New 300km trail opens to riders in Wales

Posted on | 0 Responses

Equine insurance customers could be interested in heading to the Neath Valley area with their horses in the near future, after a 300-kilometre track was opened for riders to enjoy.

The Forestry Commission Wales managed to strike a deal with the owners of the Aberpergwm Estate and it is hoped that a number of horse insurance customers will visit the area to boost tourism in the region.

Forestry Commission Wales community ranger Jonathan Price said there had previously been no access for horses apart from on a limited number of rights of way throughout the forested region.

"With this area being added to the horse riding provision within Neath Port Talbot, it means there is almost 300km of accessible tracks to ride. For horse tourism this is a great resource," he added.

Horse insurance policyholders looking to take a trip over to Wales with their equine would be advised to be aware of the weight of their horseboxes, after recent research showed that 64 per cent of horseboxes are over-laden.
