Lunch and Refreshments: We do not recommend that people carry food with them on the ride, although a small plastic bottle of mineral water can provide a welcome drink on a hot day. At lunch time we will stop at a cafe or pub where you can chose your own food. Food and refreshments are not included in our prices however and everyone pays separately.

What to Wear

For all Riding Activities at Pentre Riding Hats to current British Safety Standards must be worn. These are available to borrow, free of charge. We require that you also wear suitable shoes or boots with a smooth sole and a low but substantial heel. We suggest that all riders wear trousers or leggings (shorts are not suitable for riding whether worn by ladies or gentlemen). As we are likely to be riding on high ground, where it is often cooler, warm clothing and waterproofs may be needed.
