2020 • Couples
We were booked in for a half hour lesson followed by 1.5 hour ride through the woods but sadly due to the weather it had to be cancelled. Carolyn was fab at rearranging and doing her best given our time frame so we had a half hour lesson then half hour ride a day or so later. It was utterly fabulous, friendly staff and amazing horses. The time was thoroughly enjoyed and was good value. Highly recommend and if we lived closer we would definitely visit more often.

A beautiful beach ride
Sep 2019
We would both recommend Crosswell Riding Stables to anyone. We are reasonably used to riding out with experienced riders, but the lovely people at Crosswell, are exceptionally helpful and reassuring.
We took a beach ride with them last Autumn (September 2019) and had the ride of our lives. So much so, that we aim to ride out with them as many times as we can afford during our holiday to Pembrokeshire in April.
Happy horses, great people, totally recommend.

Charming dedicated riding venue
Aug 2018
We've been going here in the holidays for years, from lessons and the excellent fun days for children to a 4 hour hack for adults. The team are always charming and the ponies well looked after. Safety appears well-considered. The hacks are beautiful; from the shortest half hour on a lead rein we've worked up to 2 hour family rides. It was great for my kids to be able to come out of the riding school and into the countryside and such good value that I could go too. Wonderful to be able to enjoy rides together.

Well schooled horses and super friendly staff.
Feb 2019 • Couples
Very impressed. After my first experience, dragging my "poor" partner (inexperienced rider) along, hacking out with Sarah, I had to come back. I thoroughly enjoyed the well gauged and varied trek through country roads, woodlands and hills.
This time I was back with further two friends, and yes with my partner. The horses make you feel safe and are very responsive.
Our group was a mixed goup of novice and advanced riders.
We were guided by Carolyn the owner and "boss" of Crosswell Riding Stables and by Sarah. Treating us to individually tailored horse riding experiences.
Both were so welcoming and patient with us. Making us feel relaxed and being able to enjoy the ride very much. We all had an amazing time. Thank you very much, Carolyn and Sarah.

Top quality riding experience
Jul 2018 • Family
My 4-year-old daughter and I had a fabulous time riding here.

It was my daughter's first time on a pony and Carolyn instilled so much confidence in her. She enjoyed a lesson in the sand school and a 30-minute trek which completely captured her imagination as it went along a magical bridle path, which she was sure was full of fairies. Carolyn had her trying a rising trot and going up and down short but quite steep hills. The pony was beautifully behaved and the entire experience was very positive.

I am a rusty rider with some experience as a teenager. I joined a 2-hour trek around the mountain with 5 other riders and it was fantastic. Again, Carolyn instilled me with a lot of confidence and my horse was solid and dependable (if a little sweaty!). The views from up the mountain over the land and sea were simply heart stopping and the chance to see it all from horseback was quite unique for this city dweller.

The school has everything you need to enjoy a ride, whether it's in the sand school, along bridle ways or up the mountain. I completely recommend it to anyone thinking of giving it a try.

Holiday highlight !
Apr 2018 • Family
My 3 grandchildren stay with me most school holidays and they have been coming here for lessons and hacking over the last 3 years. It is the highlight of their holidays. The tuition is excellent and Carolyn, Sarah and all the helpers are unfailingly friendly and helpful. Not only are the children learning to ride, but my grandson has shown increased confidence and self-esteem altogether. It is not easy to bring three of them - they would ride every day if I'd let them ! - but prices are kept reasonable and the whole experience is excellent value. The 'Own a Pony Days' have been a hit too.
