The Gables small holding offers excellent equine facilities. Riders bringing their own horses can use our safe, well sheltered paddocks for turnout, aswell as a secure tack room and ample parking. Some stabling is available by prior arrangement. Turnout is both plentiful and of varied quality. Separate paddocks are available where necessary and these are large enough to be divided with electric fence, should you need it. We can offer guided rides (time permitting) or provide you with simple maps of local hacking routes.
As riders ourselves, we can tell you that Halkyn Mountain is a great place to ride. There's something for everyone - from gentle hacks on safe, well established tracks to 'full on' galloping over open country with complete freedom from traffic. And for those riders who may be apprehensive about hacking out in an unknown area, we can confidently assure you that the mountain is very easy to navigate. You do not need to be skilled in map reading or orienteering. If you're planning to stay longer there's plenty more riding in the local area. There's Talacre beach where you can access 5 miles of sandy beach and join the BHS North to South Bridleway. Mostyn Farm Ride, with its XC jumps and interesting trails through fields and woodland, is a short drive away and there are many local Fun Rides running across the year, including those organised by the Flint and Denbigh Hunt.
For those of you who are closer or who maybe just want a 'taster' experience, we also offer 'Day Rides'. Secure parking and use of our facilities, a simple map and information on the mountain and a sumptious Lunch/Afternoon Tea on your return are included. Please contact us directly to book this to avoid any disappointment, especially during peak times!
