Gilfach Farm Livery and Holiday Cottage

Diary (Mid September 2010)

The End of Summer?

Despite the usual moans and groans about the very seasonal weather the British Isles "suffer" from, each season brings its merits.  For us - in a small valley of the north-western edge of the Brecon Beacons, the beginning of Autumn is bringing chilly nights, warm (& often ) damp days, and a flush of greeness  to our fields.  It is, still, truely beautiful.

Despite the run up to Winter, guests, both previous visitors and new, are continuning to "sign-up" for the Gilfach experience.  Our small, but wonderful, range of horses are the ones that enable us to give each rider that "crosses our doorstep" a bespoke holiday away from the humdrum perhaps?

The Horses

The change in season is bringing a change in stable management, with Larry, Alfie, Molly, George, Frankie joining the ranks of "live-in" horses over night now. Firefly (who some of you may have seen via Larry's facebook diary) is on box rest recovering from a foot abcess, so she is in too.  Nearly a full house - lots of mucking out!!!


We are planning a new set of instructional holiday options here at Gilfach - perhaps putting more focus on the Classical Dressage side of equitation.  I was specifically asked today "what is Classical Riding"?!  I gave my version. 

What would yours be?  Do tell!


Hope to see you soon.
