WALKING and cycling paths have and are being improved in Llandrindod Wells in recent months – but this week news of improved horse travel is the talk of the town.
The Llandrindod Wells Town Horse Park – the first 21st century horse park – is opening on Thursday, September 22, at 12.30pm at the Llanerch Inn, near the town’s old police station.
Traveling by horse was always a historic way to get around in Britain so it seems fitting that the horse park is being hosted at a pub that dates back to the 16th century.
The horse park is being supported by the British Horse Society (BHS).
“A lot of the focus on active travel has been walking and cycling but horse riding is also included within the definition,” said Llandrindod county councilor Pete Roberts.
“I’m therefore pleased to see this work developed locally and funded by the British Horse Society come to fruition. Congratulations to them and thank you to the Llanerch Inn for making the land available to turn this idea into a reality.”
For more information, contact the Llanerch on 01597 822234 or come down to the pub on Thursday. Alternatively, contact Helen Donnan, the BHS access field officer for Wales, on 07521 059124 or email [email protected]
